Q…How do I find the Right REALTOR®?
A…A individual or team that has experience, and who looks after your best interest not theirs. Also someone who has local knowledge of the area which is the key in knowing if that REALTOR® is the right fit for you. Interview them and always ask questions.
Q…Do I need to get Pre-approved with a lender before going out and begin the process of looking at homes?
A…A good REALTOR® will only take a well qualified client out to look at homes. Why waist your time and Realtors time if you don’t know how much you qulify for in a home.
Q…How long should it take to find a home?
A…After your REALTOR® narrows down your search criteria, you should only be looking at homes that meet your criteria, most of the time this process should take no more than a few days to find the right home.
Q…How long does it take to close and move into a home?
A…Once you find your dream home, you will submit an offer to the seller, once accepted then you do an inspection on that home. Once you are through the inspection process, your loan conditions will need to be met, including the home needing to appraise either at value or above. The offer to close process can take up to 60 days and as short as 1 week if it’s a cash deal.
Q…How do Short Sales work when making an offer on one?
A…Short Sales are not short by all means. A short sale can take anywhere form 60 days to 9 Months or longer, we are at the mercy of the lender.
