Other important first steps of home buying are shopping around and leaving adequate time to make a decision. Having a financial plan set out ahead of time can help make your priorities clearer. Mike takes the time to find properties that meet your needs, and with that, he doesn’t just show you one, instead highlighting a variety of homes with the potential to best suit your needs.
