Forward Thinking & Planning Ahead
One of the best ways to ensure a successful home-buying experience is being prepared when the time is right. There are so many aspects of real estate shopping that can change over time. Having a plan for the things you can control puts you ahead of the game.
The process of determining what your dream home entails should start well before it comes time to investigate properties and submit an offer. This could start anywhere between six months to a year before you plan on moving. This time frame can move more quickly as needed, but giving yourself ample time helps us ensure you get the home of your dreams
One of the first ways to think ahead is to communicate to Mike where you envision living, the amenities you’re looking for, your financial situation, and what type of community you wish to reside in.
Mike will help you and your family think ahead and plan accordingly so you can move into the home of your dreams. He’ll help you find the right kind of properties, submit an offer, and set you up with the right home inspectors, taking the weight of the home buying on himself so that you can enjoy it more.
Determine Down Payment
Another step in your timeline is preparing to make a competitive offer when the time comes to move on your future home. Mike will help you navigate the offer and possible counter-offers, all while staying in your.
This process of determining your down payment should start well before you begin looking at houses, as it will determine what is in your range. The larger the down payment you can make, the lower your monthly mortgage will be. While it may seem scary to put a large sum of money down at once, in the long run, it can save you time and money.
You can work with your primary bank, or a financial planner, to determine how much you need to save for a down payment or what home loan options are available to you. This process can take some time, as savings can take time to build and loans may take weeks to process. Start early in the game so that you can work with Mike to find the home that is right for you.
Most importantly, however, is being flexible. While Mike will go above and beyond to make sure you purchase the home of your dream, this can take some time. He is dedicated to giving you the very best, however, and will guide you through any hurdles that may happen along the way.
If you are selling your home, and have an exact date you need to be moved out, then it is important to start looking early so that there is no gap in time between moving out and moving in.
