Winter has been fairly kind to us. Many buyers have awakened from their winter hibernation to get a jump-start on the spring buying season. Now is a great time to start looking and figuring out what you want. The question you have to ask yourself is where do I start? A great starting point is finding the right real estate professional who can help you throughout the process. He/she will be able to sit down with you to discuss your options and help you put a plan together that will work for you on terms you can appreciate. Your real estate pro can put you in touch with mortgage consultant that can tell you what you’re buying power will be. There are many new loan types and fitting one that meets your needs is crucial to the home buying process. From there, you and your Realtor can collaboratively put together a strategy that works for you. Real estate has a lot of moving parts Having a Realtor that will keep you on track and in the “know” is very important. The internet has a lot of information too. The problem with that is it is “interpretive data”. With many different laws and regulations, what you read may not apply to your specific municipality. A good real estate professional with keep you “out of the weeds” and on track. They can select the right course of action and make sure that your interests are protected. You also want a real estate attorney. Many people have family lawyers and criminal attorneys that they know but a real estate attorney understands time lines and knows the importance of contract fine print that will keep you safe.
