There is a slew of information for buyers on the internet. Sometimes searching and researching what to do and what not to do can be a big headache. So, we brought the 5 Buyer Tips together for you to reference back to whenever you need some quick resource for what to do–and what not to do–as a buyer.
1. Keep your credit clean.
Avoid taking on any financing debt or more credit debt before buying your property. Increasing your debt will negatively affect the loan process.
2. Properties priced right sell fast.
Make sure you have pre-approval and you act fast on the property you want before someone else snatches it up. The real estate business is very competitive.
3. Pre-approval is a must.
Avoid upsets by looking at properties out of your price range. This also speeds up the loan process. Don’t try to backtrack your way though the real estate process, that’s a recipe for frustration! Get pre-approved and start the process the right way.
4. Are you buying from a builder?
Always have a professional agent in your corner. You don’t want to give away any information that could hurt your negotiation power.
5. Be smart about your offer.
Unrealistic offers make other buyers look good. Also, you can offend sellers that would have otherwise been negotiable. Use an agent to make intelligent offers.
