1. Find the right Buyer's Agent
Even if you’re not quite ready to buy, your buyer’s agent can be an absolute wealth of information, and can often offer ‘scoops’ on local developments you might not have know about otherwise. Speak to your agent first and he or she can be helping to guide you right from the start.
2. Find out your price range
Online mortgage calculators are a good place to start, but as you get closer to being ready to buy, there is no substitute for a written mortgage pre-approval. Just speaking to your lender is an extremely worthwhile venture – this is the only way to really get an in-depth picture of your overall financial picture and to discover exactly what you can reasonably afford to spend on a home (and possibly on renovating).
3. Find out your true needs and wants
Compose a needs/wants list that takes into consideration your local market conditions, your price range, and the advice of your Charleston Flat Fee Real Estate agent.
4. Find your dream home!
Once you’re ready to act, you may be surprised by how quickly you can make a decision. Armed with your pre-approval, a little market knowledge, and your needs/wants list, call your Charleston Flat Fee Real Estate agent, hit the pavement, and when you see ‘the house’, put in an offer.
With Charleston Flat Fee Real Estate behind you, it really can be that easy!
