The First Three Steps to the Buying Process

For the past decade, I’ve been helping buyers and sellers in Oregon, Washington, and California buy and sell real estate. If you are trying to purchase a home in today’s market, here’s what you need to do before you even start looking for a home.
Get pre-qualified- This is the first thing you should do when beginning the home buying process. You don’t want to go out there and start looking for homes, only to later find out you can’t afford the one you really want. It makes the process very disappointing. Know what you’re comfortable with spending beforehand, and know what your budget is.
Sit down and make a list- Make a list of things that are important to you in a home. Things like the school district, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, and amenities.
Find a good Realtor- You need someone who can get you into properties the minute they hit the market. In today’s market, homes are selling as quickly as they are listed. You need to have access to these homes as soon as they are listed.
If you have any questions for me, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you!
