Whether Leasing or Buying, the key is to BE PREPARED!

If Leasing:

We are in a market where Lease properties are moving in hours or a few days at the most! It is imperitive to put your notice in with your landlord, and get in touch with your Realtor as soon as possible! Give your agent your search criteria so that a search can be set up that matches your needs saving you and your agent time and gas. You also will have a greater chance of success not looking at hundreds of homes picked by your realtor not knowing what you are looking for. Ask for and fill out an application prior to looking, keep it with you while searching! The minute you see the home you want you will already have your application filled out and put you ahead of other unprepared tenants that have to go home and fill it out. DO NOT BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE!

If Buying:

Same thing goes for buying, urgency is everything so If you are ready to start looking, know that you are able to buy and how much you are able to buy!   Ideally we as agents prefer clients that take a proactive approach and visit with a lender prior to looking. We need a pre-qualification or Pre-approval letter to turn in with any and all offers. This shows the seller and your agent that you are a serious buyer and strengthens your offer. Your agent should have a list of Mortgage professionals who can do this with a short phone-call.
