The answers to how to buy a home can be confusing for many home buyers,
especially if you are a MN first
time home buyer. Since the process can be a bit complicated I would like to
share with you some basic tips of how best to accomplish your goal.
How To Buy A home in
Most Minnesota home buyers start their search for the perfect home on the
internet. There are many internet sites to begin this but a good location for
you to start is to use the MLS search engine on my website. There are thousands
of real estate sites out there but you will soon find that many lack all of the
important details when searching for a home. The large national websites, for
example, do not show the county property taxes for each home which is one of the
most critical factors when estimating what your monthly payments will be.

After you have been preapproved by a Minnesota mortgage lender I will take
you to available listings in your price range. I generally recommend that we
look through at least fifteen or more before you make your offer to buy one. By
searching extensively you will get educated on homes that are a good value to
buy. When a home comes available meeting your needs you should be ready to make
your offer since properties now sell fast.
the purchase agreement, and before closing
Once you have made your offer it normally takes about 30 to 45 days before
closing. Throughout this time your lender will collect all of your documentation
they need from you to complete your loan approval. Additionally they will order
an appraisal on the home to estimate the value based on the sale of other homes.
They will also order a title policy to make sure you will get clean title to the
home upon purchase.
Closing on your home
After your loan has been fully approved you will be ready for closing on your
home in Burnsville. At the loan closing everyone gets together to sign
documentation, exchange funds, and to give up property keys and welcome you to
your new home. Once youâ€™ve closed on your home you will now be a homeowner!
