In order to take advantage of today's great real estate values, there are 3 steps to get started.
There are more things for you to consider when buying a house than the monthly mortgage payment. I will want to have a discussion with you what your short and long term goals are for buying a home. After I learn more about what you want to achieve we will talk about the all of the types of homes for sale, as well as how to get a great value. Depending upon when you want the move to happen we will discuss the benefits of buying your home from a traditional seller versus a short sale. After this discussion I will set up an automated home search of all the listings that could possibly meet your needs in the location and price range you desire.
Before we go out looking for homes, you need to get preapproved. In order to find out how much you can reasonably afford for monthly mortgage payments as well as down payments, you will need to get preapproved for financing. When you talk with your mortgage lender, you will learn about all of the excellent programs available for MN first time home buyers. Did you know that there are down payment assistance programs for Shakopee first time buyers that can help you put as little as $1,000 down? The only way to determine your eligibility is to get preapproved for a mortgage loan.
Once you have been preapproved for a loan we can start looking at homes. After looking at so many homes on the internet, this is the fun part of the whole process. We will look at as many homes as it takes before you find the one that ideally suits your needs.
Conveniently located south-west of the city of Minneapolis, Shakopee MN is a popular bedroom community of the Twin Cities. Also known as the county seat of Scott County, the city of Shakopee has more than tripled in size over the last twenty years. Every year Shakopee attracts tourists from all around the area with popular destinations such as the Canterbury Park horse race track, the Valley Fair amusement Park as well as the Renaissance Festival. As an outer ring suburb many Shakopee residents commute to downtown Minneapolis for employment. MN first time home buyers in this area in this area will want to look into the Scott County home buyers club for up to $4,000 in down payment assistance.
Are you ready to start with the process? Please email me and we'll discuss what you want for your Shakopee home!
