Do you need help buying a home in Fairhope, Spanish Fort, or really anywhere on the Eastern Shore or in Baldwin County
?Â It's the same everywhere!Â Many buyers make the mistake of deciding to buy a house, estimating the price they can afford, and starting to look as soon as possible.Â This couldn't be a more incorrect approach.
As I said, buying a home in Baldwin County is not unlike buying a home anywhere in Alabama, or the country for that matter.Â However, the first step needs to be PRE-QUALIFYING for a loan
, always.Â There's really no reason to even waste your time searching for that perfect home
if you don't know you can afford it!Â Qualifying yourself is the first and most important step you can perform.When buying a home, the second step you're going to want to perform is choosing your Realtor.Â You need someone who works the way you do!Â Every realtor is going to be different
and you need someone who you trust to find you your dream home and see you through the rest of the process.Â It needs to be someone who is knowledgeable on the market and someone who you can be comfortable speaking with.Â Don't assume the first person you speak with or the person's name on the sign is your only option!
Lastly, when buying a home, enjoy the entire process of searching
, making offers, and closing
!Â Your Realtor should make this process as easy as possible for you, so make sure you get that home you want and enjoy the excitement!Â Make sure you convey all of your needs and desires to your Realtor so they are equipped with all the information they need to locate your dream home in the MLS Listings, whether you want to be in a specific neighborhood, school district, or you want a home with a pool, garage, or a certain size.
