Home Buying in 75093>Question Details

Kpabalan%40g…, Home Buyer in

My husband and I are in the beginning stages of looking for a house. We are currently looking at 6401 Glen Hollow, Plano, 75093

Asked by Kpabalan%40gmail.com, Sat Sep 1, 2012

However, I'm not sure how seriously we can look. He is currently out of country for work and won't be home until November. What can I do to get the ball rolling?

Hi Kpabalan,

You need to first talk to a lender to make sure that everything on your credit looks good and that you are a able and pre-qualify buyer.

Next step is start talking to local reatlors that you came across with and looking at different homes in the same subdivision in the area to get familiar with the area, price/sq ft and school.

It takes about 30 days from the day you put an offer in to get you into the new home. So you are not that far off if you want to have a new home before Christmas. You have to be start looking pretty actively. In average, It takes about 2-3 months.

Good luck with your home search and please feel free to visit my website at http://www.findyourtexashome.com/plano/

We can help you.
Does he need to look at the home you buy or do you want to look together?

Probably best at this point if you want to look together is...
#1... Get prequalified with a lender.
#2... Start driving neighborhoods. See which ones you like and don't like.
#3... Start looking at homes online to see what you like and don't like ...and what prices are like.

Call me and we can get you started for example with a book about Your First Home.

Hi Kpabalan,

I would suggest that you get in touch with a lender if you are planning to get a loan. If you don't have one, I can refer you to some. The next step is to see how much you qualify for and how much you are willing to pay. Then you can start searching for homes in that price range. Do you already have a specific area and/or school in mind? If not, I would suggest working with a local realtor who knows the area and can assist you with the whole process of purchasing a home. I specialized in North Dallas and would love to assist you and your husband. Feel free to call me at 469-371-2899 to discuss.

Thank you!

Hi Kpabalan-

It's great that you want to get the ball rolling. The first thing I would suggest is finding a real estate agent to represent you as the buyer. If you use the listing agent she is limited in her abilities on the services she can provide you since she represents the sellers too. That's why I highly recommend finding a separate agent to be your representative.

I would recommend interviewing several agents to see their personalities and qualifications. Meeting people face to face is the best way to make your selection.

Next, I would get pre-qualified with a mortgage lender. You can do this while he is still out of the country since most allow you to start the process on line.

Once you finished these, have the agent you selected show you the home. Sometimes the pictures don't tell the whole story on line and it's easier to evaluate your wants and dislikes after you have seen the home in person.

Since many agents use an electronic signature program, working wit out of state and out of the country clients is easy. The only problem would be is at closing since lenders require a "wet signature" your husband would need to be present.

I would be honored to assist you in the process and represent you as your agent. Please feel free to text, email or call and I can further discuss your next steps and guide you towards a reputable mortgage company.

Best regards,

I would first recommend getting pre-qualified with a lender, which is half the battle, I can recommend a great one. Then select an agent you feel comfortable with that will keep an eye on the market, and make sure you're getting the best value for your family. I would be delighted to guide you and your husband through the process.

One of the first steps is to get pre-qualified for a mortgage so you know what your budget is. You can handle much if not all of this process while your husband is away by working with the lender. The lender who pre-qualifies you will provide a pre-qualification letter that most sellers want to see when you make an offer on a home.

Another first step is to identify a professional Realtor to assist you in the home search and support you throughout the process. With pre-qualification and a good Realtor you are ready to start the home search. And with today's technology there are creative ways to involve your husband in the search from his remote location. If you find a home you are ready to purchase before he returns many title companies can provide a mobile closing and take the closing papers to him depending on his accessibility.

I would love to talk with you about your needs and have the opportunity to earn your business. I can also recommend a good mortgage lender to assist you with the pre-qualification.

Wishing you the best in your home search!

I would recommend getting preapproved with a lender first, then work with an experienced agent for your purchase. If he's comfortable with you selecting a home while he's away, you can arrange for a power of atty to handle the transaction. I'd be happy to assist and will be in my office tomorrow after 10am if you'd like to call.
