Additionally, our economy is getting stronger and our investments are starting to improve once again, so if you keep at least half of your cash and place it in an investment vehicle, you are more likely to have more income and assets when you really need it and you will never need to borrow money at high interest rates because you utilized the low rates for low cost when you had the chance.
I would be more than happy to work with you via phone, e-mail or in person and can illustrate the benefits of obtaining a mortgage versus paying cash for a property.

We have a very comprehensive website and I set up a custom search to help filter the home criteria you are seeking. The new listings are updated several times throughout the day and when you see something you like and that you want to tour just click "GO SEE THIS HOME" -- you can save favorites, check out a street view, see all the features of the home and check out nearby amenities. Once on the page you can sort by your price range.
If you want to SAVE the search and register our system will then automatically email you the NEW properties that come on the market that meet this criteria -- it makes finding the right home so much easier!
Let me know if you have questions and happy house hunting!

When I work with my clients I search and network on their behalf. Often times I am notified about properties before they even come onto the market. After I set up a search in the MLS for my client,as soon as a listing agent enters a property that fits their criteria, I will get an email and I forward that off to my client for their review. In this market where inventory is low, speed is key. If you can be the first to see the property and submit an offer, you will have the advantage. Feel free to visit my website at http://www.nwhomes4sale.net. My site is linked with the NWMLS and refreshes every 24 hours so you will be seeing the most up-to-date information available.
It really starts by having a great broker representing you. Having them set up a search to show you the newest listings as they come on the market. The ability to assess the property outside of your desired parameters, what is the value, the resale potential and pitfalls the location or other issues may present.
Next a great broker can work with you on the best strategy to get the property for the best terms once youâ€™ve identified it. Some brokers arenâ€™t well informed or experienced regarding negotiations. Itâ€™s a lot more than bidding low and hoping for the best.
Having cash is great, in a competitive bid scenario you will have an advantage, but consider your options with financing being so cheap. If you did a 15 year loan below 3% and held onto some cash you may be better off, have more options and the capacity to buy somewhat higher, but it really depends on lots of factors.
Search for the best possible broker first. A great one is worth more than their commission and a bad one can cost you more than just the commission. Best of luck.
