Now is the time to start. It is best to be prepared.
You will need to get a Pre-approval letter.
You should sign up for you credit report to make sure you donâ€™t have anything on there that you may not know about. Sometime there are thing that need to be take care of and this may take time. There is nothing worse then finding your dream home getting the best loan then finding out there is a glitch because of an old credit issues that you did not know about.
You need to find a mortgage loan officer. Your loan officer should be able to help you with this part of you Real Estate needs.
Then you will need to talk to a few Realtors to find one that you will feel conferrable working with. Please let them know you are interviewing for a Realtor.
Please do not sign anything tell you are sure you want to work with this Realtor.
It is good to ask friends and family who they used.
Do a search online in the zip code where you would like to move.
Read the local news paper. See who works the area you are looking at.
Go to open houses in the area. Let the Realtor at the open house know you are â€œJUST LOOKINGâ€. Take you pen and paper with you start that list of likes and dislikes. Remember â€œwhen you buy a house you will be getting a neighborhood for freeâ€. So look over the area. Find the local stores, schools, parks, highways, hospitals or anything your family may need.
And remember that this can take a long time or it can go real fast tell your Realtor and Loan Officer what your time table is.
Good Luck with your House Hunting,
