Beginning the journey to find a new (or your next home) on your own may seem like an east feat. The Internet has become a friend to most where just about anything and everything can be found online. Type a few words on your keyboard into your preferred search engine and viola; your answer awaits you.
To the untrained eye, it seems easy enough, but a real estate agent does a lot of behind-the-scenes work that their clients may not even be aware of. They are busy negotiating offers, searching for homes, marketing your home to get sold and so much more. Realtor.com expressed its reasons why to never buy or sell without an agent in a recent article.
Before you dive deep into a home search it is always essential to obtain a pre-approval letter from a mortgage professional. It not only helps you budget when searching for a home but also gives peace-of-mind to know what is (and isn’t) attainable in your search guidelines. You may love that waterfront home with beautiful views on a large lot but it may not be affordable within your budget.
