Purchasing a home can be a tedious process! Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be complex and tiring. However, once you are determined to move forward with purchasing a home, the rewards are unquestionable.
I have the skills to make the process of purchasing a home easy, less time-consuming, and less expensive for you. It is much more enjoyable to hire a professional than to attempt it on your own. I can help you to become a preferred buyer in the perception of other sellers and their agents. I can also provide you with the most up-to-date market inventory so you will not miss your dream home. Based my experience buying and selling properties within Vancouver and Richmond neighborhoods, I am well equipped to advise you on everything from price to home condition assessment.
Your First Step
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger space? Next, list what kind of home you like and where. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider different areas (city, suburban neighborhood, country); communities (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhoods (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and type of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.
Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approvals for his/her clients.
