Seven Steps to Finding a Home
1. In Finding a Home, Find the Best Realtor in your targeted market areas
Congratulations on your decision in finding a home! It is important to select a professional Realtor to work with you before you begin house hunting, so that your Realtor can help you define what kind of home and neighborhood would best suit your desires and needs. AmeriPlex Realtors, Inc. hires only the best of the best! Therefore, your home buying experience will be smooth and enjoyable. Our associates are experts in the above mentioned markets.
2. Get PRE-APPROVED first before finding a home
You need to find out what you can afford before you start finding a home. The best way to do this is to get pre-approved for a home loan. At AmeriPlex Realtors, Inc. our Realtors can refer you to a mortgage professional to begin the process within our specialty markets and beyond. Sellers want insurance that the buyer has financing approved before accepting an offer on their property. Once you are pre-approved, the seller can feel confident in knowing that you:
- have completed an extensive financial background check.
- have a lender who will loan you the money to purchase the home.
- are ahead of the game and ready to negotiate on the property.
Getting pre-approved requires that the lender review your finances, confirming pay stubs, tax records, credit accounts, bank statements and sometimes more. The pre-approval amount will not only be a reliable estimate of what you can afford, but your pre-approval also indicates that a lender is willing to do business with you, pending the purchase price, market appraisal and the underwriting process.
3. Time to shop and begin finding a home!!!!
Now, the fun part begins! Your expert Realtor at AmeriPlex Realtors, Inc. can show you any home currently listed on our specialty markets and beyond.
