A few points of advice:

  • Compromise always pays dividends:
  • It will be almost impossible to find exactly what you want, even if you build it yourself. And if you do find it, don't be sure your spouse will agree 100% with your choice. Find a property with which you both can be happy (and this usually means a compromise).
  • Look at comparables:
  • The best rule for determining the value of a property is to take real sales prices of comparable properties recently sold. To enable you to do this your agent must have very good market knowledge.
  • Get pre-approved for the purchase :
    This takes very little time and is of great value. At this time, identify the price range for which you qualify and which fits your lifestyle.
  • Submit a strong competitive offer:
    Submit the offer as if there will be multiple offers.
  • Minimize or eliminate contingencies:
    The fewer contingencies, the stronger the offer.
  • Personalize your offer:
    Sellers would rather sell their home to people they know something about than to a total stranger. Let Sellers know why you like their house, how big is your family, how flexible you are with the escrow, etc.
  • Be prepared to preview a new property quickly:
    Homes sell sometimes in hours. Be prepared to make decisions quickly and be accessible to change the terms instantly.
  • Keep communication open with your agent:
    Let your agent know the best way to reach you quickly.
  • Think ahead to the day you sell:
  • A property bought today is an important part of one's assets and will one day be resold: it is therefore advisable to take into account not just one's own taste and wishes but general investment criteria as well.
  • Keep your finances in order:
  • Pull a credit report on yourself and make sure the information is accurate. If you find any errors take steps to correct them immediately. Don't incur any additional debt. Consult your lender before making any changes to your existing debt structure. Don't make any major purchases - buy the furniture or car later.
  • Contact Julia:
  • Julia can help you determine how much you can afford, and she can provide you with information on homes that may interest you. Julia will also help you complete all of the necessary forms when it comes time to make an offer.
