About Your Agent
A real estate agent should be someone you trust and rely on. The relationship you have with your agent is very important and a crucial aspect to the process of purchasing a home for the first time. If you do not have a solid, trustworthy relationship it is best to cut ties and move on to a professional you can trust and confide in throughout your home buying process. It is important that the agent be up to date and knowledgeable of the current market to guarantee you the best outcome. Our real estate specialists at Katchen Company are experienced and dedicated to their clients’ best interests and become a reliable counterpart throughout the steps of purchasing a home.
Buying? Shop For Loans
According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, nearly half of homebuyers do not compare lenders. Their research has shown that if you shop around you are likely to find a mortgage with a half percentage difference. If you do the math, that can translate to up to $3,500 in savings a year. This is crucial to the home buying process and should not be something to be taken lightly. The right mortgage can make or break your financial reality and it’s nice to know how much “house” you can own.
It is super important to start the process early and getting pre-approved. It’s useful information for homebuyers to know exactly what they can reasonably afford. That knowledge can adjust their expectations and budget accordingly. Getting pre-approved gives buyers an opportunity to check their credit. This credit standing is one of the key factors that determine the terms and conditions of your loan. So become informed on which option best suits your situation.
