“Don’t Miss Out On Your Dream Home!”
It’s true. Anyone can search for a home on the internet and may even get to peek inside of a few without signing on with a real estate agent, but with so many properties coming and going so quickly in the recent months, unless you work part-time or not at all, you may miss out on finding your dream home. Many properties that priced correctly and are in desirable locations, are selling within the first ten days of going on the internet. Professional Realtors, like myself, have the benefit of knowing what’s coming on the market, within 24 hours of them going on the market and sometimes prior to.
So, you found your dream home... What’s Next? Don’t panic. I know how to help!
Choosing The Best Realtor:
Picking an agent can be tricky, especially if you're new to an area. Do your research! There is a difference between an "Agent" & a "Realtor". Agents are able to represent you in buying or selling property, but a Realtor vows to follow an ethical code, throughout each transaction.
Testimonials and feedback will give you a good idea on who is providing outstanding services to their clients. Decide whether you want a full or part-time agent to work on your behalf. Essentially if you hire a part-time agent, you can expect they will work on your behalf part time. Likewise, full-time agents, like myself will GO TO WORK for you 40+ hours / week.

Helpful Buying Tips:
Save Your Money for A Down Payment & Earnest Money Deposit - The more money you have to put down as an earnest money deposit & down payment, the less money you will need to finance from a financial lender and lesser the amount of closing costs, at the time of closing. Down payment, deposit, & closing costs are three different costs associated with purchasing a property. You should consider saving for all closing and loan expenses, when considering home buying.

Spend Wisely - If you're a serious buyer, now is the time to become conservative with your spending. Mortgage lenders are prone to check your credit several times, through-out the Pending Sale process, to determine if you have enough to close on your home and ensure you can afford the new monthly payments. When you're in the process of buying a home, it's best to pay your bills on or before the due dates, hold-off on buying expensive items, and refrain from taking out additional credit lines or credit cards. In other words, it's best to buy only the necessities and refrain from extending any type of credit until after closing!
