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 house? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. 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 an area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (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.
Your next step is loan pre-qualification. Once you have addressed the above needs, you need to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online. I have a group of trusted mortgage professionals that I trust and work with regularly. They have an excellent reputation for successfully acquiring loan approval for their clients. Call me and I can get you in touch.
Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which homes for sale on the Sunshine Coast will fit your needs by using the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) system to locate them. I have the best possible resources and communication systems at my disposal to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even search my listings here at my website.
I will help you complete your financing and inspections, and close on the transaction. My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.
