I am a Buyer Specialist with the Mark Z. Real Estate Team here at Coldwell Banker.
I find many home buyers are not aware of the steps mandatory to make an offer on a home, condo or vacant land.
The very first step before looking at properties, if you are looking to take out a loan for the property, is to speak with a reputable mortgage lender. This will allow both the home buyer and Realtor to know what price range they should be looking in.
Working with a reputable mortgage lender is a must, especially in this market! With all the crazy things going on right now with shady lenders. Sellers are sceptical and want to be sure the offer they accept on the purchase of their home has no issues with financing. Sellers may even ask for a second mortgage…
