Your first step if you are thinking about purchasing is to get in touch with a loan officer to get pre-qualified.  They will let you know what price range you should stay in and what type of loan will work out best for you. If you have not considered buying a home because the rules have been too strict for your situation it is worth your time to call to see.  New loans with assistance and no documentation loans are now available.  Do you need a recommendation for a loan officer to contact?  Just let us know and we will make some recommendations.

If this is the year you are thinking about selling now is the best time of the year to sell.  We will update your market value and provide you with a net proceeds that shows an estimate of expenses so you know where you are at.  This will be updated when an offer comes in and we know all the terms so you can make a good decision.
