If you are thinking about buying a home this year you need to contact a loan officer and get them all your financial information. You need to go through the underwriting process so you know what you are approved for before starting to look at homes. You will be at a disadvantage if you do not go through this process. Homes are going under contract quickly and seller’s are looking for a buyer that is ready to go without having to wait to see if you qualify.
Request a home valuation if you are thinking about selling your home. Tell us a little bit about your home and what has recently been updated. We will provide you with a net proceeds that shows you and estimate of expenses to sell. When an offer comes in and we know all the terms we will update the net proceeds so you can make a good decision.
