You don’t have to press pause on your real estate plans just because you’re staying home. Here are several things you can do now to keep on track with your home search.
1) Get Pre-Approved
Pre-approval not only shows you are a serious buyer, but it gives you a better idea of what you can afford. Gather documents such as your income verification, credit history and asset documentation and reach out to a lender for assistance.
2) Connect with an Agent
It’s a good idea to start working with a trusted real estate advisor now so that you can move quickly when it’s time. Whether you chat by phone video or email, they can help you navigate the dynamics of the real estate market without bringing your plans to a standstill.
3) Do Your Research
This is a great time to investigate down payment assistance programs in your area, especially if you could benefit from a low down payment option with your home purchase.
4) View Listings
While you may not be able to visit homes in person, there are several ways that you can continue to view listings. You can search listings online in our area through our website, you can ask your agent to send you listings based on your criteria, and you can request virtual video tours from your agent.
Don’t put your dreams on hold. This can still be your year to buy a home! We are here to help you on your journey.
