Buying a home


 Buying a home

Start your home buying quest with market research. Conducting detailed research will significantly improve your outcome when selecting a residence and its location. Utilize the excellent real estate resources that are available online. Study the market data online for an accurate picture of the current residential market. The following are four things I suggest you do. You should learn how to determine an accurate market valuation of a property, arrange to receive a daily hot-list of new properties on the market, arrange regular showings, and start discussing financing with a lender. 

  1. The first item I recommend is market valuation. Teach yourself how to quickly and accurately determine the market value of a property. You can get help on this. You will find this to be of utmost importance in the price negotiating process.
  2. The second item I highly recommend is receiving a daily hot-list. Make arrangements with a Real Estate Brokerage to receive a daily automated email of new listings that have come on the market. Take a minute every day to glance at the listings. You will be amazed at how this will keep you on top of things. Provided enough information you will be prepared to make informed, educated, decisions in regards to your housing needs. When you want to search particular parameters such as price, square footage, bedrooms, and location, you should use the Charleston Trident MLS.
  3. The third item I recommend is regular showings. You should  arrange showings and personally visit homes on a regular basis. You can arrange showings by contacting myself or any qualified licensed Realtor. Showings are typically arranged between the hours of 8am-8pm, Monday through Sunday. Some properties require a 24 hour notice. My  website can be used for extensive research, scheduling showings, arranging loans, arranging termite inspections, arranging home repairs, and scheduling closings. The homes shown on my site are located in Folly Beach, James Island, Johns Island, West Ashley, Downtown, Mt Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, North Charleston, Hanahan, Ladson, and Summerville.
  4. The forth item I recommend is financing. Start arranging your financing. Financing for a home purchase is the vital step in the buying process. There is no better time than now to get a document from a lender stating that you are Pre-Approved. Please note that mortgage brokers are unlike bank lenders. Bank lenders are employees of the bank. Mortgage brokers work directly for you and in your behalf. A mortgage broker will do everything possible to arrange a suitable loan for you.
