Obtain a mortgage pre-approval thru a reputable lender: Your lender will pre-approve you for a certain amount but ultimately you must determine what you are comfortable paying every month. It is important to keep in mind that you will want to have a little extra money to be able to set aside every month for unexpected expenses.
Identify and view properties: Using the search tools available on the Sell Fast Realty website you can identify properties to view based on your established criteria. Once you have identified properties that you would like to see your agent will set up the viewings so that you can narrow down the properties to the one you would like to submit an offer on.
Write an offer: Your agent will write the offer, review the offer with you and answer any questions that you have. The offer will be submitted to the seller’s agent along with the ancillary paperwork and good faith deposit check.
