As Vermont’s premier residential real estate company, we realize that our buyers have various needs. It is our goal to make sure we listen closely and help you find a home that exceeds your expectations. In order to ensure a successful real estate transaction, there are a few things that we want our buyers to be aware of before beginning the real estate hunt.
Pre-Approvals Are Mandatory
Buying a home without knowing that you’ll qualify for financing is one of the surest ways to have a disappointing experience. A pre-approval not only gives you, the buyer, peace of mind, but it shows the sellers you are a serious buyer and makes your offer stronger and more credible.
Create a Personal Wish List
What features do you want in your new home? Create a personal wish list that consists of wants and needs. Your needs should be deal breakers. What are your essential needs that must be met in order to consider making an offer on a home? Wish lists help give your house hunt focus and it strengthens communication between you and your Realtor.
Ensure the House Meets Structural Requirements
Whether you’re purchasing a new build or a rustic farmhouse, it’s important that the house is structurally sound. This is why every real estate transaction should include a thorough inspection by licensed inspector. If a problem is discovered, we’ll help you negotiate with the seller to correct the issue.
Pre-approvals, wish lists, and inspections are just a few of the many aspects of buying a home. The process can be overwhelming even for buyers who are purchasing their second or third properties. This is why it is always a good idea to have a Realtor looking out for your best interests and available to answer your questions throughout the process.
