Not sure if this is the right time to buy a home? Here’s 3 ways you’ll win when buying a home in Macomb this year.
This is not the market to be unprepared as a home buyer.
ONE | Mortgage pre-approval
Getting pre-approved now even though you aren’t planning to buy for several months is the smart approach.
It sets the proper expectations ahead of time so you know what you qualify for, how much you’ll need for down payment and closing costs, and how much your payments are going to be.
And if there are any unexpexted surprises that need to be corrected like credit score issues or debt pay downs, we have plenty of time to get those fixed.
TWO | MLS Search
Get yourself set up with a home search in the MLS. This will give you access to the current inventory of homes for sale in real time, without having to deal with the unreliable data on 3rd party portals like Zillow and Redfin.
THREE | Drive-by’s
Now is a great time to get in the car and spend some time familiarizing yourself with communities and neighborhoods to get an idea of what you like and what you don’t like.
