Hello, prospective home buyer!
Congratulations on taking a step towards home ownership.
Before we go house hunting, I have to ask, are you pre-approved for a mortgage?
If you are not sure, please read why it’s important to be pre-approved before looking at homes and to learn more about the buying process.
If you’re pre-approved, excellent, I’d like to interview for the REALTOR® position and help you buy your home. You can contact me directly at 630.460.7953 or send me a message to set an interview with me.
If you’re not pre-approved, getting pre-approved from a mortgage lender is the first step towards owning a home, and I’d love to be a connector.
Feel free to browse at these lender service partners as they will help you navigate the lending process of your home. I also suggest you tap into your network and ask for lenders. Once you have a list, call them, interview them, and ask them questions.
Find out what 1st-time home buyer programs do they offer? Tell them to explain the different type of loans available.
Here’s a list of items you should ask your lender at the initial meeting.
A good relationship with your lender is important because they’re on your home buying team.
Once you are pre-approved, the lender provides you a pre-approval letter stating your loan amount and interest rate. Then it’s “house hunting” time. That’s where I come in and as mentioned, I’d love to interview for the position.
At the initial meeting, we go over your home search criteria and set you up to receive home listings via email. I also ask a lot of questions to learn more about your goals and buying timeline.
I step it up a notch and use Homesnap to text you listing, so we never miss what’s new. If you have Gmail, I use Google Calendar to schedule showings and send you the invites. Saving you time and unneeded stress.
Think of me as your project manager of finding your dream home through real-time search, comparative market analysis for pricing strategy, navigation of the contract negotiation process, and support for your questions and concerns.
Interview me as your Buyer’s Agent.
