RCM Can Help Your Find A House For Sale
Be Pre-Approved for a Loan
Are you looking for a new house for sale? Unless you just won the lottery, you will likely be financing your new home. Before you do anything else, get pre-approved for a bank loan. Imagine finding the house of your dreams, but not already being pre-approved. All the seller really wants to do is move their house for sale. So while you’re waiting on the sometimes lengthy pre-approval process, someone else could easily swoop in, and make a bid on YOUR dream house! But you can’t do anything about it, because you didn’t do the very first thing you should do before looking at a house for sale, you neglected to get pre-approved for a loan! And you might very well miss out on your perfect home.
Pre-Assess your Housing Desires
This might seem like an adolescent exercise, but we assure you, this can really keep your house for sale search on-track! Perhaps location is most important to you. Put it at the top of the list. Maybe it is square footage, or number of bedrooms and bathrooms, or a finished basement, or whatever other possible factors are most important to you. Remember, there’s not just one house for sale out in the market, it’s a sea of potential houses! Be honest, but prioritize your desires. That way you are surer to get the things you really want in a new house for sale. And if you happen to have a family; well you should definitely include their desires on the “dream-list” as well.
Don't become enamored too quickly
It’s not necessarily negative to envision yourself, your furniture, your belongings, your family, or your dog in a new prospective house for sale. But chances are, if it seems too good to be true, it really might be. Don’t dull the rest of your search by falling in love with a house that you KNOW is out of your price range, or doesn’t match your assessed needs and wants.
