The market is both great for buyers and sellers. Home buying is favorable right now becuase of the great interest rate. Many people think "Am I making enough income to be able to buy a home?" Actually, the answer is usually "YES" because of the great interest rates, the available homes for sale, the motivated sellers and the wonderful market.

If you are interested in a specific type of home, such as a Single Family style, or a certain number of bedrooms and bathrooms, please feel free to fill out the form on the right hand side and I will contact you and send you an email with all the homes for sale under your criteria.

If you want to search homes by yourself, and then contact me to go see the house, please feel free to view my Re/Max website which offers all the homes for sale in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

Advantages of working with a real estate agent:

Real estate agents or brokers are generally paid through the sales commission paid by the seller when a transaction closes. So YOU will not have to pay your agent any money. Since agents have expenses and financial obligations just like you, s it will be to your mutual benefit if you chose a real estate agent and stick with that person. The agent will respect your loyalty and respond with a sincere commitment to you.

Real estate agents get information on homes for sale quicker than websites such as Realtor.com, homes.com and so on. Real estate agents have direct access into the MLS where websites such as realtor.com must have a computer go fetch the new updated information. On top of that, sometimes a realtor will not even have their listings on realtor.com which is why it's advantageous to YOU that you work with a realtor to know EXACTLY what homes are for sale.

All real estate licenses are not the same. Only real estate licenses that are members of the National Association of REALTORS are properly called REALTORS. They proudly display the REALTORS logo on the business card or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of homebuyers would use the same REALTORS again.

Home Buying Tips:

  1. To buy your dream home, the first thing you should do is get prequalified for a loan. Go to your local mortgage company or companies online such as Lending Tree and ask them to get your prequalified for a loan. The loan officer will tell you exactly how much the bank will give you. Based on that amount you can go shop for homes.
  2. Don't make any big purchases before getting prequalified for a loan. Big purchases such as cars are not a good idae. If you buy a car and you're married, you may find yourself leaning towards buying a new home or upgrading to a larger home. The loan officer follows methods and prequalifies you based on your income and expenses such as car payments, credit cards, etc.
  3. Changing employers wil not affect your mortgage qualification, especially if you're going to earn more money. However, for some home buyers, changing of the job can be disastrous for your mortgage application.
