Knowing HOW to buy a home in Orlando requires knowing the steps it takes in the fulfillment of your desire to buy that home for sale. Since this will be one of the largest expenditures of your lifetime, we wanted you to take a look at it from a third party’s perspective! This is a no selling presentation of the factors you can expect to be confronted with in your next home purchase.
STEP # 1 Shopping For Your Loan
House-hunting can be fun, but it can also be discouraging if you go about it in the wrong way.
It is extremely important that BEFORE you go out shopping you check your credit, your ability to pay out of pocket expenses and the ability to get a loan.
Think of it this way, if you were going to the local TV store to buy a big screen wonder set and you get there and you take out your wallet, no cash, no card and not even a check on hand. Unless you’re willing to pay the enormous interest rates the store would charge you just wasted your time and gas without making sure you could afford it first. Now you’re frustrated and irritated for nothing.
Don’t Get Your Heart Set On Something You Can’t Have!
* ALSO NOTE * Shopping your loan matters in a big way, but you must do it correctly an use only a small time frame so not to hurt your FICO scoring! Just a small movement in the percentage rate you pay can mean thousands of dollars, even tens of thousands, in interest over the years.
STEP # 2 Shopping For Your Home
As you know it’s not a go out and grab the first one you find process, it takes time, patience and the use of an agent that understands that it is a difficult situation for you!
STEP # 3 Closing The Transaction
The closing IS AS important as any other step in the process, yet it is one of the most overlooked by buyers, sellers and agents alike. They are all celebrating rather than paying close attention to the documents.
Today’s environment would not be this bad if more people READ the documents Before signing them! Always check the numbers! It may take a few minutes more to sit there and read those papers … BUT … a few minutes here can save you hours, even years of headaches down the road.
