I wanted to share a few points with you that we provide to all our buyers when they are getting ready to begin looking for a home.  Here are the first 3 steps:

(1.)  Visit with your Lender:  Learn how much you would like to spend and how much you can spend.  If you qualify for the type of loan you want, have the Lender provide a “pre-approval letter.”  If you cannot purchase at the present time, your lender can help you develop a plan to improve your credit and save for the down payment. 

(2.)  Find your Realtor®:  Give us a call at Teri Norwood Real Estate Team.  We have an exceptional Team of Realtors® available to you.  We will work for you much like the Realtor that lists the sellers’ home works for them.  We will share our advice and opinions about the property, asking price, what you should offer and more.  

(3.)  Determine your needs:  You will need to choose from a long list of criteria of what you may want and need in a home.  (i.e. City or rural, School District, number of bedrooms and baths, size, age, price range and much more.)  Your Realtor® will provide information on the homes that meet your needs.   

I will be sharing more steps in the next few days so check back!  Have a great day!  Teri Norwood, Broker, Teri Norwood Real Estate Team
