As we all know, the home buying market right now is the most competitive it has been in years! For both the first time buyer and experienced real estate pro, it can be overwhelming to think about even getting started.

We’re here with 3 simple tips to make the whole process feel like a breeze!

1. Find a real estate agent you can trust! This is so important for a swift process and to get the best deal possible. While I am licensed in Massachusetts and Rhode Island, I am happy to refer you to an agent in my network of Keller Williams professionals all over the country.

2. Get a mortgage pre-approval and understand your budget. Know that you may need to go over the asking price on a home right now, but that doesn’t mean you should overstep what you can comfortably spend. Consider looking for homes under your budget and go in strong with your pre-approval letter in hand.

3. Don’t fall in love with just one home! In an uber competitive market like this, it’s best to keep an open mind, and even consider expanding your radius. If at first you don’t snag your dream home, don’t let it get you down. You will find the perfect place to call home, trust us!

We hope these tips give you the confidence to start the process of home buying! Have questions or need an agent referral? Send us a message or give us a call.
