Just like snow comes with winter, home sales spike in the Spring. Use these three tips to be ahead of the game when you find the perfect home.
1. Prep Your Finances
Knowing the budget you have to work with gives you a head start when you go to the market. Get a mortgage pre-approval to see the range of homes available to you so you don't lose time viewing properties that aren't a good fit.
2. Know Your Playing Field
Research what is For Sale and determine which areas interest you. Have a specific concept of what your looking for and get an idea of home prices and types available through your REALTOR.
3. Get Ready To Move
Home sales can happen quickly. If you are serious about moving this year, take some time now to box away items in storage so you're ready to move when the time comes (with much less stress).
March is the month to get ready for the busy Real Estate months fast approaching.
