6 MISTAKES HOME BUYER'S MAKE AND HOW TO AVOID THEM

Buying a home can be a confusing process. Especially if you don't know where to start. Here are 6 of the most common mistakes that home Buyer's make, and more importantly how to avoid making them yourself. 

1. Not Getting Pre-Approved Before You Shop
If you don't know your budget, you might fall in love with a home you can't afford. In order to protect yourself from heartbreak, get a pre-approval from your bank or a mortgage broker. These professionals will be able to help you determine what you can spend when purchasing a home and what you can afford for a monthly payment.

WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT MORTGAGES

Purchasing a home is one of the most exciting and important decisions you will make. It is very important to use not only a Real Estate Agent that you trust, but also a Mortgage Broker or Bank Advisor who you can trust and who can get you the best mortgage product that suits your needs. 
What is the difference between a Bank Mortgage Advisor and a Mortgage Broker? 
The bank can only offer you their own product where Mortgage Brokers deal with banks, credit unions, mortgage companies, alternative lenders and private lenders. So how do you know what option is best for you?
If you already have a great relationship with your bank, you can always start there first. If your bank is unable to provide you with the approval you would like, a mortgage broker may have better options for you.
What about different types of mortgage products?
Traditional or Conventional Mortgages

These are mortgages that do not require mortgage insurance because they meet the requirement of hav ...

Would you perform your own surgery?

Not likely, because it's not what is in your best interest. 

The same logic applies when you are hiring a Real Estate agent. 

Commissions are expensive, period. The question is not whether to pay commission but instead do you want results and far more money in your pocket at the end of the day?

These are the reasons you hire a professional. 

Here Are The Facts

They know what your home is worth and they can explain why:

Even before you formally meet, a professional agent will have taken the time to do a comparative market analysis of your neighborhood so that they have a high level of understanding of what your home is worth. 

They spend time and money marketing your home.

Professional agents and their teams have proven marketing systems. They provide staging if needed, professional photography, print marketing materials and more. Your agent will also market your property online, not just on MLS but / ...
