Here are a few quick tips to help you prep for your 2020 home purchase.
If you plan on buying a home in the spring of 2020, here are four things you can do now to start preparing.
- Calculate your buying power—sit down with a qualified mortgage lender and find out how much home you can purchase when it comes to principal, interest, taxes, and insurance.
- Determine which area you want to live in.
- Find out what style of home you want to buy.
- Think about any extra items that are important in terms of your purchase (e.g., what school district you’ll live in or where the nearest shopping centers are).
If you reach out to one of the agents at Omaha’s Elite Real Estate Group, they can walk you through this process right now. It’s always a bonus to be comfortable with a specific agent so that when homes start hitting the market, you have a point of contact who already knows you, has been working with your lender, and can help you make an offer the very first day a property you love comes on the market.
In the meantime, if you have any questions about this or any other real estate topic, don’t hesitate to call or email me. I’d love to speak with you.
