Do you know how to buy a home in Chandler AZ???
Step #1 GET PRE-APPROVED FOR A LOAN!
You would think maybe that this is something that comes after deciding what kind of house you want. If you know how much money you are going to be able to spend it will help keep you in a realistic mind frame and help you cut right to the chase for homes in your budget. Find out how much you have to work with and then go from there, it’s the first step in buying a home.
To get an preapproved for a loan, contact a lender (we can provide you with several great referrals of Loan Officers we’ve worked with in the past), tell them your looking at buying a home and would like a preliminary estimate. The lender will look at: assets, credit history and income. They’ll give you a pre-approved loan estimate in about 10-15 minutes. After that you should have a good idea of the price range of houses you will be able to afford when buying a home.
Step #2 Know What you Want
Do your homework! Some things to consider would be how bedrooms and bathrooms you’ll need as well as what kind of home you want (single family home, townhome or condo), whether you want a pool, a single story or two story home and more.Once you have an idea of the kind of home you want/can afford… what neighborhood do you want to find that home in?
When buying a home it’s important to think about where you work, where your friends and family live, places you go on a regular basis. Take a Saturday or Sunday to go explore those neighborhoods and look at what kind of homes are there. By spending a little bit of time driving around you should get a good idea of the home and neighborhood you want to live in.
Now you know about how much you’re going to be spending and what kind of houses you want to look at. These two steps are the first part of buying a home that you can do on your own. After this you need to find a real estate agent and actually go house hunting.
