The competition for a great home is brutal right now. To get the home you want, you need to be prepared. You need to have a game plan. And you need an agent with the skills to get you over the threshhold.
Here's an up-to-date Buyer's Guide with information about the current interest rate environment, the credit score you'll need to qualify for a mortgage (it's lower than you might think!), and a set of guidelines for determining your "need to have" vs. your "want to have" features in the home you'd like to buy.
If you're ready to take the first step toward a home purchase but not quite sure where to start, I'd love to sit down with you to map out the best approach.
