Questions & FAQ

Question 1: Why do I need a real estate agent to help me buy a home?
Answer 1: Hiring a real estate agent before you start looking at homes ensures that you have someone working on your behalf to show you only homes that fit your criteria and budget. We guide you through the entire home buying process, including negotiating the best price and terms that fit your needs, and work hard to solve the many issues that may come up during the transaction. The seller typically pays our commission, so why not benefit from our professional representation? Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.

Question 2: What does the Myra Jensen Team – Home Marketing Experts do differently to get my home SOLD?
Answer 2: The truth is, most real estate agents have no idea how to market a home.

Today’s buyers are buying a lifestyle. We work with you closely to learn what makes your home special and what attracted you to the home and neighborhood. Where do you shop? What do you do for entertainment? Using a beautiful Custom Property Website, great photos and video, we show potential buyers what it’s like to live in your home before they even visit.

Question 3: Why do I need a mortgage pre-approval before looking at homes?
Answer 3: Meeting with a lender to discuss your budget will confirm how much house you can afford for the monthly payment you are comfortable with, how much down payment you will need and will give you time to correct any issues that may pop up on your credit report. When inventory is low, the best deals on homes sell quickly, and often have multiple offers. You want the seller to know that you are a qualified and serious buyer. It is our policy not to show homes to buyers until they are pre- approved or show proof of funds. If you need a referral to a qualified lending professional,
please contact us. Read More here.

Question 4: What if I have a home to sell before buying my next home?
Answer 4: Deciding if you are ready to buy your next home is kind of like putting the pieces to a puzzle together. Our team will counsel you without making you feel pressured to skip any steps. We will research the current market and give you a realistic idea of of the NET proceeds you can expect to receive after real estate costs paying off your current mortgage. Then, sit down with a lender and get the facts on how much you are pre-approved for, how much down payment and closings costs you will need, and what you can expect your monthly payment to be. You should be comfortable with all these numbers before moving forward. Contact us to sit down for a consultation and free home market analysis.  More info about moving up here.
