You have been thinking about buying a home in MN. After searching for homes on the internet for awhile you are ready to take the next step. But now what? How do you get started? We will help you navigate the steps to buying a home in MN.
Find an Experienced Real Estate Agent to Help You.
Did you know that when you buy a home in MN, the seller typically pays the real estate commission? This means that you are able to have an agent represent you and your best interests without worrying about the expense. A good agent will be able to guide you through the entire process of buying a home and can refer you to the other professionals that you will need along the way, such as a lender, inspector and title company. A real estate agent will save you time and money, because they know the area, know the market pricing, and have access to the most current list of homes that are available for sale on the MLS so you don’t miss out on that perfect home.
Many buyers stumble upon an agent because they see a home that they like, and call the listing agent to see the home. The better way is to hire a real estate agent before you start looking at homes, and that agent will work hard to find you the right home that fits your criteria and budget. An experienced real estate agent will show you how to structure an offer to fit your needs, negotiate the best price and terms, and make sure the entire process goes smoothly for you.
Once you are pre-approved for a mortgage by a lender, we like to sit down with you before looking at homes to get to know you and clearly understand what you are looking for in a home. At our initial consultation we will walk you through the entire buying process and will save you time, because we will be able to preview homes and network with other real estate professionals to find you only the homes that fit your needs, sometimes even before they hit the market.
