It is critical in today’s tight lending market to talk to a lender and get pre-approved for a loan in the early stage of your home buying effort. Dana & Monika can help you identify a lender, or you can use your own, but it is a good idea to start these relationships as soon as possible. Having a pre-approval letter upfront will help you understand how much you can spend, and submitting the letter with a contract for a home makes your offer look stronger to the seller. Start this process early!

Home Inspection and Final Negotiations
Once the contract is agreed upon by the buyer and seller it is considered “ratified.” The contract will provide timeframe for you to complete inspections of the property before you are buy, typically 10 days. A home inspection safeguards you against unforeseen problems that could pop up down the road. A typical home inspection includes testing electrical and plumbing systems and appliances, and evaluating the home’s roof and exterior structure and foundation.
A similar but separate process is the appraisal. An appraiser will determine how much the house is really worth by comparing it to other similar homes on a number of features like lot size, square footage, etc. Your lender will order an appraisal of the home you intend to buy. You don’t have to be present. The lender normally sends a copy of the appraisal to the buyer.
