DO YOUR RESEARCH
- To come up with a reasonable price, you need to know the local market. Your agent should have extensive knowledge and experience on comparable home transactions and the best offer strategy for the particular home you're interested in.
- When you are pre-approved by a lender before you submit your offer, you have a guarantee that they are willing to lend you a certain amount under specific terms and conditions.
SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP
- Get the assistance of a real estate agent to protect your interests. You also want to make sure that your written offer meets legal requirements.
PROTECT YOUR MONEY
- Arrange to have the deposit help in an escrow account (Not with the seller), so that your money can be returned to you if the offer falls through.
