Buying a home can be one of the best feelings in the world. Nothing beats that feeling of security and
satisfaction when you open the door to a new home and are happy with your purchase. The question is, how
can you best ensure that feeling is going to happen? There are a lot of pitfalls in the real estate world and
naturally you want to be able to avoid them and end up with a great home. Here are some great tips on how
to streamline your home purchase and keep those little headaches from cropping up.


Enough cannot be said about being financially secure and aware. If you spend some time organizing your
finances before making an offer the process becomes much less stressful. Take some time and research your
credit history and find out if there are any outstanding issues or problems and get them taken care of. This
can negatively affect your chances of getting a good mortgage, so it's in your best interest to clear any credit
issues up before the buying process starts. Most mortgage companies will offer you a pre-qualification, now
this is nice to have but you are better off to take it a step further. Obtain a pre-approval for your mortgage.
The pre-approval gives you an absolute number to work with. Not only does this make shopping for a home
easier on you, but it gives you a significant amount of leverage in the actual sale.


The next logical step is to begin working with your realtor on finding homes that suit your needs. Let you
realtor know what things you cannot do without and those things that you would like and let them come up
with a list of fitting homes. During this time you can also research the available homes in your chosen area
on the internet and find places that appeal to you. With this ammunition you and you agent should be able to
view homes and properties with confidence and easily find a place that is agreeable to your needs, wants,
and wallet.
Once you have located the perfect property, have an inspection done. This step cannot be stressed enough.
Be wary of sellers who are willing to sell to others on the "no inspection" clause. This is never a good thing
and much of the time they don't want an inspection done for a reason. The inspection is extremely important
step in ensuring your protection as the new owner. After all, this is going to be home right? Don't ever sell
yourself short.
