If you’re looking to buy a home in the Bay Area, the housing market is very competitive! But the good news for buyers is mortgage rates are really low right now. Follow these tips to get the home of your dreams!
#1. Get pre-approved for a loan. This comes in handy if you see something you can act fast because the bank has already given you the go-ahead
#2. Familiarize yourself with the market. Know the neighborhoods and variety of home styles that might be available and start to know what you want so when you see it, once again you can act fast
#3. Weigh the temptation to forego the home inspection very carefully. Yes it can make you way more attractive to a seller, but a home inspection can also alert you to massive problems you wouldn’t have seen otherwise
