Buying a house? You know you want to. Maybe it's your first time or maybe it's not. Either way, this still applies. Before you start looking at new digs, or if you already have, contact a mortgage specialist (or me because I can give you a stack of names) now. I tell any home buyer who will listen – find a specialist and have the conversation. Thinking you know what you can spend on a new home is not the same as knowing how much a lender will actually lend you.
It's so important to be prepared, because knowing your max spend informs your firm price, it narrows your search, and it makes you ready to put in an offer once you find the home of your dreams. It'll help your Realtor® work smart for you. Who doesn't want to work smarter?
Inventory for homes between $350-$500k is low in the Barrie area, so being prepared will help you get your offer in before it's too late. So, let's recap: call a local mortgage specialist today, or call me.
