Getting preapproved is the next step. You will want to ensure you are searching in the proper price range based on the amount of money you can realistically borrow and the amount you’re comfortable paying monthly. To do so, your mortgage professional will request income statements and check your credit history. Lastly, they will lock in your interest rate for a certain period, so if rates increase, you will be protected by paying the lower rate. If you need a trusted mortgage professional, please let us know. We’d be happy to introduce you. In the meantime, you may find our mortgage calculator helpful. Also, here's a handy article if you'd like to learn about common mortgage terms and lingo.
Top reasons to select Alan and Lori as your REALTORS®?
1. Free home buying service. We represent our buyers at no cost as our services are paid by the seller.
2. We are both full-time experienced ethical REALTORS® (many REALTORS® work multiple jobs and therefore are not up to date on all the nuances of real estate law and market conditions).
3. Get access to all the listings in Greater Vancouver & Fraser Valley.
4. See something you like? We’ll set up a private viewing based on your schedule.
5. Know the facts about the properties of interest to you. For example, have you heard of the leaky condo crisis, did you know the property could be on an oil pipeline or bog, is there an easement which could negatively impact the property? We will explain these important concepts and protect you from potential pitfalls.
6. Real estate laws, rules, regulations and contracts are complicated and always changing. Let us take care of everything for you.
7. When you find a property you’d like to buy, we will prepare a custom market evaluation so you will know the home's true market value and not overpay.
