Imagine waking up on Christmas morning surrounded by family, food and of course lots of presents in your new home. Did you know you can make that happen even if you are relocating due to the economy, job placement, or other life change?
While there are many steps to purchasing a home the transition time can be shortened by taking a few extra steps now. The average time to get an offer accepted and close on the sale is usually four to six weeks. Generally the time spent looking for your new home is more than it takes to purchase it.
So it seems to reason that house hunting is where to begin. Look in newspapers, on websites, always keeping an eye out in the location you are interested in. There are mixed opinions on getting pre-qualified. This does shorten some of your closing time but the hang up is, without a Realtor you may not be getting the best deal or the -best for you- mortgage company.
