The real estate market is about the only thing heating up in the mountains so far this year!
If you’re considering property in the mountains of SW Virginia or NW North Carolina, you need to prepare BEFORE you take the time to look. You don’t want to miss an opportunity because you talked to your banker, but didn’t pursue a pre-approval letter. It can be the deciding factor in whether your offer is considered & accepted before another one comes in! Review this list & prepare before you look at properties. It’s really hard to follow the one that got away!
- Contact your banker, possibly one other lender & discuss your plans.
- Request a pre-approval letter or at least a pre-qualification letter. A pre-approval letter is stronger than a pre-qualification letter & will mean more when negotiating.
- Have a family conversation about your wants & needs & the amount you’re willing & comfortable spending to check all the boxes on that list.
- Find a local Realtor in the area you want to buy in. LOCAL KNOWLEDGE will save you time, trouble & money! Once you establish a good relationship with an agent they can guide you to the properties that meet your wants & needs, then through the process to a successful closing.
Call me anytime. I would love the opportunity to be the agent that helps you in SW Virginia or NW North Carolina. Come see me in the mountains…it’s a REALLY cool place to be!
