#3 Now that you have been pre-approved you know your price range and the max $$ you are comfortable spending. It's time to start looking at homes that meet your criteria. I know you're thinking, "I know my criteria and exactly what I want", that's great but you will still need sit down with your REALTOR. They will dig deep and ask thought provoking questions. This is called a buyer's consultation. We show homes every day and see what buyer's forget they need or what's important. Let us walk you through it and help you remember. We will put you on an alert in MLS so that as soon as listings come on the market you will know! Feel free to search online as well, just remember when looking online, a lot are not current and may have misleading information. When you are looking and see something that interests you, LET YOUR REALTOR KNOW and he/she will validate that information for you. Don't forget, when looking online and see a FSBO, don't call them! Call your REALTOR and let them handle scheduling appt. Its a lot of fun checking out all the homes on the internet. Your REALTOR will be actively looking for homes that meet your criteria as well. Beware, it's easy to get caught up in the search that you veer from your initial needs and wants. Should this happen your REALTOR will need for you all to meet again and revisit your criteria. Happy searching! Til next week... The field trip!

"In March of 2016 I ran across this condo for sale and it seemed like a great deal, I had to see what the place looked like inside. The same day I called Donnice she was able to show me the property. Once inside I fell in love with it, my husband and I were first time buyers and we had no idea about the world of reality or buying. Donnice was such a joy to work with she helped us with the buying process and made the experience rather pleasant than a headache. Her deposition was friendly yet professional, when we needed to ask a question or needed her advise she was always a phone call away. During this time Donnice had to have knee surgery and yet she was still available and willing to work with us to buy this home! My family and I were grateful to have worked with a lovely realtor in the process of purchasing our first home, I would highly recommend Mrs. Donnice! Thank you for everything you did for our family!
