When many people begin their search for a new home, they start looking around on the Web to see the market is like. They start researching neighborhoods, schools, crime, etc. That part comes relatively easy. The tougher part is getting the process started.
Okay, so you've got an idea of where you want to go and you've made a cursory review of the affordability of the area or areas. What next?
- Call Milwaukee Executive Realty
It is okay to contact Milwaukee Executive Realty very early in the process because one of our agents can get you set up on an automated email search program which can help you keep your thumb on the pulse of the market. This can help you become a more savvy buyer. One of our agents can put your search criteria in the system which will then email you whenever something that matches your parameter comes on the market.
- Envision the Ideal Home
When you speak with one of our agents, you can also discuss what lifestyle features are important. You will find happiness by living in a home that accommodates your lifestyle. If it is too small, too large, has a lot that is too big, has a lot that is too small, or doesn't have the special room that you need for an office, man cave, rec room or whatever else, chances are that you will experience some remorse down the road. Our agents have access to a tool set can try to pinpoint the right property prospects.
- Talk to a Lender (if Applicable)
Even though you've got an idea of how much you want to spend, if you plan to get a mortgage it is important to get pre-approved. We have lender contacts that we are proud to share with our clients and customers. Getting pre-approved early in the process is important because a lender can give you a definitive price range. This way you do not waste your time looking at properties that the bank won't finance for you. This process can happen concurrently while you have your discussions with one of our agents.
- Monitor Market/Properties
Besides the automated email system we can give you access to an online portal with live MLS data. This system gives you the freshest data and enables you to monitor properties. So, in essence, it can serve as a digital notebook.
