Buying a Townhouse
When buying a townhouse, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a townhouse. Locating the perfect townhouse is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a townhouse easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
Your First Step
Your first step to buying a townhouse is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a townhouse: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To move up to a bigger house?
Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area, neighborhood, community; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment.
Think about townhouse styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level townhouse, or are stairs acceptable? Do you want a newer townhouse, or maybe an older one with features that fit your lifestyle?
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or meeting with a mortgage specialist.
Call us and we will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for their clients.
