Spring is right around the corner, this Sunday, March 20th, to be exact. With spring comes baseball, spring rains, flower, even snow here in Denver, also it is time to do some home maintenance. I’m included some items that you may want to do, before time gets away from us.
“For the seller, they’re giving up their home where they have all of these attachments. For the buyer, it’s about painting a picture of their new lives and then carrying them through the whole process to a positive result.” – Sally Foster Jones, SFJ Group.
The song “Let it snow” has the words, “Oh the weather outside is frightful. And the fire is so delightful,” but buying or selling a home during the holidays can be a good idea.
Here are a few things to think, whether you’re a seller or a buyer, during this holiday season.

You’ve been online and driving around looking at home for months and you finally found the perfect house that you and your family can see living in and making memories.
You think your next step would be to contact a mortgage lender and make sure that you qualify for this house of your dreams and are comfortable with the mortgage payments.
Most times people jump to finding their dream house and worry about financing later. This could cause a problem for you in a hot real estate market where houses are staying on the market an average of seven days. You’ve spent valuable time and money which has now been wasted, especially when there is more than one offer for a home on the table.
When a seller is looking at all the offers submitted on their house, they are going to look at not only the price being offered, but is the buyer qualified for a loan. Have they talked with a lender, has the lender looked at their financials, tax returns, and credit score and verified funds? The seller wants to know that your offer on their house is going to close. Finding out what you qualify for before you find your perfect home is the first step to getting into your dream home.
To qualify for a home loan can take from 5-30 days, depending on how quickly you supply the documentation the lender needs, so all of the time you’ve put into finding your dream home has now been lost. So don’t lose your dream home, find out what you’re qualified for first.
For referrals for to great lenders contact me and I’d be happy to assist you.
Until next time!
Here are some highlights from November 2014 with regards to the 7 metro Denver Counties.
With the hot market here in Colorado, many buyers are finding themselves frustrated and may decided to wait until Spring 2015 to purchase. Yes, you could wait, could there be more homes on the market? Possibly, or inventory could continue to be low.
What about interest rates? Yes, they could go up. With regards to interest rates even half a percentage could significantly change the price of the home you are qualified for.
What about prices, I want a deal. Prices could go up, and that can reflect the price of a home you are qualified for and change your monthly payment. Even a $200.00 change in payment could make some buyers uncomfortable.
