Pat Settar’s Real Estate Report

Four Strategies to Reduce Homebuying Stress!

Buying a home can be stressful (especially in a hot market).

But you’re in luck – there are ways to combat any worries you have and make homebuying a more enjoyable journey.

Are you getting ready to purchase a home? Want to ease the stress of it all? Here are four strategies that could help.

Prep your finances early & have a realistic budget.

Having your finances in order can help make the process significantly smoother. There are many easy ways to get your credit up and once you’re qualified by the right lender, you’ll learn what programs you are eligible for. There are also grants for first time home buyers, no-money-down programs, and 203k loans that provide the funds for renovations.

Communicate openly about what you want.

Knowing your needs and deal breakers — and communicating them early on — is critical to a hassle-free process. We’ll go over your budget, home purchase goals and any questions and concerns you might have along the way.

Delegate where possible.

You don’t have to do everything on your own; in fact, that could make the process more stressful. Instead, rely on the experts — your loan officer, home inspector and other pros involved in the process. Lean on us for help and support, and don’t feel like it all rests on your shoulders.

Keep the big picture in mind & stay flexible.

There may be hiccups along the way but having an experienced caring realtor will help resolve any issues that arise.

Get in touch so you can have an experienced real estate agent by your side and reduce your homebuying stress considerably.
