Are you looking to purchase a home in the Lewisville, Flower Mound, Highland Village, Corinth, Frisco or Surrounding Areas? My name is Austin Holtzman and I am a Remax Realtor and I look forward to helping you buy that home. Customer service is what I am all about and real estate is my passion.
Whether it your first home or your fourth, the decision to purchase a home is one of the biggest and best choices you could ever make. Although the home buying process may be emotional, it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. If you are just starting to consider purchasing a home follow the 8 steps to buying a home as it is an easy step by step process to have you in your new home home quickly.
It’s important to get pre-approved to know how much you can afford, but what does the bank think? It may be willing to lend you an amount that could get you into trouble financially; on the other hand, it may not be willing to lend you as much as you would like. The reason you need to know what the bank will let you borrow before you start shopping for a house is that you don’t want to think you can afford a $350,000 house, start looking, and then find out that you can only get a loan for $250,000. The features that come with the $350,000 house won’t exist in the $250,000 house and you’ll be setting yourself up for disappointment.
A seller isn’t likely to accept an offer from a buyer who hasn’t already secured financing. Why should they waste valuable days taking their home off the market while waiting to see if you can get a loan? Getting pre-approved is pretty easy. It’s just a matter of calling a lender and giving them about 20 minutes worth of personal and financial information, then following up with supporting documentation and waiting for a decision from an underwriter.
Lastly, please feel free to use the interactive map down below to see all of the current home listings on the MLS. But also please know that not every home is listed on the MLS. Being a realtor, I am heavily involved in the real estate market and often come across homes being sold BEFORE they hit the actual market. Having this knowledge and being able to pass it off to you, puts us in the drivers seat when finding you the perfect home.
