There’s never been a better time than right now to buy a home in Aliso Viejo.
Thanks to low mortgage interest rates and increased home inventory you have more options to choose from as a home buyer.
In today’s post we will cover the top things that you need to know when choosing an Aliso Viejo Realtor to help you during your home search.
What Are Your Must Haves vs Should Haves?
Before starting your search for a home it’s important to know what are your must haves versus your should haves in the home that you are looking for.
For example: Must haves would include a home that’s 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a minimum of 1,200 square feet.
Your should have list would include things like a bonus room, open concept floor plan, granite counter tops or updated appliances in the kitchen.
Many times people make the mistake of wanting to have a home with their “should haves” when they should be looking for a home with their “must haves”. All of the additional things that you want in an Aliso Viejo home can be added later. Things you can’t change about a home are its location and its floor plan. Pick these two wisely and the rest can be changed to cater to your desired lifestyle.
Where to Look For a Realtor
Thanks to the Internet you can find a Realtor using your smart phone or tablet in just a few seconds.
When searching through Real Estate websites it’s important to search for someone who has lots of positive feedback online because reading feedback from past clients can save you the time, money and hassle of choosing a Real Estate agent who is not right for you.
Make Sure You Get Pre-Approved For a Mortgage Loan
Last of all, but most important, before hiring a Realtor to help you find the right Aliso Viejo home it’s important to get pre-approved for a mortgage loan.
Pre-approval means that you will know the price of a home that you can afford and this will help your Real Estate agent narrow down their home search for you.
