Wasilla Real Estate - Palmer Real Estate Wants Vs. Needs
Before looking at homes you must...
1. Contact a lender (if you don't know one, we can recommend three terrific lenders: see the mortgage information section). Find out from your lender how much you can qualify for to purchase a home. You can always choose to spend less than you are qualified for. It is very easy to become excited about features found in homes out of your range, so finding out how much you qualify for in advance will help you select homes in a price range that you are comfortable with. Please see our section on the loan process for additional information on obtaining a loan.
2. Complete a list of what you need and want in a new home. Decide what features are must haves (location, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, garage, etc.) and which features are wants (fireplace, den, spa, split floorplan, etc.). When you meet with The Kristan Cole Team, we will talk with you regarding the features you are looking for in a home. CLICK HERE to download a list to use as a point of reference for your meeting with us. People often change their minds regarding what they are searching for. Please make sure to let The Kristan Cole Team know if any of your parameters have changed during the searching process. That way we can better serve you and help you find your dream home.
