Are you looking to purchase a home? Are you overwhelmed thinking about the  process? Don't be! I've broken down the home buying process into seven easy steps to help you know what will be happening every step of the way. 1. Initial Consultation Sit down and share with your licensee what you're looking for in a home. Phone your licensee's preferred Lender to determine budget, at no cost or obligation to you. 2. Pre-qualification Most Sellers request a Pre-Qualification Letter to be submitted with an offer. Pre-qualification means the lender has reviewed and approved your credit, income, and asset documentation for financing within a given price range. 3. Searching for Your New Home Your licensee supplies a list of available homes within your parameters. Drive by those homes at your leisu...

Becoming a"Dual Agent" in two different States   How many people reading this post have a license to sell Real Estate in two different States? And if you are licensed in two States, what are the pros & cons?   I have posted blogs for the last couple years on possibly getting licensed in California & Alaska, but I am about to take this a step further.   Because I have family up in Alaska now, a door has been opened which in turn gives me so much more opportunity of becoming licensed in the state of Alaska.   So that being said, I will be contacting the the Real Estate Division in Alaska and requesting the information on obtaining the book that covers the state exam for Alaska.   I have promised a person that I would spend the next 3-4 weeks studying the state book and to take the state t...

Millennial Buyers: What they look for when buying a home According to Investopedia.com, millennial means “a name given to the generation born between 1980 and 2000 (also called Generation Y, following Generation X).

As the great Andy Williams would sing, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” Christmas, is without a doubt the wonderful, cheerful and busiest time of all.
