Obtain the Best Rates & Lowest Closing Costs
When you are ready to purchase a home, it makes sense to negotiate from the strongest position possible. In a strong real estate market, sellers can be more selective in the final buyer they choose to negotiate with. In such a crazed seller's market, it's not uncommon for a home seller to receive multiple offers on their property. With that said, there are certain things you can do to make certain that your offer is the one Seller goes with.
The vast majority of Purchaser's today go about the process entirely wrong, putting themselves at an overwhelming disadvantage!
Let's look at this from the Seller's perspective for a moment. If you were the Seller and had multiple offers on your property, all things being equal, would you accept the one with Certificate of Financing Approval or the one that was still Conditional on Financing? The answer is obvious. Why then, do so many buyers wait to start the financing until after they have found the home?
Even though most people will eventually be approved, having a Certificate of Financing Approval allows the Seller to accept your offer over other competing offers that still require financing approval.
If you're like most buyers, a home is the most expensive purchase you'll ever make, and you'll probably need some form of financing.
There are many lending institutions that offer a variety of mortgage products. Financing options and rates can vary widely, so it is important to do your research and shop around to ensure you get the mortgage that best meets your needs at the best price.
