Home Buyers, Do you Need Preapproval for a Loan? by Casey Serafino-Lee

So you are a homebuyer and you found that perfect home and are ready to make an offer on it.  There is one thing you absolutely must have in hand BEFORE you start looking.

Hey neighbors! I’m Casey Serafino-Lee, realtor to the Hayward Area, and I’m here to tell you why it is important to have a preapproval letter IN HAND before you start looking for your dream home.

First, you need to know how much you can afford before you even start shopping.  This is important because you don’t want to find that perfect home, make an offer on it, only to find out you can’t afford it. Having a preapproval letter allows you to search for home sin your price range.

Second, you find out if you are qualified for a mortgage.  This is especially important if you are self-employed or commission based.  Before you start to look for homes or make an offer make sure you can qualify for a loan and it will give YOU a stronger position when submitting an offer, ESPECIALLY when there are multiple offers.

Sellers want to know you can afford their home.  So having a preapproval letter with your offer shows you are a serious AND ready buyer.  As you can see, having a preapproval letter is important when looking for homes.  Don’t make the mistake other buyers have before.  Get that letter!  If you need a lender for a pre-approval, I can help with that!

Stay tuned as I bring you more house and community tips.  Don’t forget to like comment and share this video.

Will waiting to buy a home COST you more? by Casey Serafino-Lee

Were you thinking about selling and buying another house, or buying a house  for the first time and you said to yourself “I’ll hold off buying a home until next year.”

Hi, I’m Casey Serafino-Lee, Hayward Area Realtor and neighbor and I’m here to tell you that it is a pretty common tendency to hold off things on our to-do list, ESPECIALLY the ones that seem like a lot of work, like buying a house. But would you hold off the task if I told you that WAITING could make a difference of tens of THOUSANDS of dollars? Meaning it could cost you a $10,000-$50,000 (or more) difference to get the home you want today, in 2019’s market.

It’s anticipated, by the national historical trend report, that homes are on the rise by over 5% each year. That house you’ve been eyeing online, listed for $600,000, could be listed next year for $630,000. That is over $30,000 more just for waiting till 2019. This isn’t even bringing into question the rising ‼️ APR rates for mortgages, that can increase your monthly payment amount on a  home pretty significantly, as well.

I get it , the home buying process can seem pretty intimidating. But with an experienced agent on your side, it can actually go pretty smoothly. Let’s get in touch. It won’t hurt to connect you with a preferred lender  and run the numbers through to see what you qualify for.

The right time is always right now, I want to help you save the money  you deserve to keep, by avoiding the wait.
