Interested in buying a beautiful Contemporary Modern Home in Dallas? Before you can sign the closing documents and pick up the keys, there are a few steps you need to take first to get you on your way to owning the Dallas home of your dreams.
At Dallas Contemporary Homes, we want to help you make your home purchase easy and efficient. To start, we always recommend getting pre-approved for a loan. As long as your financial situation or credit score doesn’t change, your loan should be approved once you’re in escrow. Your lender will verify your employment, income, and credit in order to let you know how much you are pre-approved for. This also gives you an idea of your top-end budget. Knowing this number will allow you to set a comfortable budget for yourself and make sure you’re not wasting time seeing homes that are out of your price range.
We work with a fantastic lender over at LendFriend - click here to start the pre-approval process!
-Freeze Any Planned Big Purchases Until After Closing
A Contemporary Modern Home in Dallas is a big expense. Make sure you keep the home buying process smooth by freezing any other big purchases until after closing. A big purchase can negatively impact your credit score or even jeopardize your pre-approval. Hold off on buying things like cars, boats, RVs, top-of-the-line televisions, and furniture until after you’ve closed on your new home. When in doubt, just wait until after closing to make that purchase!
-Create a Wishlist of What You'd Like in Your Home
Knowing you want to buy a Contemporary Modern Home is a great first step, but Dallas homes offer a lot of variety. From location to neighborhood to amenities, creating a wishlist of must-haves and nice-to-haves before starting your home search is key. This will make it easy for us to show you houses that meet your requirements and keep you from seeing a bunch of homes you don’t like. We want to help you find the perfect home fast and drilling down to decide what you really want upfront will help us save you time and energy.
-Hire a Dallas Buyer's Agent
The Dallas housing market is unique. Working with a great Dallas Buyer’s Agent who knows the area and can help guide you to a great buying will save you time and ultimately, money. Many prospective buyers think they can handle buying a home on their own, but it doesn’t cost you anything to work with your own agent and you have someone who can advocate for you during negotiations.
