This is just a general list to help really anyone interested in buying a home.
Closing costs - they can be costly due to money needed for pre-paids (insurance and taxes), title company fees, loan origination fees, and attorney costs. You are able to get the preliminary numbers from your mortgage loan originator, you just need to give them the purchase price, the loan amount, and the parish the home is in.
Down payment - not all homes qualify for 100% financing
Improve credit score
Pull your credit report at AnnualCreditReport.com and make sure all entries on your report are correct
Stay current on your bills
Don't open new accounts
Don't cancel credit cards, but by all means pay them down
Higher credit score equals a lower interest rate
Get mortgage pre-approval
I have recommendations of the best in the business, no matter what your current situation is
Choose me as your REALTOR
I work 7 days a week and I am so excited to find your next home
I also look forward to working with my team to market your home to get it sold quickly at top dollar
We will have a consultation to share with me your "must haves" and "must have nots"
Consider resale value
Ride around at different times of day to gauge traffic, noise, etc.
Make an offer
The listing agent and the buying agent will negotiate the best deal for our clients
Schedule home inspection
This is just good practice for peace of mind
Final walk through
Close the deal and move in!

"Lizzie Blair went above and beyond what we ever expected! She regularly called to keep us informed with every step of the selling process. She listened to every question and concern, and always returned phone calls timely. Our home was on market just a few days before our first showing. We sold our house faster than we ever imagined. Lizzie made the closing process quick and painless. We would recommend her to our friends, and use her again should the opportunity arise. Very detailed, very thorough, very complete, and a very fine job done!"
