We are continuing our series of articles highlighting some of the steps in purchasing your first home. Our previous articles covered the importance of finding and engaging a trusted real estate agent, exploring first-time homebuyer programs with one of our Orlando listing agents/Tampa listing agents/South Florida listing agents, obtaining a mortgage pre-approval letter, and exploring different types of mortgage options. Here are more steps in the process of purchasing your first home.

Lock in a Mortgage Rate

Mortgage rates can be very volatile so when you make an offer on a property and apply for a loan, it is a good idea to lock in a mortgage rate when rates are low. This protects you in the event the rate increases during the time when you are waiting for your deal to be finalized.  Some mortgage providers even allow you to lock in a rate while you are in the process of shopping for a home. Your friends at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents can help guide you through this process.

Make an Offer

When you find a home you love, it is a good idea to make an offer ASAP. Homes on the market are selling fast, so if you see something you really want, you need to make a reasonable offer.  Your 1% real estate agent at One Percent Guys Full Service Real Estate Agents will provide direction on how to do this and be with you every step of the way.
