Loan Pre-Approval Timing - Wright-Patt Realty

If you're getting ready to become a homeowner, you've probably already discovered that there are a lot of important steps along the way. Getting pre-approval for a home loan is one of the most important steps, and if you're thinking about buying a home in 2020, our REALTORS® are here to help. 

One of the most common questions we get asked is, "When should I get pre-approved?" There are a few factors to consider when answering that question, but one thing is for sure: Before you start looking at Beavercreek homes for sale, it's important to have a pre-approval letter in hand. 

What is Pre-Approval?

Pre-approval is an important step before buying a home because it essentially proves that you have the financial means to do so. When you obtain pre-approval it says to homebuyers that you're ready and able to buy. It also lets you know just how much home you can afford, which makes it easier to find the right house for you.

Holiday Home Sale - Wright-Patt Realty

Does conventional wisdom about slow home sales during the winter holidays make you fearful of putting your house on the market? Over the 12-month period from September 2018 through August 2019, 20 percent of home sale closings occurred between December and February.

What the winter buyer pool lacks in quantity, it makes up for in motivation. Make the holidays merry and bright with these helpful tips for marketing Beavercreek homes for sale.

  1. Post Video Tours and High-Quality Photos
    When temperatures are low, people are less likely to spend a weekend touring homes and more likely to turn to online listings. An enticing video tour and beautiful photos designed to highlight your home's best features will create a desire to see it in person. It's generally worth the investment to hire a professional. If possible, use exterior photos taken in spring or summer.
