Why It’s A Good Idea To Get Pre-­Approved Before Looking At Nashville Homes For Sale

If you are looking for a home in Nashville, securing a pre-approved home loan before you begin your search is a great idea. It can speed the buying process and help you avoid stress along the way. It can also give you a better chance of getting the home you want, particularly in a competitive housing market.

Know How Much You Have Available to Spend Before You Shop for a Nashville Home

One of the benefits of securing a pre-approval for a home loan before you start to look for a home in Nashville is that you have a set budget. Because you know how much you have to spend, you can focus on homes within your price range. Buyers who choose to shop without first obtaining a pre-approval letter often search for homes priced above or below their means.

No Need to Worry About Getting Turned Down for a Home Loan

Another advantage of obtaining a pre-approved home loan is that you don’t need to worry about being turned down for credit. While getting a pre-approval letter is not a guarantee that you will get a particular home, it does mean you can shop without worrying about whether or not you qualify for a home in your price range.

Pre-Approved Buyers Are More Likely to Be Accepted by Sellers

Consumers who are not pre-approved for a home loan risk rejection from sellers. Even if you find the ideal home and can qualify for it, you may be competing with shoppers who have a pre-approval letter. If there is more than one offer on the home of your dreams, a seller is more likely to accept an offer from a pre-approved buyer.

Find out more about getting pre-approved for a home loan by calling The Lipman Group at 615.463.3333.

5 Tips For Choosing The Perfect Belle Meade Real Estate Agent

Belle Meade is one of the most sought-after communities in Tennessee, which means the real estate market can be pretty competitive. That is why it is best, when searching for a home, to work with a trusted Belle Meade real estate agent. So, how do you choose an agent to fit your needs? Start by following these five tips:

Real Estate Agent Showing Home To Client

  1. Start with referrals.

    The best way to begin your search for a great Belle Meade real estate agent is to ask the people you trust who they recommend. If you have family, friends or coworkers who have bought or sold a home in the city over the last couple of years, ask them who they worked with and whether or not they would recommend the agent.

  2. Choose someone who knows the area.

    If you are buying a house in Belle Meade, you do not want to work with an agent who specializes in Franklin or Downtown Nashville. Find how many Belle Meade homes the agent has sold throughout the last few years. Ideally, he or she should easily answer your questions about schools, taxes, commutes, safety and what all there is to do nearby.

  3. Visit open houses.

    Keep an eye out for open houses in Belle Meade, even if they take place in homes that do not interest you. This way you can go inside and observe the agent in action without making any kind of commitment. Does he or she seem like someone that would be a good fit for you? If so, approach them about helping you find a home.

  4. Avoid anyone who sounds too good to be true.

  5. If you talk to a real estate agent who makes outrageous promises, consider it a red flag. Above all, an agent should be honest and feel like a part of your team. Sit down together and discuss your expectations. Talk about realistic budgets, lines of communication and what you are looking for in a home. Make sure both of you are on the same page before beginning your search.
  6. Pay attention to chemistry.

    When you buy a house in any city, you spend plenty of time with your agent. In most cases, he or she will walk you through the entire process, from the time you start your search until the moment you have the keys to the front door in your hands. It can also be a very personal and emotional process. If you set up an interview or talk with an agent and you just do not get a good vibe, it is probably best to work with someone else.

Another great way to find the perfect Belle Meade real estate agent is to contact the professionals at The Lipmann Group today at 615.463.3333.
