National Real Estate Review Board

Get pre-approved

After determining what you can afford and reviewing your credit you will want to contact your local bank or mortgage company to get pre-approved for your loan before you start looking for a house. Among the items you should have: Good credit, stable employment history, a positive debt-to-income ratio and document of your assets.

Choose a recommended real estate agent BEFORE you start

Choosing a good Realtor
  • Ensure you are working with a leading, customer oriented local Real Estate Agent.
  • With your agent, make a list of what features you are looking for in a home.
    Your Agent will find properties available in your desired location.
  • Your Agent will preview available homes to weed out those that are overpriced, or undesirable in some other way.
  • Your Real Estate Agent will present the homes that best suit your wants & needs.
  • Your Agent will help determine the difference between a “good buy” and a property which, because of its nature (neighborhood, market appeal, etc.), might have to be discounted if you decide to sell in the future.
  • Your Real Estate Agent will negotiate the best deal for you.
