Get Pre-Approved

Are you planning to purchase a home this year? One of the first steps to consider is getting pre-approved for a mortgage. Our team at Favor Realty Group recommends you take the time to get pre-approved, as it’s an essential part of the home buying process. By getting pre-approved, you’ll be able to understand your true price range and how much money you can borrow. This information can make it easier for you to search for homes, especially in a higher mortgage rate environment. At Favor Realty Group, we have trusted lending partners that can help you get pre-approved quickly and efficiently.

Expand Your Search Area & Criteria

If you’ve been searching for a home in a specific area or the city center that is starting to feel out of your price range, you may want to expand your search area or re-prioritize your wish list. Our team can help you identify alternative neighborhoods or towns that could be more affordable and meet your needs. According to CNET:

“Area growth is likely to keep pace with the market, which means that the outskirts of town might be hopping within five years. Consider stepping out of your ideal location by searching in the nearby cities. You may find better prices and more square footage.”

At Favor Realty Group, we have a deep understanding of the local real estate market and can provide you with valuable insights on areas you may not have considered.
