are ready to purchase a home, it makes sense to negotiate from the strongest position possible. In a strong real estate market,
sellers can be more selective in the final buyer they choose to negotiate with. In such a crazed seller's market, it's not
uncommon for a home seller to receive multiple offers on their property. With that said; there are certain things you can
do to make certain that your offer is the one the Seller chooses.
The vast majority of Purchaser's today go about the
process entirely wrong, putting themselves at an overwhelming disadvantage!
Let's look at this from the Sellers perspective for
a moment. If you were the Seller and had multiple offers on your property, all things being equal, would you accept the one
with Certificate of Financing Approval or the one that was still conditional on Financing? The answer is obvious. Why then,
do so many buyers wait to start the financing until after they have found the home?
What I have found is that those buyers are usually very
good, qualified buyers and are not worried about getting approved. Even though they usually are correct and will ultimately
be Approved, the Seller in most cases has no guarantees.
Lastly, from a cost savings perspective...
As a prospective purchaser, it makes all the more sense
to start the financing early on so you can get a firm handle on your interest rate and estimate of points and closing costs.
If you do this before finding a home, you are not under any time constraints and are less likely to over pay like a buyer
who has found a home and is under strict time constraints.
