Having an Illustrated Properties Agent when buying your property is like having a tour guide when traveling abroad somewhere you've never been. Your Illustrated Properties’ Agent condenses all the information about what there is to see, how to see it, and what to look for. You'll never get to see the best sights at the best times if you're just wondering around the city.
Our informed Illustrated Properties Agent will be able to give you valuable guidance on several influential pieces to consider before purchasing a property for sale. With an established network of knowledge and resources, the Illustrated Properties’ team can make sure you end up with a property that is right for you.
One of the biggest things to consider is how long you will be living in the given location. If you can't commit to staying in one location for a duration long enough to make the purchase and eventual sale of the property worth your while, then you might consider not buying at that point.
Another major factor is considering what you may or may not be able to afford. You must weigh all sides when proposing to buy a property. Is your job or income situation stable? Is it flat or growing? Do you have an expanding family whose expenses (and space demands) you need to account for? You might want a shorter commute into your job in the city, but you may need a bigger space for growing children or perhaps must travel further outside the metropolitan area to find the kind of space for your budget. Your Illustrated Properties Agent along with your Mortgage Representative, can also ask the appropriate questions to find out whether you are a good candidate for a loan.
Being able to provide proof of good credit can help enormously when purchasing a home. Pre-qualified buyers can make sound offers and move faster than someone who is less stable in their financial situation. Illustrated Properties Agents are trained to help you navigate this sometimes-intimidating world. Buyers with good credit do get better rates on their loans; however, it is a myth that buyers with bad credit history can't get financing. Illustrated Properties works with CreditUs to be able to help anyone with bad credit.
