What You Can Do to Keep Your Dream of Homeownership Moving Forward

While the coronavirus may have many of us sidelined from our usual activities, you don't have to press pause on your real estate plans just because you're staying home. Here are four things you can do right now to keep your home search on track, so you're ready to go when this health crisis subsides.

1. Get Pre-Approved

Pre-approval for a mortgage will give you a better understanding of what you can afford, and it shows you're a serious buyer. Gather the necessary documents like your income verification, credit history, and asset documentation while you're spending some time at home and reach out to a lender for assistance.

2. Virtually Connect with an Agent

Today, more than ever, it's important to start working with a trusted real estate advisor, so you're ready to move quickly when it's time. Whether you chat by phone or video, a real estate professional can help you understand how to navigate the changing dynamics of today's market without bringing your plans to a standstill.

3. Do Your Research

This is a great time to investigate down payment assistance programs in your area, especially if you think you might benefit from a low down payment option when you make your home purchase.

4. View Listings Online

You may not be able to check out homes for sale in person right now, but you can still look online for what's available in your area. Use virtual tours and listings to take note of your favorite must-haves and nice-to-haves in a potential home. 

Don't put your dreams on hold. This may still be your year to buy a home, and The Barrett Group is here to help you through the journey.
