The National Association of Realtors says that the average search for a home takes around 12 weeks. From experience as a professional real estate broker, I know that many of my clients have been able to search for the perfect home using different techniques. Buying a home can be a very emotional experience, and can be overwhelming when looking at all the online options and prices. Get pre-qualified --that way you know what your limits are and how they fit with the goals of location, size, and price --and you reduce the chance that you will miss out on offering on a home while waiting to see if you can qualify to purchase a home. The tip is to decide on the location & size within your budget. If you are not sure about the neighborhood --drive by the home before scheduling a showing with your broker to avoid wasting time looking at homes in areas that you would not consider purchasing in. There is a benefit to working with a buyer's agent, even with all the online information available. A buyer's agent can help you narrow down your search and will have access to broker only information on the MLS that you would not otherwise see. A buyer's agent can show you any home listed on the MLS, works only for you, and normally there is no cost associated as the selling broker pays the buyer's agent.
