Free Advice On Buying A House In Baton Rouge
1. Browse the Internet, look at websites, and get a feel of what the market is and what's for sale, how much and where.
2. Contact a Lender for a Mortgage Loan, first check the ads, talk to friends, ask about experiences, check the interest rates so you don't walk in there dumb and wind up paying too much interest.
3. Find a Realtor, most studies show unsuspecting FSBO buyers wind up paying more than folks using Realtors, so look for a Realtor with at least five years experience. After five years a Realtor has seen pretty much everything, good and bad. A Realtor can make you or break you.
4. Tell the Realtor where you are interested in living, and how much the Lender told you that you can afford, and start looking at homes. Let the Realtor counsel you on any offer you make on a house. She's done it long enough to know what's a good offer and what's not.
5. When, and if, the offer is accepted, let the Realtor guide you through the inspection, the appraisal, and a Title Company that will give you fair closing costs on the sale.
Trust the Realtor, she knows, and don't be afraid to ask any questions about the entire process. We have been through this process hundreds of times. We've seen all kinds of buyers and sellers. And don't get riled up when things don't go that smoothly. But don't worry, most times things do go smoothly.
