Time-Saving Tips Guaranteed to Make Home Buying Easier

When buying a home, most of us are so focused on saving big bucks that we often forget there’s another important element well worth saving – time. The sad fact is, far too many house hunters waste hours and hours in their well-intentioned searches for the ideal residence. No, they don’t have too many spare minutes on their hands. Rather, they simply aren’t aware there’s a better and more efficient way to go about it. The better way consists of 5 simple steps guaranteed to dramatically reduce time-waste and make home hunting a much more delightful experience. Please keep in mind that the steps work best when taken in the following order:

  1. Talk to your friendly lender to see what you’re pre-qualified for. Unless you’d rather squander tons of time looking at properties that will get you a big NO from the bank.
  2. Save precious gas and hours by conducting online searches in your chosen cities and price range. To bolster this process, make certain you get daily email updates of new properties hitting the market.
  3. Once you narrow your prospects to a chosen few properties, motor over to the community with your agent and make sure the locale is to your liking.
  4. Choose your top 2 communities. Time goes a lot further when you narrow your focus to a few select locales. Wandering indecisively is a major time gobbler.
  5. Purchase the property that comes up next in your preferred community. There’s no need to wait any longer, is there? Never let a great opportunity slip away.

Follow these five steps when buying a home in Orange County, and you’re sure to minimize your search time considerably. If you’d like to learn more, I’m ready to help. Just contact me at 949.338.7408 or angie@askangie.com. Or follow me @AngieWeeks or @WeeksTeam.
