A realtor can be a helpful resource for some when buying a home, but leaving this person out of the equation is a way to save some money and a headache.
With a mortgage pre-approval in hand, begin to look for homes on your own online or in local listings. Use these to hone in on a few options and contact the homeowners directly. Do research on what to look for and to make sense of an initial value.
Next, work with a real estate lawyer to create an initial offer and contract. This can be cheaper than hiring a realtor. Be sure to do your due diligence and stick with the Allconnect blog for more homeowner tips.
