Buying or Selling in the Seattle Area?

Buying a home in the Seattle area?

Buying your home is exciting! It makes your heart beat faster. There are many things to consider:

  • What can you afford?
  • Neighborhoods, schools, taxes, and commutes.
  • Condo or house? -- 2nd Home? -- Vacation Home?
  • Investment Property
  • Downsizing
  • Upsizing?

If you are a first time home buyer, there are additional considerations. For example, what about the “Bank of Mom and Dad”?

Our discussion will include things like:

  • Checking your credit score/rating and if possible, correct any errors
  • Making a budget you are comfortable with and decide how much you can afford to pay for the purchase of a home ( including down payment and monthly payment)
  • Finding a loan program that meets your needs and get pre-qualified (preferably pre-approved)
  • Determining important features that you will need or want your new home to have

Selling a home in the Seattle area?

Trading up to the house.
Now you have some equity and you're making more money. Is it time to take the next step? Time to get the house you like in the neighborhood you want? Need more space / less space? New kid?

Trading up can be easier because you have more cash to work with. But it can be more complex because there are two transactions to work with and one usually needs to occur first.
