Ready to take the plunge and find your ideal Lowcountry abode? TSG’s Dan and Sherry Swift offer these essential pointers for buyers:
Get Pre-Approved for Financing – Knowing your spending limits upfront saves time and lets you focus your search on the right homes. If you do not have a preferred lender don’t worry we have connections with the right local lenders with the right programs to make your dream home a reality.
Research top neighborhoods – Drive around and take notes on amenities like schools, parks and commute times to match your needs. Also get a feel for the area and decide if it feels like where you want to call home.
Narrow Your Must-Haves – Create a wish list factoring location, square footage, yard size and more to target the right properties efficiently.
Tour Endlessly – Schedule appointments on multiple listings to compare features and neighborhood vibes before settling on “the one.”
Make a Strong First Offer – you want to be pre-approved for your loan and have as few contingencies as possible to get the best deal.
Move Quickly on New Listings – Hot properties attract multiple bids within days, so be ready to act without hesitation on a dream home once you know exactly what that is.
Trust Your Realtor’s Expertise – Let Dan and Sherry’s local expertise and negotiating skills work on your behalf every step of the way for a smooth, successful closing experience.
