Three Tips for Buying a House in 2022

If you plan on buying a house in 2022, here is how to make the most out of your search!

Use a local real estate agent. In a tight housing market, it is important to use an agent who knows the area well and can give you a realistic picture of what you can expect to pay for the home you want. 

Prioritize carefully. Every homebuyer has a wish list of features they would love to have in their new home and neighborhood. But, when supply is limited, absolute must-haves need to be chosen carefully. Narrow your list as much as possible before beginning your search, as it will help you to avoid disappointment later on. 

Get pre-approved. It is always a good idea to get preapproved for a mortgage before you start your search. It is even more important in a sizzling real estate market like the one buyers are facing today. A preapproval gives you a leg up on bidding wars, shows potential sellers that you are serious about buying and helps you keep your search within parameters you can afford.
