You have decided to buy a house, now what? The best place to start when thinking about purchasing a home is to contact a reputable lender who offers many options for loans. The reason for this is because many homes only qualify for certain loan types as well as it is important to find out what price range is best for you. Foreclosures, which can be a popular home buyer option many times need some type of work which means only a conventional or rehab loan would be allowable due to the loan guidelines. A conventional loan is much more lenient with repairs that are needed where as a loan such as FHA, Rural Development or VA are much stricter. Many items that FHA, Rural Development and VA flag are chipping paint, missing GFI outlets, cracked concrete, curling or missing shingles, rotting wood, and more. The type of loan that works best for you is the absolute first essential step in the home buying process whether you are a first time or experienced home buyer.

The holidays are over, and buyers are getting excited to be outdoors with the warmer weather. Generally, warmer weather not only makes buyers start looking at homes and be more active, but they also see the perfect opportunity to get settled into a new home before school starts again and the cold weather returns.
7 Things to focus on when getting your home ready for the spring market:
In my experience in Lapeer county real estate and surrounding counties, buyers focus on many things when viewing homes, but one stands out the most and that is cleanliness. If a home is outdated but clean, buyers will be more apt to show interest in it. If a home is outdated and dirty, buyers tend to sway away from those. To help my clients out, I have come up with a list of 7 important but inexpensive things to focus on when getting your home ready for the spring market. They are:
What I can do for you:
I have lived in Lapeer County my entire life and know the surrounding market very well. I have the knowledge to know where and how to advertise. I have been successful helping clients over the past few years and have sold 160+ homes since 2017.
The spring market is looking to be great once again due to the current lack of homes being listed for sale in the current market we are in. I provide my clients with professional photos of their home or property as well as aerial drone photography.
