Not getting pre-approved. Buyers make the mistake of looking at homes before getting pre-approved for a mortgage. The last thing you want to do is fall in love with a home and not be ready to make an offer. Sellers want buyers that are serious, prepared, and organized.
Not making your first offer your best offer. You’ll be faced with the urge to offer below asking price. However, in a seller’s market where competition is fierce, you risk missing out on your ideal home when you don’t present your best offer first. Sometimes you only get one shot. Make your first offer a good and strong.
Not committing to a real estate agent. If you’re not willing to commit to an agent, you can’t expect that agent to commit to work for you. Once you make a commitment, that agent becomes your advocate, fighting for your best interests.
