Tips & Insights
Real Estate Tip for Buyers:
Get pre-approved for a mortgage at the start of your home search. This crucial step ensures you're looking at properties within your budget, saving you time and preventing frustration. By knowing your price range from the beginning, you can focus on homes you can afford, avoiding the disappointment of falling in love with properties outside your financial reach. Pre-approval also strengthens your position as a serious buyer when you make an offer.
Home Maintenance Tip:
Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors monthly. Ensuring these devices are working properly can save lives in the event of a fire or gas leak. Replace the batteries at least once a year and replace the units themselves every 7-10 years. Regular testing and maintenance provide peace of mind and keep your home and family safe.
