Tanya Rankin video blogs about working with First Time Buyers and how they should go through the process of purchasing their first home.
Tanya Rankin: Hi it's Tanya Rankin in Williams Lake. This is for anybody that's a first time buyer and doesn't know how to begin the process. A lot of times I have a people contact me and they're ready to take that step and they saved up but they just really don't know where to begin. So just really quickly the first stage would be going get pre-approved whether it's at your bank or with a mortgage broker and make sure you give them as much accurate information as possible. Anything you have on your credit lines, credit cards all that information is really important so that you don't end up with a disappointment right at the final hour. Because lots of times people forget about that type of stuff when they're going from a pre-approval and then what I think is most important second step is pick a real estate professional or an agent that you truly trust and respect and you think that you will have a great working relationship with. I know that's hard because you haven't necessarily had an opportunity to meet everybody but I think if you take your time to just have a quick look at what your options are you can make a fairly informed decision and a lot of people think they have to call each individual agent. But if you pick one agent they will give you complete cover of the market and establish a great long term relationship and I think that's key to any successful relationship. If you have any questions send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I hope you have a fantastic week!
