Time to Begin the Search
 
Once you have a core team consisting of a Real Estate agent and Mortgage Specialist, you can begin the search process. Teaming with your Real Estate agent at this point in the process is key in helping to streamline your search.  Discuss the characteristics of your real estate goals with your Real Estate agent. Together you can start broad and discuss all possible areas and neighborhoods and then hone in on those that interest you. Next, you can discuss style and condition of the ideal home. Throughout your search, keep in mind the potential long-term resale value of the properties you are considering.
