After you have been pre-approved, it is time to go house hunting Searching for a home is all about knowing what's important to you. Before diving into the home search create a list of must-have home features you want and use these as the foundation for your home search. We recommend you begin your search online where you can view a large number of properties using customization tools that limit your results to homes with these features. At Altman, we have an extensive database of properties which can be viewed at altman.realestate.
Make a shortlist of properties that interest you the most and have your real estate agent make appointments for you to visit them together. Be sure to ask your real estate agent about the resale value of the properties you are considering. In viewing a home, your Altman agent will help you notice details that you might overlook, provide expert analysis, and can also act as an unbiased advisor.
Once you have found the home you'd like to buy consult with your real estate agent so that you can make a reasonable offer that the seller is likely to accept. If the offer is accepted, you will require a registered attorney to search the register and establish the title of the property. The contract will be prepared by the seller's attorney, which provides for a deposit to be made securing the property
