FINANCING
Key to Affordability

Finding the right home financing is as important as finding the right house. Discovering your true “Home Buying Power” and the best financing method is the first step to a successful house purchase!

It is critical for house buyers to know before they start their Tampa Bay home search exactly what they can afford, the type of financing they will use and the “out of pocket expenses” they might incur.


Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group's local mortgage consultant will be happy to assist. A professional who doesn’t use a “cookie cutter” approach, but individually counsels the home buyer through the financing maze so they have all the answers to make good financial decisions.

THE MORTGAGE CONSULTANT WILL:

•    Qualify and Calculate their “Buying Power” - (what they can and can’t afford).

•    Educate about Financing Methods and Options - Explain the “pro & cons” of each.

•    Identify Out of Pocket Expenses - So they can plan and there are no surprises!

•    Provide Written Mortgage Pre-Approval - Strength when competing & negotiating.


WHAT
THIS MEANS is securing the best method of home financing and being ready to take action when the time is RIGHT!

There is a lot more to finding the ideal Tampa, Clearwater home than just surfing the internet, looking at ads, driving through neighborhoods, visiting open houses and using the traditional MLS.

STEP 3 TO A SUCCESSFUL TAMPA BAY, CLEARWATER FLORIDA HOME PURCHASE

BEST PRICE
Buy Smart

The best purchase price is not always the lowest price! 

Determining the best home purchase price can be a real balancing act and is trickier than it appears!

The best purchase price is the price that secures the property. Many times the lowest price may alienate the home seller. Other times, because of competition, the best purchase price is above the asking price. The key is to find the right price, between never over- paying or losing by under-paying.


THE WAY BERKSHIRE HATHAWAY HOMES SERVICES FLORIDA PROPERTIES DOES THIS IS:

  • Educate the buyer on the “Market Trend” (Buyer’s Market/Seller’s Market) and explaining how it will impact their house pricing position when formulating an offer to purchase.
  • Provide a “Real Estate Home Market Study” on the property of interest to educate them on the neighborhood history and price comparisons.
  • Uncovering the Buyer’s “Competitive” Position.
  • Strategically constructing the purchase offer by balancing price with “fair Market Value ”


WHAT THIS MEANS IS
 ... BEST PURCHASE PRICE!
