Interest rates are on the rise, which adds a new twist to an already heated real estate market.
But the right real estate agent, real estate lawyer, mortgage professional, and insurance broker — you can find them in Bronx Times Home Pros — can help navigate the labyrinth of a real estate transaction. Here are some things you should know about the process:
You should speak to a mortgage broker as early as possible in the house-buying process. Before you start looking at properties, a mortgage lender will help determine what you can afford.
Real Estate Agent
When looking for a real estate agent, it’s smart to hire someone with experience in the neighborhood where your transaction is occurring. So if you’re buying, first decide where you want to live before you choose an agent.
Real Estate Attorney
The number one rule when hiring a real estate attorney: make sure they have experience in real estate. Don’t hire the lawyer-relative or friend who has no experience closing a real estate deal.
Mortgage lenders will require you to get home insurance coverage before they will agree to finance your home purchase, so it’s worth finding a broker that has experience.
Now there’s one place where you can find all of your real estate team members. The Bronx Times Home Pros directories are bursting with real estate agents, real estate lawyers, mortgage professionals and insurance brokers. Each listing includes project galleries, bio information, testimonials, and contact information so you can reach out to them directly.
