Before You Get Started
One very important consideration is to ensure you that you have a competent group of professionals working for you. This includes mortgage brokers and bankers, realtors, lawyers, appraisers, inspectors, insurance agents and several other potential services. Each individual on your team plays a key role in the purchase of your home – and if everyone works together, it will create a seamless process that is exciting and enjoyable.
As such, we suggest that you consider the following questions and apply them to your search when building your team, including your choice for mortgage broker.
Remember: the most important person in this process is you, the purchaser, so it’s important to select people that are a good fit.
Key Questions for Potential Team Members:
- How long has the individual been in the business?
- How much volume do they do annually?
- Is their website easy to understand?
- Are they able to answer your questions?
- Are they up to date with industry trends and regulations?
- Do they have online reviews?
