As a first-time home buyer, you likely have many questions about the home buying process. We are here to assist you every step of the way, including addressing some of the common questions you may have.

One important question often asked is about the negotiability of the asking price for a home.

When it comes to the asking price of a home, it's important to know that it can be negotiable, but it depends on various factors. Sellers may be open to negotiations, especially if the property has been on the market for a while or if there are specific circumstances motivating the sale.

A real estate agent can play a vital role in the negotiation process.

It is important to understand the type of relationship you have with an agent. When an agent represents your interests in the home purchase journey, they will be able to help you assess the market conditions, comparable sales in the area, and possibly the seller's motivations to determine a reasonable offer. With the goal of helping you secure the best possible deal for you.

Remember that negotiation is a delicate process, and having a skilled agent by your side can make a significant difference in achieving a favorable outcome.

If you're considering starting the journey to homeownership or have more questions about negotiating the asking price, please don't hesitate to reach out. We’re here to provide you with expert negotiation strategies and personalized guidance to help you find your dream home at a price that suits your budget.

I also encourage you to visit our alignment method for buyers at for more information about how we can help you achieve the American Dream.

We understand that buying a home can be an overwhelming process, especially if you're a first-time buyer. In my last video I discussed how to determine how much home you can afford. Today, let's explore a critical topic for your home purchase journey: the difference between pre-qualification and pre-approval for a mortgage.

Pre-qualification and pre-approval are two distinct steps in the mortgage application process:

1. Pre-Qualification: Pre-qualification is an initial assessment based on information you provide to a lender or mortgage broker. It typically involves a conversation about your income, assets, debts, and credit score. While it's a helpful starting point to estimate how much you might be able to borrow, it's not a guarantee of a loan.

2. Pre-Approval: Pre-approval is a more rigorous process. You'll submit detailed financial documents, including bank statements, tax returns, and pay stubs, to a lender. They'll review your credit report and verify your financial information. Once approved, you'll receive a pre-approval letter specifying the loan amount you qualify for, helping you know your budget and making your offer more credible to sellers. Which can be instrumental for your success in today’s competitive market.

In summary, pre-qualification provides an estimate, while pre-approval is a more in-depth, verified assessment of your ability to secure a mortgage.

If you're ready to take the next steps in your home buying journey, whether it's getting pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage, please reach out to me. I'm here to guide you through the process, connect you with trusted mortgage professionals, and ensure you're well-prepared to find and secure your ideal home. Let's work together to make your homeownership dreams a reality.

At E Z Home Search Real Estate, we understand that as a first-time home buyer, you may have a lot of questions about the home buying process. Let us help you navigate this exciting journey. 

And one of the most crucial initial steps is determining how much you can afford for your new home.

When determining how much you can afford for a home, it's essential to consider your financial situation.

Start by reviewing your monthly income and expenses. A general rule of thumb is that your monthly housing costs (including mortgage, property taxes, and insurance) should be no more than 28% to 31% of your monthly gross income. However, if you meet credit score and reserve requirements, there are programs that allow to 45%.

Next, factor in your down payment. Traditional advice suggests putting down 20% of the home's purchase price, however saving as much as 20% can delay your homeownership. And as you are trying to save, the homes just keep appreciating! There's a chance that you won't be able to save enough just to stay ahead of that appreciation! Thank goodness there are options with lower down payment! Such as 3% to 5%. In addition, we have access to grant programs that can cover some, if not all, of your down payment and closing costs allowing the potential for 0 money down! Keep in mind that a smaller down payment may result in higher monthly mortgage payments and additional costs like private mortgage insurance (PMI).

Next, consider your credit score, as it influences the interest rate you'll receive on your mortgage. A higher credit score typically leads to better rates.

Lastly, remember to account for closing costs, which can range from 2% to 5% of the home's purchase price. Lenders do allow for seller concessions to cover some or all of your closing costs. This would need to be negotiated with the seller and incorporated into your agreement.

By understanding your financial situation, setting a budget, and getting pre-approved for a mortgage, you can determine a comfortable and realistic price range for your first home.

If you're ready to take the next steps in your home buying journey or have more questions, I invite you to get in touch with me or any of our Realtors®. We're here to provide you with personalized guidance and expert advice to make your dream of homeownership a reality.

Let's connect and embark on this exciting adventure together.

The Federal Reserve's rate hikes may not yet have had an impact on the RED-HOT Fall River Multi-Family home market. Where it is having an impact is transaction volume!

Even with mortgage rates more than double the lows of 2021, the lack of inventory continues to support home values.

Year over year median sales price for multifamily homes on Fall River MA is up over 16 percent from May 2022.

Median days on market is up slightly to 22 days. While the list to sales price ratio was down slightly but still at 100%.

The place where the recent interest rate hikes have had an impact is transaction volume.

Listing volume is down over 15%. Units that went pending was down over 33% and units sold was also down over 33%. And possible insight into things to come, pending sales are down almost 40%.

Fewer homes, and fewer buyers that qualify at today's current prices results in fewer transactions. Or course, all real estate is local, so let us know if you would like to know more about what is happening in your neighborhood and if you like these updates, please like and subscribe so you can stay in the know.
