Proper preparation can help eliminate most stressful situations.

There are many stages and procedures involved in a real estate transaction. Prior to viewing homes there are certain measurements that can be taken to make the transaction as stress free as possible.

This checklist should be used as a guide to make it easier to find the ideal Auburn property in the shortest amount of time while eliminating elements of surprise.

Choose an Auburn Realtor

Choosing a Realtor in Auburn that is knowledgeable about current market trends, one who can compare recent sales to Auburn properties of interest, is a good negotiator, listens to your objectives, is willing to answer questions and expresses an overall attentiveness in your best interest can be invaluable.

Requesting references from a Realtor can help you select the right one.


Learning how much you can afford and obtaining a monthly payment that is comfortable to you is another important first step. This can be accomplished by obtaining a pre-qualification letter from a mortgage lender. The lender can also provide other financial qualifications such as down payment requirements, necessary net worth requirements, mortgage insurance payments, interest rate options plus more.

Wish List

A written wish list that prioritizes desired property locations, features and amenities can be used as a check list when visiting numerous properties for sale. It can also be used to help communicate your perfect home requirements with your Realtor. While it may not be possible to get everything on your wish list, getting most might be considered a success.

Every home buyer has different situations and needs that are unique to their personal circumstances. Use these 3 steps as a guide to help eliminate unnecessary complications and enjoy a great experience to purchase your dream property in Auburn.
