Should I Rent or Buy? First Time Home Buyers – What To Expect As You Start Your Search!

Have you been thinking of switching from renting to buying but not able to fully commit? Unsure as to what you can afford? Not certain now is the right time? That is what we are here for!

If you are a first time home buyer the task of buying a home can be daunting. When you begin the sales process with our team we do a few things up front to get started.

  1. First we will ask you what you *think* you are looking for ranging from # of bedrooms, price, amenities, preferences, neighborhoods etc. We will set you up to receive MLS alerts for all properties that fit your search criteria. This is a great way to familiarize yourself with the market and to get out there and view properties in person! From there your agent will adjust your search to better fit your needs if necessary.
  2. Next your agent will walk you through what a *typical* timeline would look like if you were to buy a property. This will give you a better idea of the various steps that are involved in the home buying process and what can be expected. It will also be an indicator as to when you want to accelerate your search. Every sale is different so there are many factors that can change this but outlining the process helps people visualize what they are embarking on.
  3. If everything so far sounds manageable we will share what is required to actually submit an offer on a property. By being prepared with the items required to submit an offer it ensures you can hit the ground running and not miss out if you stumble upon your dream home early on. It also ensures we are ready to act in a super competitive market. This is where our knowledge and expertise comes in. We will work side by side to prepare a strong offer that we hope will make you stand out from the rest.
  4. Once you have decided you are ready to take the next step to home ownership we can share with you some great resources from attorneys, to mortgage lenders, and much more. If you don’t know where to start or don’t know what you can afford speaking with a mortgage lender is invaluable. They are the experts here! Leader Bank has been a great resource for our clients.

With current mortgage rates so low it is a great time to start this process for yourself.

Our team is here to walk you through every step of the way.

September 1, 2021 Rentals Have Arrived!

The Team at Presidential Properties has been working all winter to lease properties that did not rent for September 2020 or became available during the winter months for unforeseen reasons typically related to a change in the current tenants situation. This has kept us very busy during a season that is typically rather slow in terms of rentals.

We are so excited to say that we have began to receive apartments available for rent starting now through September 1, 2021! While we can’t predict the future we are hopeful our city with begin to see the return of normalcy and a stabilization in the rental market. With SO many apartments currently available and an array of different prices and incentives marketed all over the internet it is more important now than ever to have a Real Estate Agent working on your behalf. Our team is knowledgeable about the listings we have and we value the relationships we hold with landlords which helps us create an application and offer to present to the landlord on your behalf that is more likely to be accepted, therefore less time wasted.

We also want to take this opportunity to warn you about scams! There are many listings on the internet that have stolen photos and will collect a false application and even ask you to transfer money. If it seems to be to good to be true, then it just might be. Always google the company or agents name that is listing the property and verify the information is all correct. Another benefit of working with Presidential Properties is that we have been at our location at 17 Myrtle Street in Beacon Hill for 13+ years. You can google us, visit us, email us, call us, or DM us on social media. We are always available for you.
