• The first step is to decide WHY you want to buy. Identifying your WHY will help you and your Agent find the best property for your needs. Is it because you are sick of paying rent? Relocating? Need more space? Or are you looking to make a smart investment? This is a big decision and having an educated team of professionals in your corner as you take this first step will ensure your success.
• Begin to monitor your credit report and strengthen your credit score. There are many free tools to monitor your credit. Monitoring your full credit report will allow you to identify any inaccuracies, dispute incorrect claims, see how your habits effect your credit score, and improve your credit score prior to getting a mortgage.
• Make sure you have built a healthy savings or have created a plan to get you to that goal. You may also want to avoid making any large investments or switching careers. The goal is for your overall financial picture to look low risk to a mortgage lender.
• Choose a real estate agent. You may think that this person will just listen to what you are looking for, help you find properties to view, and negotiate/close the purchase but your agent should be doing so much more. Your agent can help educate you on what to expect, create a focused search, down payments, closing costs, attorneys, lenders, timelines, market trends and more.
• Get a mortgage pre-approval. Getting a pre-approval is essential to the home buying process as it gives you a clear indication of the price range and it is also a necessary document for when you submit an offer on a home. Your agent can provide you with a list of preferred lenders to get you started.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
