Pre-Approve NOT Pre-Qualify!

Wed, Jan 18th 2023 10:20 am by David Shippey Buyer Tips

Pre-Approve NOT Pre-Qualify!

What is the difference between being pre-approved and pre-qualified? Quite a bit actually!

Pre-qualified means the lender checked your credit scores and asked how much income you make each year.

Pre-approved means the lender looked at your credit scores, pay stubs, funds available, bank statements, income tax returns, w2 or 1099, investments, debt/income ratio, and verified employment!

In short, being pre-approved ensures your approval for financing is strong and less likely to fall through before closing.

Not sure which lender to choose for the pre-approval process? Ask your Realtor! He/She will be happy to give you a recommendation.

Conduct a Self-Home Inspection!

Wed, Jan 11th 2023 9:42 am by David Shippey Seller Tips

Seller Tip: Conduct a Self-Home Inspection


Walk-through your house as if you are a potential buyer for the home! What did you like? What do you not like? What could be better?


Curb appeal is very important! Is the yard manicured? What's the first impression of the home?


Does everything work properly, or do you need to catch up on any deferred or minor repairs? Make a list of things as you go for easy follow up later.


Did today's tips spark a question? Think I might be the right Realtor for you? Give me a call so we can talk through your thoughts and concerns.

Find Your Realtor!

Wed, Dec 28th 2022 10:10 am by David Shippey Buyer Tips

Home Buyer's Tip: Find your Realtor!


If you are considering a home purchase, the very first thing you should do as a buyer is find the right Realtor for YOU. How do you do that? Ask family and friends about the Realtor they used. What did they like? What did they not like? How many years of experience does he/she have in real estate? How does his/her type of service match up to your lifestyle? Also, make sure to look at the Realtor's reviews from previous buyers. Look for common themes and get a feel for his/her work ethic. Every Realtor is a bit different from the next. Ultimately, find someone you can trust!
