Take for example the #1 tip about the difference between pre approval and pre qualification.  When you are aware of the home price that you can afford, you can start looking right away for a house within your terms.  This saves you and your realtor time and allows your realtor to understand the range that you want to work in.


When first impressions influence your decision you may be walking into a money pit of a house without even knowing it.This also ties in with the home inspection.  When you understand completely what you are buying there are no surprises. 

Take the time to listen to your realtor and ask all the questions you need to understand your rights and obligations listed in the offer to purchase.  Before you sign the papers understand exactly what you are signing onto so that there are no surprises once you own the property. 

Negotiating the right price can be a bit of a dance. A llittle take and give is sometimes required.  When you negotiate on the asking price you can take advantage of investment deals as well as calculate the fair market value to determine if you are getting a fair price.
