Step One in Buying a Home is talking to a mortgage professional and obtaining a solid mortgage preapproval.  Without knowing how much you can afford, the school district, number of bedrooms and the rest of the items on the wish list are irrelevant.  First and foremost, no one should be buying a home that he or she cannot afford or for which they cannot obtain a mortgage commitment. Secondly, no Seller will entertain an offer from any buyer who does not have a solid mortgage preapproval. And, I'm not talking about a generic mortgage preapproval from any lender.  Some lending institutions will issue a preapproval that is not worth much more than the paper it is printed on.  If in the end, if the borrower is not going to be approved for the mortgage, then the preapproval is worthless.  A g...

Even in this market, buyers may need to compromise. Most buyers come to me or any other agent with their wish list. This list usually has many items on it, maybe a particular community, square footage, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, proximity to highways or transportation, type of house, amenities. Some buyers have shorter lists and others have longer ones, but there are usually several items on the list. The difficult part comes in when the available inventory have some but not all of the items on the list. At that point, buyers just might need to compromise. So, it is helpful to decide up front, which of the items on the list are the "must haves" and which are the "would like to haves". Maybe the school district is the most important but you would give up proximity to public...

Canton MA Foreclosures, Short Sales and Bank Owned Real Estate for Sale Purchasing a home at a Canton MA foreclosures auction has many risks to a potential buyer and in most cases the bank will bid and take possession of the property at auction. The property is then referred to as bank owned, REO (real estate owned) or foreclosed property. To search the MA MLS listings visit Canton MA MLS listings. A home owner may attempt a "short sale" whereby the bank agrees to accept less than the mortgage balance based on the owner's hardship and financial status. Obtaining approval can be a long and difficult process. Additionally, there is no assurance that the lender will accept an offer at or above the listed price. Bank-owned and short sale listings are often marketed with a real estate agent ...
