7 Tips for Buying a Home in San Francisco

7 Tips for Buying a Home in San Francisco

Tips
ENGAGE A MORTGAGE PROFESSIONAL:  Check in with one as soon as possible if you are financing the purchase. You’ll need a letter of pre-approval in hand if your offer is going to be competitive, and it can take time to round up your documentation. BE OPEN IN TERMS OF NEIGHBORHOODS & MUST-HAVE'S: You’re in the strongest position if you're flexible―especially about your choice of neighborhoods and amenities. Every neighborhood has its charms, so don’t be too quick to exclude one. Perhaps 1.5 baths are enough? Or maybe leased parking is workable? GET FAMILIAR WITH THE MARKET: Go to as many open houses as possible that fit within your budget. Within no time you’ll develop a feel for what your money will buy. KNOW YOUR ONLINE SOURCES: Some are reliable, but…
