Peak home buying season is upon us and you don't want to miss out on your dream home because you aren't prepared for the rush of buyers entering the market at once. Your Future Home hosts Baker Machado and Brad Smith run through a few tips to help you close on your home before enjoying the summer. During peak season you want to make sure you're focused on the house, not the owner. Don't get hung up on whether the home is a foreclosure, a short sale or a traditional sale. Concentrate on the location and look for homes that meet your basic requirements. Plus, be prepared to pay the listing price . Ask your agent to show you a list of comparable sales to determine the home's actual value. If you are getting the home you want at a price you can afford, whether you pay a little more or less, doesn't matter in the big picture.
