5 Step Process for Buying a Home in Bend

A (9)









Buying a home in Bend is an exciting part of life since it means you will finally be moving from being a renter to a home owner.

Although the local Real Estate market is competitive right now you can give yourself the edge in the home buying process by following these simple tips.

    Tip 1 – Get Pre-Approved For a Mortgage Loan

Getting pre-approved for a mortgage is important since it will tell you the exact mortgage loan amount you qualify for and the funds you have to work with when buying a home.

Tip 2 – Determine Your Preferences

Think about where you want to live in Bend and determine what you are searching for in a home including your “must have’s” and “should have’s” in a home.

You should also determine the amenities you are searching for in a home or community as well.

Tip 3 – Choose a Real Estate Agent

Interview at least 5 Bend Oregon Realtor’s so you find the right Realtor ® who you feel comfortable working with.

Tip 4 – Preview Homes for Sale

Your agent may start with an area tour then show you specific homes in Bend which match what you are searching for.

During the home search it’s important to keep an open mind, especially since you may come across homes which have great potential, and after a little renovation could have everything you could want in a home.

Tip 5 – Make an Offer on a Home

Once you find a home in Bend you are interested in buying you will then make an offer on that home.

Before submitting an offer though your Realtor will provide you with a comparable analysis of homes for sale in Bend so you can submit a competitive offer on the home.

Don’t be deterred if you are going up against multiple bidders, take the time to write a letter to the homeowner which talks about your family and how much you love the home.

Adding that personalized touch may help the homeowner to choose your offer versus a competitors offer.
