One of the most important things that you need to do when buying a home in Southern California s is to think like a seller because once you put yourself in the mindset of a seller it will make the process of buying a home much easier than you could imagine.
Eliminate Your Financial Risks
The first step to thinking like a seller is for you to eliminate any financial risk that you might pose to a homeowner because one of a seller’s worst “nightmares” is to deal with a buyer who submits an offer on their home only for the buyer to lose their mortgage loan pre-approval status.
To avoid losing your mortgage loan pre-approval you shouldn’t make any major financial changes like buying a car while you are buying a home, and you also shouldn’t change jobs either because your lender will want to be certain that you have the ability to repay your mortgage loan.
Don’t Be Afraid To Be Personable With the Seller
After eliminating your financial risks and making certain that you’re ready financially to purchase a home you should also be ready to be personable with the seller and even write a letter to them which tells them how much you really love their home.
Even though a seller will de-clutter and remove the personalization from their home before listing it, they still have a personal attachment to the house and the may be motivated to choose an offer from a buyer who promises to love their home just as much as they did.
Find Out Why They Are Selling Their Home
Last of all, but most important, once you find a home in Southern California that you love, the next thing to do is for you to go the extra mile and find out why they are selling their home.
This step is important because, you may find that the homeowner is selling while trying to buy another home at the same time and if you’re willing to rent the home back to the seller for an extra 30 days until they are able to buy another house this could be the one thing that helps your offer to stand out from others.
