Get pre-approved before listing your home. . . . here’s why

Before you list your current home for sale, it’s smart to ensure you are prepared to move into your next home. Becoming pre-approved for a mortgage, or st least starting the process, is an important part of that process.

Note, becoming pre-approved is a longer process than being pre-qualified. It requires more documentation, and will help your lender narrow in on a specific amount you will be approved for under specific conditions.

Your credit will be examined when you get a pre-approval for a home, resulting in a hard inquiry on your report. But, it will tell you and your lender if you qualify for the type of home you seek.

Getting pre-approved enables you to get ahead on your home search, with a competitive edge while I work to sell your home. You can begin narrowing down your ideal neighborhoods and dreaming about your next home with a price range in mind.

Lastly, Doing the work upfront and getting it all done will free up time and prevent a  headache once we get an offer on your home. Getting pre-approved in advance will allow for the stress to be reduced since you wont have to worry about it. We can just focus on House shopping, and enjoying that process.approvedCall, email, or text me anytime to go over the steps on selling and buying. I specialize in this and can walk you through all the ‘ins’ and ‘outs’ of it. I hope to hear from you soon.

Client Review from Rachel P.

Thank you Rachel for taking the time to write this testimonial! i think your the best!

Rachel is nothing less than amazing. We sold our home during an emotionally difficult situation and she was immediately there to help and reassure us every step of the way. What seemed to start as a pretty cut and dry situation turned very difficult, she was patient with my weekly (probably more) melt downs, and she fought for our best interest. When dealing with people who were anything but professional she always stayed classy. I will definitely be calling Rachel the next time I need a realtor. Her years of experience and passion for people makes her the best around.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL- THANK YOU SCOTT & MEG!

Thank you Scott & Meg for this absolutely wonderful testimonial. You are such wonderful people. I’m honored to be your realtor…..For life!

“As first time buyers, our experience with Rachel was amazing. She really took care of us from beginning to end, and her attentiveness and thoroughness helped us feel secure throughout the process. She’s a rockstar advocate to have on your side of the table. Her tenaciousness secured our house for us over five competing offers and her career’s worth of connections and willingness to make all the arrangements helped the inspection process move quickly and smoothly. We are so glad that we were referred to Rachel, and will be forever thankful for everything she did to help us get into our first home. –Megan & Scott Cutler”

MAY 2016 CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

THANK YOUY Geo & Lela for the wonderful testimonial! It really is my honor to represent you! I’m always here for you and yours.

 

Testimonial for Geoffrey & Lela, May 2016;

My husband and I were referred to Rachel Sheller by a friend.

Despite several warm phone calls and emails back and forth with Rachel, I was still very anxious about meeting another realtor.  Our previous experience with a different realtor was unpleasant, to say the least.

From the moment I met Rachel in person, I knew she was the right person to help us purchase our first home. She greeted us with a huge smile and gave us both a big hug. Every time we’ve met, she’s been as warm and genuine as she was that first day.

Rachel completely knows the ins and outs of the VERY complex world of real estate. She knows exactly what needs to be done, how it needs to be done, and has no problem taking care of business.

We ran into a couple of snafus during the buying process and Rachel was quick to offer suggestions, find solutions, and get things straightened out. She is direct and firm without being overbearing and pushy.

We absolutely recommend Rachel for anyone looking to buy a home and we are planning to work with her again for future purchases.”
