Preparation is key to becoming a homeowner. The Madison, WI and surrounding housing market is hot and you need to be ready to buy if you're looking at properties. So it is very important you are in the process of getting pre-approved or already pre-approved before you begin to actually view properties. The last thing you want to do is fall in love with a house and not be ready to write an offer. Plus knowing how much money you need to put down, what interest rate you can get, amount of the monthly payment and what the closing cost are going to be will be key to closing a smooth transaction. The Huemmer Home Team can help you through the process and recommend other professionals to assist you too. Check out our recent article; Taking the Fear out of the Mortgage Process, click here.
