Don’t make major purchases or incur any additional debt until after your purchase. Pay down credit cards and don’t apply for new ones.

Sometimes homes sell quickly, so be ready to make fast decisions. Be accessible to change the terms.
Have instant access to your agent
Instant communication can mean the difference in purchasing the property of your choice.
