The buyer of a property listing, some Maine real estate is often some kind of excited, anxious to get into their own place.
Can you blame them after being parked in the rent rut too long? Throwing all that cash in the trash. With nothing to show for it but the rent receipts on the Maine home or apartment.
That is never going to be theirs to call home sweet home to raise a family in and live for the mortgage burning party. Because it is someone else's dream. Leased, rented, not owned.
So when the Maine property buyer believes it is time to step out and buy, is it?
The focus on the real estate closing in Maine and getting a set of keys to the place often blinds, washes out the rest of the steps to get to that long table surrounded by all the cushy, leather back chairs.
The Maine home buyer can often forget the other steps along the way to roll into the closing, get to the finish line. The necessary procedure to get ready to buy a Maine home that has to happen in ABC steps. With careful guidance and a set of expectations of what is coming up and why education.
Because instead of find a home in Maine and then waltz into a bank, it is more and more the other way around.
The approach to buying a Maine home is finding a program, a loan product that fits your needs. To get the all important bank financing approval first. For that house paperwork needing all the blank application spaces filled out with the dotted "I"'s and crossed "T's".
