First time home buyers

Pat’s Realty is here to help guide you through the home buying and/or selling process. Here are a few resources that will help you navigate the real estate process.

Your Home’s Current Value

When thinking about selling your home, it’s good to have an idea of what your home may be worth. While there are many free online quick and simple valuation tools, these are often not as accurate as a full valuation from a professional realtor. Local realtors, like us at Pat’s, know the area and the market and understand what makes your home special. For your free, no obligation, market valuation of your home or property, fill out our short questionnaire, stop in to the office or give us a call and one of our top local agents will help you make sure you understand the value of your home and if you are interested, what things you might do to increase its value.

Mortgage Calculator

If you are thinking about buying a property, and don’t have a ton of cash on hand, you will probably need to get a mortgage. Getting a quick idea of what you can afford is an important first step in your planning process. Here is a simple online tool that can help you get an idea of what you can afford. After you move along in the process a bit, meeting with a mortgage lender will be the best way to know how much you can borrow. Give us a call if you need advice on finding a quality local lender.
