Cindy, Find me a killer deal!” This is something I hear so often that so I decided to give buyer tips and instructions on what you need to do to find that killer deal! So you want an Anna Maria Island Home deals?
The First and most important thing for Anna Maria Home deals you need to do is to get a Pre-approval for a mortgage from a lender or provide a letter of proof of funds if you are paying cash. The listing agents representing these properties and banks will NOT submit your offer to the Seller without one. Buyers who are prepared and have these letters will be able to submit offers immediately. I typically don’t show property to buyers without having this letter. It shows me that you are a qualified and legitimate buyer and not wasting time. This also tells me what you are able to afford so we don’t make an offer on a house for $200k, when the lender says you can only mortgage $180k. Or vice versa, you may be able to afford more than you originally thought!
