Welcome to Florida's Space Coast
Brevard County, otherwise known as the Space Coast, is located in the east-central area of Florida. Nestled in the middle of Osceola, Orange, and Indian River Counties, Brevard County, Florida's second largest, is home to Kennedy Space Center and some of the most beautiful beaches along the Atlantic.
Due to its location, Brevard County also is only a 60-mile drive to Orlando attractions such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and International Drive. With its space-age technology, beautiful beaches, and terrific tourist destinations, the Space Coast is where the world lifts off.
A Step By Step Look at Home Buying
Some real estate laws and customs differ depending on where you live, but there are many home buying steps that are standard, even though they might not be accomplished in the same order in every location. Here are the 11 steps to buying a home:
Step 1 - Get Your Credit/Finances in Order
Your credit reports is a primary factor in determining what interest rate you will receive and how much the banks are willing to loan you toward the purchase of the property, so make sure you check it and ensure there are no issues before starting the property search process Know your financial history before you apply for a mortgage, as errors on credit reports are common and often require a lot of time to clear up.
Step 2 - Get Familiar with the Mortgage Industry
Have at least a bit of background about the loan process before you talk to a lender (if you do not already have it, find some one who does or consult with your realtor who can assist you in the process). Find a ender that you are comfortable with and that fits your needs.
Step 3 - Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage
Once your credit/finances are in check, apply for a pre-approved mortgage to establish how much house you can afford? It also helps if you are involved in a bidding war for a property, the potential buyer that has already been pre-approved will get preferential treatment from the seller.
Step 4 - Determine Your Wants and Needs
Grab a piece of paper and divide it into three columns. If you'll have a co-owner, have that person make a list too, but don't share ideas just yet.
