Here’s a very good article from the Fond du Lac Reporter. it includes red flags on home inspections and home buying tips, staging and financing news. The article also happens to feature First Weber agent, Karen Jo Dobyns 🙂
A few key points made are:
Wisconsin buyers usually look for a home on their own, then contact a REALTOR for assistance. There’s nothing wrong with that, but if you contact a REALTOR before you start looking, they mat be able to act as a buyer’s agent for you. Buyer agents are a real benefit to buyers since they can provide information and negotiating on the buyer’s behalf.
Get preapproved. It makes sense to know who much you can afford or how much Wisconsin real estate you can buy.
People with credit scores of 620 or better are getting loans.
Thanks for the positive real estate article, Fond du Lac Reporter! We need to see more of that
