Better, more prepared buyers, get better buys

Fill out my online form.




If you want to get a better home for less money, then become a better buyer. A better buyer is someone who prepares for their home purchase, putting their finances in order and mastering their small slice of the real estate market. And by doing so, these homebuyers put themselves in the position of buying the very best home at the very lowest cost.

Better buying is like getting ready for the big dance or making sure you’re totally organized for that important job interview. Better buyers prepare for what is undoubtedly the biggest and most important purchase of their lives. They make their luck by preparing and being ready for opportunities that present themselves. Better buying is not about playing hard to get, broadcasting “we’re not in a hurry,” as if that might inspire eager sellers to chase them. Sellers are quick to dismiss (or take advantage of) the timid nansy pansy buyer.

First and foremost, better buyers put themselves in the position of being ready and willing to buy. That means learning how much you can afford, managing your credit picture and getting pre-approved for the best possible loan.

Better buyers also do their homework. They invest the time to explore what they really want and need and the value of this in the local marketplace. They drive neighborhoods and see plenty of homes and come to know for themselves if a home is overpriced…or bargain priced.

Finally, a better buyer decides when they’re ready to purchase and is prepared to be decisive about what they want and what they are willing to pay. The better buyer is prepared to buy because they’ve got all of their ducks in a row and are ready for a premium opportunity.

Better buyers:

* Know(or learn) what they want
* Know what they have to spend
* Prepare to act.
* Have the clout of a quality lender behind them.
* Possess the power to negotiate.
* Are engaged in the home buying process.
* Can trump other homebuyers who are not better buyers.

Becoming a better buyer doesn’t happen overnight, but with our help, it will happen quickly. Becoming a better buyer isn't hard or scary...it's empowering.

We’ll put you into the position of knowing a good buy when you find one, knowing your credit capability and being prepared to assert your buying power to get the best home at the best price.

At www.BetterHomeLessMoney.com, we can make you a better buyer. Contact us today and you’ll have the power to purchase a better home for less money.
