Know How Much You Can Spend – Get a Mortgage Pre-Approval


Getting a mortgage pre- approval will save you valuable time. When buying a home one of the first things you need to do is to find out how much home you can afford. You don’t want to spend your time falling in love with a home for sale only to discover that you cannot afford to buy that home.

Advantages for home buyers to get pre-approved for a mortgage


  • You will know in advance what your payments will be.
  • You won’t waste time looking at homes you cannot afford.
  • There are many loan options and programs to choose from in today’s market.
  • Your lender will help you select one that is best suited for you.
  • Most sellers in today’s real estate market will not accept an offer without a pre-approval.
  • You will have an estimate of closing cost and they will be explained to you in detail. This way there are no surprises when it comes time to close.
  • In today’s competitive real estate market, you may find yourself bidding against other home buyers for the home you want. This is what we call a multiple offer situation. If you are a pre-approved this will give you the edge you may need to submit a winning offer.


What my clients are saying  

Being new to Florida, we had no idea where to start......Kari was fantastic in helping us find our home, she made sure to show us the homes that had the features we were most interested in, while keeping it in our budget! From start to finish she was always a text or call away; promptly responding to any question we had. Great experience throughout! Definitely recommend

Kari became known to us through her website & speaking directly with her convinced my husband and me that she would be the perfect Real Estate Broker for us. Kari was presented with the task of working with us from “out of state”, & with specific guidelines of what we were looking for. Our knowledge of Venice from previously living there; helped us pick the areas we wanted to look in, but to find just that “perfect house” could be a challenge...long hours of searching, daily updates, her honesty & integrity throughout the whole process & her most valuable knowledge in all phases of real estate was so impressive and paid off in the end. Kari went the “extra mile” with helping us in many areas that she wasn’t responsible for, in order to make our dream come true...she is the type of person I would be proud to also call a friend.

Kari was excellent in helping us close the purchase of our new home. Our real estate purchase took a long time to complete & there was a number of problems to sort out, but Kari dealt with all the issues in a quick & professional manner. We would definitely have her look after any of our future real estate transactions.

Kari is as honest and hard working as they come. She made a very difficult process seem as smooth as silk. If you are looking to buy or sell a house in the greater Sarasota area you would be doing yourself an injustice to use anyone else!

 

~ BrokerByFord

Kari is a remarkable real estate agent. She worked with us on a short sale and never gave up, even when the market was at its worst. She is professional and extremely knowledgable of the area. I have recommeded her to family and friends and will continue to do so.

Kari was terrific in all respects! My particular transaction took quite a while (no fault of hers) and she was patient, diligent and thorough. Ultimately, she "got it done" and I doubt that many other agents would have kept their commitment to me in the same way that Kari did.

Kari is an agent that will go above and beyond..she did just that for us and our sale! She was everything you look for in an agent,a good communicator, great negotiator and very knowledgeable about our current market and the SW Florida area! She always had a calm way of dealing with even the most stressful of situations (even with a difficult buyer)! She always made us feel like she was on our side thru it all! She kept us informed thru out the entire sale process. Whether it was thru email,texts, or a phone call, we always knew what was happening. We were thankful to have such an amazing agent and have recommended her to others already!
