Spring market has started already, there will be more houses coming to the market as sellers have prepared to clean up the winter debris and mess in and around their house.
More than ever, if you are a motivated buyer you need to get yourself pre-approved letter from your local lender ready so if you see the house you like. You are in a position to make an offer. Too often, I have seen buyers like the house but there are blemish in the credit score and it will take a couple of months to clear that up. Houses will not last in the market forever. For many buyers, they think by logging in internet you can get your credit score as an info. You need to talk to a local lender so you know what you will need to get yourself mortageable.
Happy house hunting!
