Before you start searching for a home in Doylestown

If you’re a first-time home buyer or someone who hasn’t bought a home recently, we recommend that you begin with an in-person Buyer Consultation. That will enable Lisa Povlow, your Weichert Sales Associate, to help you identify and clarify your requirements for your new home and then give you a good idea what to expect when you proceed with your home search.

Here are some questions to ponder as you begin to define the kind of home you really want:

  • What style or type of home interests you – contemporary or historic, ranch or colonial?
  • How large a home do you want, with how many bedrooms and baths?
  • What do you think are the key features—for example, deck, fireplace, family room or central air conditioning?
  • How will you determine whether a location is right for you – schools? Commuting needs? Availability of shopping?
  • Would you consider buying a home that is in need of some renovation or expansion?
  • Will it be necessary to sell your home to buy your next?

During your Buyer Consultation, Lisa Povlow will also introduce you to one of our Weichert Gold® Services Managers, a financial expert who can assist you with getting a mortgage credit approval and calculating just how much you can afford to spend.

Since a pre-approval, unlike a pre-qualification, is based on your specific financial situation, it takes the mystery out of what you can afford. It will also give any prospective seller more confidence in your ability to obtain a mortgage. If you end up bidding on the same house as another buyer, your mortgage credit approval might be the deciding factor in getting your offer accepted.
