Today we'll be discussing the importance of finding good financing when you're looking to buy a home. It's incredibly important to get Pre-approved by a mortgage lender even before you start looking at homes, because this way you can determine what you'll be able to spend and it will narrow down your home search quite a bit.

We have Donna Lowery with us today from Renasant bank to help us discuss the importance of finding a good lender when you buy a home. Determining what loan option you need will require you to answer a few questions for your mortgage lender, because everyone's needs are all different. 

Your credit score will be a major factor in choosing which loan program will suit you best, but so will your future plans. It's really important to go out and get pre-approved before you go out and start looking. Otherwise you risk looking for homes that you cannot afford, and that would be a waste of your valuable time. 

Just so everyone knows, Donna has worked with at least 25 of our first-time home buyers and set them up with fantastic loan programs. She is a fantastic resource if you're looking to buy a home in Birmingham. 

As always, please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you might have about real estate in Birmingham.

With 2015 in the full swing, we thought we should take a look at our success and failures from 2014 and set our goals for this year accordingly.

In 2014, we set the (crazy!) goal of selling 100 homes by the end of the year. We're very excited to announce that - thanks to you, your friends, and your family - we actually reached that goal! We sold 108 homes last year that were worth a total of about $15 million.

We hope to grow even more in 2015 by adding another buyer agent. With another agent we think we can sell 150 homes for a total of around $20 million in real estate. This is yet another lofty goal, but we really think we're capable of making it happen, especially because you've all proven to be so supportive of our team.

In order to reach our goals this year, we need some help. We are currently looking for hard-working and personable person to join our thriving team! We're looking for someone who is talented and caring, someone who has high standards and is willing to put clients first in all that we do! If you or someone you know is interested in a career in real estate, give us a call or shoot us an email. We would love to sit down with you and see if you're the right fit for our ever-growing team! 

Thanks, and have a wonderful day!
