How To Gain an Advantage in Today’s Real Estate Market
Today’s real estate market is red-hot, especially here in Rochester, NY. Since the homebuying market opened back up in Spring 2020, homebuyers have been paying over asking prices whenever a house becomes available. In fact, Rochester, NY was recently listed as a top ten city in markets where buyers are paying over asking prices. That’s not all. There’s even a record home shortage in our city that’s leading to bidding wars, cash purchases, and all types of top-tier negotiating.
People are being encouraged to sell, sell, sell in this crazy market and it doesn’t appear to be stopping anytime soon. So, if you’re looking to buy a home, how can you one-up the competition? Preferred Mortgage’s Commitment Letter First loan program gives you all the benefits you need to gain a competitive edge in today’s real estate market!
With this mortgage loan program, a firm Commitment Letter is issued from our Lenders upfront, once your mortgage application is approved, and before you have a home to purchase.
Why is a mortgage commitment letter important?
A mortgage commitment letter is an agreement between a lender and a buyer detailing the agreed-upon terms of a loan, including the number of funds they’re set to receive and the type of loan being granted. It’s also called an approval letter, and it’s official proof you’re going to get a loan. Without a mortgage commitment letter, sellers are less likely to move forward on any deals.
