Getting pre approved by a lender or bank before looking for a home in Wichita KS just makes sense. A mortgage lender takes the guesswork out of shopping for a house by letting you know how much you qualify for.

Most sellers want proof that you can get a loan to buy their house before they’ll go into contract with you. This is because the home is off the market while working through a contract and if it turns out someone can’t get financing that’s all wasted time and money.

Another good reason to have a pre approval letter from a lender in hand is when you find that perfect house your ready to make an offer. If you have to take the time to go and get pre approved someone else may swoop in and buy YOUR house!

Here’s another scenario;

Imagine you have been diligently searching for a home everyday for months and you finally find it. It’s perfect! You put in an offer and come to terms with the seller. Three weeks later the lender informs you that the house you want is $15,000 more than you qualify for. It’s heartbreaking and frustrating.

If one takes the time to get pre approved before searching for a home it makes the entire process easier and stress free. You know what you can afford. You’re ready to make an offer when you find that perfect home. You’ve already established a working relationship with your team consisting of yourself, your Realtor and your lender.

So do yourself a favor and go get pre approved by a lender before starting your home search in Wichita KS.

Time to Buy Real Estate in Wichita Kansas

If ever there was a good time to invest in real estate, it’s now. Seriously. I happen to believe the bottom is in, or at least close in the residential market. Regardless of whether it is or isn’t there are several factors that weigh in to make one think this is a buyers market.

The first is that the banks need money. The way banks make money is by charging interest rates for money they lend. OK, simple enough. This contraction the economy is in has put most of these big banks in the red. Some are recovering and even paying us back but still need more money. The best and easiest way for them to become and/or remain profitable (and pay back all that money they owe us, the taxpayer) is to make more money, and they do this by raising interest rates. Credit card companies are already doing it.

The Wichita Real Estate market faired better than most during the latest housing bubble. It slowed, like the rest of the country, but in comparison actually did very well. This shows how well this particular market holds it’s value. Housing prices are on the rise though. On the sales front, People are buying, just not in droves yet. When the flood of buyers start, prices will react quickly. Builders and homeowners alike have been taking much lower prices than their homes warrant. Whether buying a home for the first time, buying a second or vacation home or just investing in Real Estate you want to buy while prices are low.

There’s always the chance, as many think, that prices will fall even further. That’s a gamble you’d have to be willing to take. Stack that up against the time left for the tax credits and it just doesn’t make much sense to wait.

The Government has extended an $8000 dollar tax credit to first home buyers and added a $6500 credit for homeowners who want to “move up”. It all ends at the end of June. This does not have to be repayed. It is a big incentive to get people to buy. There are many economists that believe the health of the recovery we are beginning to feel depends on the housing market. The Government is doing everything it can to promote this. Extraordinary measures are being taken. When the recovery comes, and it will, home prices and interest rates will rise quickly. The Government will not be so generous as the next task will be to repay all the money that was borrowed and printed.

The last really bad inflation we had was in the 1970s and 80s. I remember my family paying 17% interest on the home we lived in. Back then it certainly didn’t bother me, that was my Dads problem. Now it will be mine. When the economy becomes inflated the Federal reserve is inclined to raise interest rates to try and tame it. Just as the Feds started to drastically reduced rates around 1999-2000 to stimulate the economy they will easily go the other way to slow it down. Inflation is coming. With all the money the Government and Fed have had to print and borrow in 2009, inflation will surely come around. Inflation happens when there is to much money supply. It reduces demand making money not so valuable, causing the price of goods and services go up.

Now is the time to buy and this is the perfect market. A perfect storm of good news for investors and potential homeowners alike.
