Give Homebuyers a Number to Shop With!
Real estate agents meet potential homebuyers every day. Some of these buyers say they are not quite ready to buy. They say it’s about the down payment, or timing the move, or a credit issue, or… (and the list goes on). Most agents tuck the future buyer’s name away with a plan to reach out when they are actually “ready” to buy.
The problem with this strategy is you may be missing out on potential buyers who are really saying, “I want to buy a home, but I don’t think I can manage it right now.” What they need is a lender who can actually fund their home loan right now, or in the near future with a specific loan qualification plan. They also need a NUMBER (purchase price) to shop with.
Your Academy Mortgage Loan Officer can help your client get ready to buy now or in the near future with a pre-qualification letter or plan, and a NUMBER they can start shopping with. When you send your clients to us at any stage of their home purchase decision, we can help them move towards a home purchase quicker than you or your client may think. Not to mention, we will help keep the homebuyer on the line until they are actually ready to buy.
Why is a NUMBER so important to a homebuyer? When a homebuyer has a target purchase price and a pre-qualification letter (or plan) from Academy Mortgage, they are A LOT more likely to start shopping for homes that fit their budget. Once potential homebuyers start browsing with a NUMBER in mind, their “I’m ready to buy!” date can move up considerably.
So the next time you meet a potential homebuyer that says, “I want to buy a home, but I’m not quite ready” encourage them to contact your Academy Mortgage Loan Officer. We will give your client a pre-qualification letter or a specific loan qualification plan, and a NUMBER they can shop with. Together we can help more people realize their dream of home ownership.
