Are you moving to Northwest Houston from another city or state in the foreseeable future? If so, you’re in luck! This step-by-step guide will help you narrow down our niche area to the town that best fits your needs.
Step One: Online Research
With tons of online sources for information on real estate in our area, your first step is to research potential neighborhoods. If your relocation is job related, we suggest targeting your work area and researching the commute to and from the neighborhoods you’re interested in. Don’t forget to include the cost of toll roads; several Houston freeways require a toll tag.
Step Two: Contact a Cypress Realtor
Finding a realtor who is knowledgeable about the current real estate market, neighborhoods, schools, and relocation process can save you quite a bit of time. The Lippincott Team works with people every day, helping them narrow their search criteria to find the home of their dreams!
Step Three: Get Pre-Approved by a Cypress Mortgage Broker
If you’ll be borrowing a loan to purchase your new home, speak with a Cypress area broker early in the process. Getting pre-approved early does not negatively impact your credit score, and a broker can help you determine the best loan program for your unique situation and help you determine your best approach to home buying in Cypress. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you need a recommendation for a great mortgage broker in our area!
Step Four: Know What You Want
Once you know what you can afford, it’s time to prioritize your wants and needs. School zones, commutes, cost of HOA fees, and nearby shops and restaurants are all good things to consider. The Lippincott Team can help you think through this process directly and show you homes that meet your criteria.
