Smart Buying Tips for Seattle Real Estate Market | Bellevue & King County

intro paragraph

#1) Do your homework on the areas you’d like to live in

Look at commute times to work, routes to the highway and main streets, how safe the local area is for shopping, etc, and if the community has most of the amenities you’re looking for.

#2) Really know your budget

Know what your limits are, what the offers are looking like in a particular area for properties (talk with your agent), what type of loan you think you’ll be qualified for, and so on. Know how much you’re able to put towards a down payment, closing costs and potential escalations in the offers.
