Mortgage Checklist – Part 1

We wanted to roll out a step-by-step checklist – about everything you need to know – if you want to get a home loan. We’ll do half now, and half at the end of the next hour. OK?

Let’s start with the triple play. Not internet, TV and phone. The mortgage triple play is about the three most important things you’ll need to get a home loan. Good income. Good credit. And a good amount – of cash. You’ll need all three. But, getting all three ready to go might take some time.

That’s why, you need to start getting ready months in advance, if you want to be successful when you go for a mortgage. And that’s where we’ll begin. Say – six months out.

We talked about the first five steps in our first hour…so if you’re just joining us, you can either listen to that segment, or read the list, at

OK – let’s keep it rolling now – with number six.

This step happens about two or three months – before you want to buy. Ask your Realtor for a list of trusted mortgage lenders. And if you don’t have a Realtor yet – better get one, because two months out? You’re getting close.

Volts! Not Horsepower!

Now as you hear us say on the show quite often – there’s incredible value in maintenance. You’ve got to maintain your property inside and outside.

And part of that maintenance process involves the yard. You have to make sure your yard is properly cared for in order to achieve the highest possible value in today’s market.

So now that Summer’s here, we’ll all be going outside and mowing the lawn, trimming the weeds and using other outdoor power tools to get that landscaping in shape.

Don’t Lose that Money!

Welcome back to Real Estate Today and our special show ‘Speed Real Estate!’ A program dedicated to helping you buy and sell real estate quickly – without being reckless.

And we’re going to close out today’s show with a careful examination of all the ways you could put your money – at risk, if you go so fast you stop being careful.

But – in that case is the speed really worth it? I mean, sure – you can move on right away, to your next destination. And that’s worth something.
