Sure Signs of Being a Tire Kicker..

Tire kickers are folks who walk on a car lot, look around, talk about cars but never act.  

I have not been on a car lot in years but I remember the first step car salesmen try is to get your personal info to “run a credit inquiry.”   In my opinion, a pretty shady technique, yet I can understand the need. 

As a real estate agent I do not run inquiries but I will ask you questions about your goals and mortgage status.  Why?

Shopping for a house or condo can be a time consuming, labor intensive process.   As a prospective purchaser your time is valuable.  You want to look at the most properties available that meet your criteria. 

Your primary consideration must be price.   If a property meets all your criteria except price, we have wasted your time.  If I have not shown you properties that you can afford I have not done my job either!

Speaking with a lender first shows signs of a serious buyer - not a tire kicker! 

Need a lender recommendation, email me  for a few suggestions.  Of course your lender decision is your decision!
