"What do you mean by asking me if I am serious about buying a house?" In this real estate market if a home buyer is serious they will act serious. How does one "act serious?"
First, know the process. How does one learn about the process? The answer is here: choosing the right real estate agent.
Secondly, get pre-approved for a mortgage. There is a difference between a pre-approval and pre-qualification. If you want a seller to know you are serious, have a pre-approval letter available at the time an offer is tendered. Just as important understand all the numbers involved with a home purchase. Here is a summary of all the numbers involved with a home purchase.
Finally, proceed with a real plan with a goal of success. To develop a plan your real estate agent will most likely ask a ton of questions. These questions are critical to putting together a plan for success.
Follow the above suggestions and everyone involved will know you are a serious buyer.
Still, even with a perfect plan, there will likely be bumps in the road - some avoidable, some fixable and some that may even require a detour.
