What is the first step in buying a home in Portland Oregon?
Determine how much house can you afford.
Being able to know exactly what you can afford may dictate which type of home and where in Portland you will be looking in and we can help assess options once you have this information. Next step is to find a great agent, like us!
We specialize in exclusive buyer representation and if hired we ask a million questions about your home search and needs, goals and timelines to best help you in this journey. We are in the top 1% in Portland because we do such a great job upfront to streamline this process.
Can you recommend a great lender(s)?
Absolutely! We highly recommend working with a local reputable lender who can give you high level of customer service, communication and help you understand what your options are for financing.
In many cases an online lender or out of state lender is frowned upon by the listing agents when an offer is submitted. Always a good idea to work locally and we are happy to share some amazing lenders we work with consistently and who will provide the best rates and financing options.
Do I pay the buyer’s agent?
Nope! The simple answer is we get paid by a published commission in the Multiple listing service that is paid by the seller. So essentially getting your own representation does not cost you anything.
What kind of credit score do I need to have to get a loan?
In most cases a 620-credit score is enough to qualify for conventional financing. There are some other programs out there that will go less but to get the best interest rate and terms 620+ is safe.
How long does it take to buy a home?
Normal closing dates are 30 days from offer acceptance. Sometimes it can be up to 40-45 days, but if you are getting to finance the average time for a lender is 30 days.
