Buying a home while relocating can prove to be a difficult task. Luckily, we’re well versed in what it takes to relocate to the great city of Omaha! Over the years, we’ve helped many families from out of state purchase a home in preparation for their move here.
Below are a few tips to help you start the relocation process, but if you’re serious about relocating, we recommend you give us a call at 402-991-5153 so we can help with your unique situation.
Begin an Online Search
This probably comes as second nature to most people now, but we think conducting an online search about various aspects of the city you’ll be moving to is the best place to start. Make sure to research the different neighborhoods, school districts, entertainment, public transportation, and more. Utilize trusted area resources such as the local newspaper, Chamber of Commerce, and the police department’s website.
Find a Trusted Lender
After you’ve completed a little preliminary research about buying a home while relocating, we suggest you find a lender to work with. Finding the right lender to help you relocate can be a difficult task, but it’s absolutely necessary. After being pre-approved, your lender will be able to help you understand real estate laws that may differ from your current state and other intricacies you wouldn’t otherwise know.
For example, we’ve found that many of our relocation clients aren’t aware they need one of the following to be pre-approved for a loan:
- 30 days of paystubs at their new job
- A guaranteed job contract
- Relocating while working for the same company
That’s just one of many details your lender can help you understand. In addition, your lender can help you find a realtor to assist with the home search. Finding a knowledgeable local realtor is key because they can help you expand on the information you found online. They can also offer you an invaluable perspective into various neighborhoods that only someone who has lived in the area can provide.
Here at Mortgage Specialists, we value our customers’ satisfaction above anything else, which is why we take the time to explain the entire process to them, keep them updated on their loan’s progress, and make ourselves available for questions on nights and weekends. Not to mention, we’ve worked in Omaha for over 20 years and have developed an outstanding reputation in the industry. A pre-approval from a well-trusted lender is a great way to make your offer stand out from the competition.
