The journey to home ownership can seem daunting without some effective home buying tips. Rob Jensen, Broker and Founder of Rob Jensen Company offers valuable advice on securing the best deal when purchasing a home in this episode of the CoachYu Show.

He emphasizes the importance of diligent research in finding the best real estate agent representation. This involves online searches, reviewing sales histories, reading agent reviews, and conducting interviews with top picks.

Jensen also underscores the necessity of having your finances in order to avoid missing out on great opportunities. Sellers favor certainty, hence cash is the most desirable form of payment, followed by an underwritten loan pre-approval, with an over-the-phone pre-qualification being the least preferred. Jensen also encourages potential buyers to actively view homes, as this helps refine search criteria.

The number of homes to view varies among individuals, but the process ultimately leads to finding the perfect home and feeling comfortable enough to submit an offer. In the end, one of the best home buying tips to remember is that an informed buyer is a successful buyer.
