Five Reasons To Get Pre-Approved For A Loan Before Buying A Home Or Condo

Buying a home is a big decision and the search can be quite overwhelming. Understanding the benefits of getting pre-approved for a loan before buying a home can help cut down on the anxiety and worries often associated with the entire process.

Knowing how much home you qualify for ahead of time can help cut down on the number of home viewings. Depending on your price range, you may have many homes or just a handful. Regardless, it is easier to pick from a select group than jumping all over the place not knowing how much you will qualify for.

Having all of your financial information in order will help the process move along. The potential lender will require you to provide information about employment, tax information, as well as verification of the same. If you are self-employment, other criteria must be met to prove to the lender you can afford to make monthly payments.

There are great benefits to knowing how much home you can afford before house hunting. One of the greatest advantages of getting pre-approved is you can narrow down your house hunting search. One a price range is determined, your realtor can focus on finding the amenities you are a looking for within that price range.

Getting a home loan from the lender makes life easier for everyone. You, the buyer know what you can afford up front, the seller can be assured that you have been qualified by the bank so they are not wasting their time, and the realtor can focus on homes within your price range and look more closely for amenities that you desire.

Getting approved does not mean the deal is sealed. It must go to underwriting and all of your documentation will be checked for validity and accuracy. As long as everything is in order, chances are your loan will be approved. If you are self-employed you will be required to supply additional documentation since there is no employer to contact. The lender can still pre-qualify you, based on the information provided, for a specific amount.

Purchasing property is a big decision. You are making probably one of the biggest commitments in your life, agreeing to 30, 20, or 15 years of payments. The benefit of being a homeowner will prove to be worth all of the work and stress endured when it is all said and done.

Business Blogging – 3 Groups to Satisfy

Despite everything being same, business blogging differs from general blogging in at least one important way—the target audience. The target audience of a business blog falls in three distinct categories, each with different need, wants, and desire. All of which needs to be fulfilled should your business blog wants to succeed. In this blog post, I will focus my attention not on how part of satisfaction (how to satisfy), but on whom part (whom to satisfy).

In anything you do, knowledge of your target audience will take you a long way.

Customers

Customer is king, and his satisfaction is paramount. Whatever we do that passes for corporate or marketing communication should be attuned to satisfying customers’ need. Your blog should also serve to this end. Your blog will open a direct channel for them to communicate directly with decision makers in your organization. Keep this in mind and write accordingly. Tell everything worth your customers’ while on your blog and ask for feedback as well. Your goal is to connect and communicate with your customers.

Employees

Employees are your internal customer and their satisfaction or dissatisfaction with your organization will directly result in the satisfaction and dissatisfaction of your customers because they are the ones that create and deliver value. Think for a moment—how profitable your organization will be if the value creation and delivery engine (employees) of your organization stops functioning properly? You need to keep your employees in the know of everything that’s going on in your company. They need to know about the recent changes in your HR policy, the clients that you have acquired, clients you have stopped serving, people you have hired, and people who are star among equals. You can also ask your employees to drop feedback on the stuffs that are happening to your organization. Keep them informed and make them feel insider. This will go a long way.

Investor

How can you not inform people who put their money in your company about the internal affair of your company? Do not do that and you guarantee distrust and withdrawal of fund. Investors are important for your business, and knowledge about your company is important for them. Provide them what they need and they will give you what you need—money. To be certain of return on their investment investors need to have information about your company. Use your blog to serve them information. Keep them abreast with every important update in your company.

With this, the post comes to an end. In the next post, I will talk about 3 more customer groups that you may like to target with your blog.

 

 

3 Cs of Blogging – Comment, Conversation and Community

Acquiring new users and keeping the existing ones is the goal of any blog. The blog’s success in these two departments will determine the overall success of a blog, and fortunately there is a way to do this. A system that will help you acquire new visitors and retain the existing ones. We call it 3 Cs of blogging: Comments, Conversation and community.

Comment

Comment is the life blood for your blog. This is the juice that flows only when you write a compelling post and ask people to send in their views by adding call to action at the end of each blog post. At the end of the post ask your visitors to leave comments, suggestions and their opinions about the post. This will prompt them to write on your blog.

The best way to get comment is to write something controversial. Having said that, it is worth mentioning that despite what you do, comment rate will never be more than 1-2 percent of the total readership.

Conversation

Take it like this: you started the conversation by writing a post, and the readers did their part by writing their views in the comment box, now it is again on you to respond to each comment to keep the conversation going. You should never stop responding to your visitors. You will stop getting comments, the moment you stop responding to your visitors, so keep the conversation flow swift and let the comment juice flow.

Community

A lot of two-way conversation builds a community on your website, a community of people that have similar aspiration and desire. Now it on you, the blogger, to keep the community intact by providing the community what it seeks. If you want to build a pool of loyal reader then do not ignore any reader. Respect each of them, and respect their views. By respecting their views, I do not mean to say that accept it. You have all the right to contest their views and think differently, but do it in such a way that it does not offend the visitors.
