            The first step is pre approval from the bank for a mortgage. This way you’ll know how much you can actually afford to spend. Once that’s out of the way, look at all of the houses little flaws. Check the plumbing and electrical system and all the fun stuff to make sure the house is in tip top shape.

            Okay, so the house is perfect, or close to perfect, and you want to make an offer. You will need to work with your real estate agent with this as they will help you develop and present the offer to the seller.

Laminate flooring is a multi-layer, synthetic flooring product that simulates wood. Although there are many pros to having laminate flooring, there are several common problems that can come along with it.

Laminate Problems and How to Fix Them:

  1. Peaking

            Peaking is an expansion problem. Floors and walls expand and contract based on the weather, humidity and other things. When flooring expands against doorways, molding, or walls, it can buckle. This can be fixed by taking out the molding to let the floor expand and even out.

2.  Water/Moisture-induced warping/buckling

            Dampness, either from humidity or water, can cause laminate flooring to buckle or warp. A balancing layer can help to even out the flooring.

There is a popular misconception among buyers that if a lender pre-qualifies them for a mortgage, they have been pre-approved for a loan. However, these two terms are very different.

This step is simple and can easily be done over the phone or on the internet, typically with no charge.

 The purpose of pre-qualification is to allow you and your lender to go over any goals or needs you may have in regard to your mortgage. This is when your lender can
