THINKING OF BUYING A HOME?
We would love to earn your business here at Star Real Estate. We have realized that in order to be successful in business there is only one essential ingredient for success: Find out what the customer wants, and give that to the customer. At Star Real Estate the motto has always been: Service first, and the sales will follow. Trust your future in real estate to the STARS!
Selecting a Realtor can be half the battle of buying real estate. Your best chance of being successful in your next real estate transaction is using an Realtor licensed under a respected brokerage firm that has earned a solid reputation for honesty and integrity and is highly knowledgeable about their local real estate market.
Seven Steps to Getting Started
Here are the key steps to buying a home and how Star Real Estate can help make the experience easier.
Step 1: Learn your Credit Score Your FICO credit score will have a big impact on the mortgage rate you qualify for. Check yours and your co-applicant's early in the home-buying process. The better your score is, the better your interest rate will be. Start early so you have time to potentially improve your score and earn a better rate! Check your FICO Score
Step 2: Get Pre-Qualified This is probably the best advantage you can give yourself as a buyer. Learn the benefits of pre-qualification before you make an offer. Get Pre-Qualified with Terra Mortgage
Step 3: See what homes match your criteria

Step 5: Choose a Star Buyer’s Agent
Having a Buyer's Agent represent you provides some very significant advantages. Your Buyer's Agent will provide very specific services to protect your best interests. Your Buyer's Agent will use his or her best efforts to identify properties that meet your needs and will arrange for viewings of the homes you wish to consider. Your Buyer's Agent will advise you about pricing of other homes in the market and assist you in successfully negotiating for the purchase of your home. Your Buyer's Agent will provide safeguards for protecting confidential information that you share, and will give advice and assistance that is necessary to complete the purchase of your new home.
