Buying & Selling Tips

Top Ways to Save Time & Money When Buying or Selling
 

  • Find a Real Estate Agent with a Stellar Track Record
     
    Before you hire a real estate agent -- do your homework -- ask important questions about their past – number of homes sold, listing versus sales price, days on market averages and experience.

  • Get Pre-Qualified Before You Start Looking for a New Home
     
    Due to increased restrictions on the mortgage industry, what you could borrow 5 years ago may not be the same as it is today. Before you spend hours of your time looking at houses, make sure you know what you can afford, that way you’re not wasting your time.

  • Use Your Resources to Save Time and Money
     
    By using Union Plus Real Estate Rewards, members save (on average) around $1,000 per transaction.* Union members can also save by using other partners including mortgage, moving and settling services. Be sure to check out all options as you build your moving budget.
