The last few weeks and months have caused a major health crisis all over the world, leading to a pause in the U.S. economy as businesses and consumers work to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The rapid spread of the virus has been compared to prior pandemics and outbreaks not seen in many years. It also has consumers remembering the economic slowdown of 2008 that was caused by a housing crash. This economic slowdown, however, is very different from 2008.


One thing the experts are saying is that while we will see a fast decline in economic activity in the second quarter, we will begin a sharp rebound in the second half of this year. According to John Burns Consulting:


“Historical analysis showed us that pandemics are usually V-shaped (sharp recessions that recover quickly enough to provide little damage to home prices), and some very cutting-edge search engine analysis by our Information Management team showed the current slowdown is playing out similarly thus far.”

Given this situation, if you are thinking about purchasing a home this year, the best thing you can do right now is use this time to get pre-approved for a mortgage, which you can do from the comfort of your home. Pre-approval will help you better understand how much you can afford so that you can confidently do the following two things when you are ready to buy:


1. Gain a Competitive Advantage


Today’s low inventory, like we have seen recently and will continue to see, means homebuyers need every advantage they can get to make a strong offer and close the deal. Being pre-approved shows the sellers you are serious about buying a home, which is always a bonus in your corner.


2. Speed Up the Home Buying Process


Pre-approval can also accelerate the home buying process so you can move faster when you are ready to make an offer. Being ready to put your best foot forward when the time comes may be the leg-up you need to cross the finish line first and land the home of your dreams.



Bottom Line

Pre-approval is the best thing you can do right now to be in a stronger position to buy a home when you are ready. Connect today with a real estate professional to get the process started.
