This week we have three Rossmoor homes to check out while Seal Beach has five on the list that offer several different areas of the city.
By the way, if you are thinking about buying a home, one of the best things you can do to aid your cause is talk with a qualified lender well in advance of your search. That way you can find out what you qualify for and establish a comfortable price range taking into consideration such things as monthly allotments for mortgage payments, taxes, insurance and, perhaps, home owners association dues.
You will be much stronger in the eyes of sellers if you are pre-approved for the loan. One provison, though: make sure that the loan person you deal with has a history of actually closing loans. In this economy loans can be tricky, so make sure you put your fate in capable hands.
