As you peruse the custom homes for sale in Covenant Hills, it’s important to take the time and care needed to find the right property for you. To help you execute a thoughtful and thorough home search, HGTV’s FrontDoor offers tips from luxury real estate specialists.
Enlist a local expert- Work with a buyer’s agent who is familiar with the Ladera Ranch area, as there tends to be more control on access to high-end properties. Visit the Covenant Hills custom sales gallery for more information.
Research beyond the photos- Some properties must be seen to be appreciated, so keep an open mind when searching online. The luxury real estate experts also suggest using Google Earth in order to familiarize yourself with the surrounding area.
Don’t break with your bank- The pros advise that you continue to use the bank you have a relationship with— as they already have your portfolio. It is also important to understand the difference between the pre-approval letter and the prequalification letter.
Document everything- Especially in the luxury real estate market, which has encountered even greater scrutiny recently, financial documentation is critical.
