Q: In today’s difficult real estate market, what advice can you offer someone who is looking to purchase a property in the Seattle metro area?

A: In today’s real estate market it’s a big advantage to go beyond getting a pre-approval letter. Get a “credit” approval to make your offer stronger in a multiple offer situation. Then get credit approved for more than the list price…in case multiple offers drive the price higher than the list price. And finally, get a pre-inspection. It is not advisable to buy without an inspection anyhow. But this speeds up the process.
