Cunningham Park, convenient local shopping, restaurants and entertainment are within walking distance. The availability of public transportation adds to the community’s appeal. Here are a few tips for people looking to buy a home in Fresh Meadows.
Work with a realtor who knows Fresh Meadows
The first step in finding a new home is to work with real estate professionals who know the local real estate marketplace. The professionals at Fresh Meadows Realty specialize in listing and selling homes located only in the community of Fresh Meadows.
Our licensed real estate agents work exclusively with properties in the local community. Their unsurpassed knowledge of the area provides buyers with an insider’s view of everything families need to know about Fresh Meadows, including:
- Public transportation
- Parks and playgrounds
- After-school activities and events
We actively participate in Fresh Meadows community organizations and civic associations, so what buyers learn from us comes from our hands-on experience.
Get started early with financing
The best time for buyers to begin working on financing is before they find a home to purchase. Fresh Meadows is a popular community where homes coming on the market do not last very long. It is essential for buyers to work with a lender to be pre-approved for mortgage financing.
A pre-approval lets sellers know they are working with buyers who are serious about buying a home. The real estate professionals at Fresh Meadows Realty work with their buyers to choose a lender and obtain a mortgage pre-approval.
Work with an agent who is committed to working with you
It’s always better for buyers to work with a real estate professional committed to getting them the right house at the right price. The brokers and agents at Fresh Meadows Realty do not work with a buyer if they are also working on behalf of the seller of the property. When an agent from our office negotiates an offer on behalf of a buyer, the only person that agent is working for is the buyer.
