Steps to Purchasing a Home
- Find the Right Agent
A real estate agent can serve as your guide from start to finish during the home purchase process; don’t be afraid to reach out to our agents even when you are still not quite ready to buy.
- Get Pre-Qualified
Pre-qualification for a loan provides insight into how much you can afford, and will be required before making an offer. Many listings will require you to be pre-qualified in order to schedule a showing.
- Search for a Property
After determining your budget, it’s time to start searching for a property. Be realistic in your expectations and start by identifying what you would like versus what you really need before beginning your search.
- Make an Offer
Once you find the perfect property, one of our agents will prepare an offer based on the price and terms you choose. In competitive situations our agents will advise you on how to make your offer stand out.
Negotiating price and terms is one of the most difficult aspects of the real estate sales process. Our expert negotiators will help you obtain favorable terms and a good purchase price.
- Appraisal and Inspections
A professional licensed home inspector will examine the property to identify any repairs that are needed. Using these findings, our agents can then negotiate with the seller to get the damages repaired or the purchase price reduced.
During the closing process, both parties will sign all the necessary documents to complete the sale and transfer ownership of the property. Our agents will assist you in coordinating this crucial step from start to finish.
