The first step towards buying a new home is to meet with your REALTOR®. At the buyer consultation, we get to know you and chart a course for your home-buying process. WE'LL DISCUSS: • Home loan pre-approval • Home search process • Today's housing market • Buyer agency benefits • Your real estate needs.
2. PRE - APPROVAL
As you begin home shopping, a pre-approval letter brings you, your lender, and potential home sellers confidence in knowing what you can afford, making your offer more likely to be accepted than someone who is not pre-approved.
3. NARROWING YOUR SEARCH
We offer many different solutions to expedite and simplify the home search process. All brokers have access to the same information, the difference is the speed at which they can get you the information. We will have your search criteria set up so you receive listing alerts as soon as homes hit the market.
4. HOME SHOPPING
During the home shopping process, your buyer's agent or showing specialist will suggest homes that fits your needs and meet you to tour selected homes. The average buyer finds the right home within the first 5 homes they view. The most important key to finding the right home quickly is your feedback.
5. MAKE AN OFFER!
You've found the home of your dreams and we'll guide you through making the right offer. With the offer, you will need to provide an Ernest Money check. It is usually about 1% of the offer price and will be cashed when your offer is accepted.
Inspections and potential repairs are the number one reason sales don't close. Typically, buyers have a certain number of days in which to inspect the property and accept or reject the property based upon these mechanical and structural inspections.
Save yourself unexpected time, money and disappointment - get the house inspected.
