What's the Home Buying Process Like?
The buying process is comprised of many steps, but it all starts with a conversation.
During this initial consultation, we'll identify your needs, priorities and lifestyle preferences, from the neighborhoods you favor to the most appealing schools.
We'll also discuss your financing options.
Having a clear understanding of what you can afford for a down payment as well as ongoing monthly expenditures such as the mortgage, utilities and real estate taxes will help clarify and expedite your home search.
Your sales agent will also facilitate the process of pre-qualifying you for a mortgage and securing the most competitive rate and terms on your loan.
Using your needs and preferences as a guide, your agent will identify properties that may be a match for you.
Together, we'll visit these and discuss the potential of each, as well as what you like and dislike about them.
Once you find the home of your dreams, your sales agent will carefully review comparable homes recently sold in the community to determine an appropriate offer, negotiate terms and respond to possible counter-offers.
When your offer is accepted, we'll help you finalize other key decisions such as home inspections and possession dates.
We'll also offer guidance in choosing an attorney to represent you at closing and connect you with reputable moving companies.
