Locate the Right Realtor
It is important to work with right real estate professional who matches your needs as this is quite possibly one of the largest purchases in your life.
We can help you by providing extensive information on the cities and neighborhoods you are interested in as well as navigate you through the home buying process.
Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage
For those buyers who need to finance their home purchase, it is important to meet with a mortgage lender in the very beginning of the home buying process. This will help determine how much you can afford as you begin your home search.
If you do not already have a mortgage lender, we are more than happy to recommend lenders that we have worked with extensively and provide excellent service.
Find a Home and Make an Offer
It is important to find the right home that suits your needs.
We can assist you by sorting through all of the home listings and data available online, and help you narrow down your search. We are also more than happy to accompany you to those homes you are most interested in. We want to ensure you are comfortable with the home and the surrounding neighborhood before making an offer.
Carefully review all disclosures associated with home you are interested in placing an offer on. We will also review the disclosures and advise you of any potential issues we see.
Finally, we will prepare the offer to the seller and use our extensive knowledge of the market and expert negotiation skills to get you the best possible price for the home.
With an accepted offer, escrow involves an outside third-party to ensure all parts of the contract for the buyer and seller are complete.
We will stay in constant communication with the escrow company, providing them with all necessary forms until the transaction is complete.
At closing, the escrow company has all paperwork associated with the home transaction signed by both the buyer and seller. The escrow company transfers your funds to the seller, and then the deed is recorded in your name with the county.
Once closing is completed and you are on record with the county, we will provide you with the keys to your new home!
