Buying a Home

We understand that buying a home can be intimidating.  It’s not something you do every day.  We know you don’t take the decision lightly and neither do we!  Our goal is to make the process easy for you as we guide you through the process every step of the way. 

Whether you’re looking for your first home, buying an investment property, upgrading your current residence, or downsizing the right agent can be the difference in making your dreams come true.

8 Steps to Buying your home

Meet with one of us to talk about your wants and needs. We’ll walk you through the home search and help you understand the process of writing an offer in today’s market.​

Conventional loan? FHA Loan? Cash? Hard Money? We have experience working with buyers with all types of financing and know how to work with you whether you need to get a loan or you’re prepared with cash. In addition, our partnerships allow us to refer you to top lenders who can make the process easy for you.

Once we have discussed your wants and needs, we will get you set up on an automated home search. The search will send you homes that meet your criteria as soon as they are listed. You’ll know about new listings as soon as they hit the market. When you spot homes you really like, let us know and we’ll move to the next step, viewing homes.​

Are you ready to see your favorite homes in person? We’ll schedule home viewings with you and discuss the features of different properties to make sure you find your dream home.

You found the home you love, the next step is putting in an offer.  We’ll write the offer and send it to the listing agent. Once the seller receives your offer from their agent, they have the choice to accept, reject, or counter your offer. We will walk you through each of the possibilities and help you take the next steps.

Yay! Your offer got accepted! Next comes the inspection and appraisal. Inspections ensure everything in the home works properly and identifies any potential safety issues. An appraisal evaluates the value of the compared to the sales price. 

Once the inspection and appraisal are completed and approved, everything is set for closing. This process includes final signatures on all the paperwork. After you’ve signed the paper work, the contract is set to fund and record.

Congratulations! You just finished buying a home. We’ll get you the keys when the sale closes and you can start moving in and making memories in your dream home.
