Buying a home can be an overwhelming process. From financing to negotiating to closing, there are a lot of moving pieces that can leave home buyers bewildered.
A real estate agent can help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. By working with a professional agent who knows the ins and outs of the real estate industry, you’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience.
We can help you with:
Getting pre-approved by a lender
By providing us, your real estate agents, with some basic information about your income, savings, and debt, we can assist you in getting pre-approved by a reputable lender. The lender will then go over your financing options, what monthly payment amount you can afford, and what you can expect for down payment requirements and closing costs.
Choosing a home
For most buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. We balance that by offering objective information about each property you look at. From local community information like schools and zoning to home-specific details like condition and amenities, our resources and support can help you find your Dream Home!
Making an offer – Negotiating at every step
Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, we will research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair selling price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, we will then help you structure an offer and negotiate to get the very best deal possible.
Closing, or settlement, can be a complicated process, but our recommended Title Company, which handles the closing process, will help ensure that everything goes smoothly and legally.
We’re always happy to walk you through the steps to new home ownership:
