Quick Buying Guide
All you need to know about buying a home
The home buying process in 4 easy steps
Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make in life. It can be a long and complicated process but our agents make it stress free.
Find the Right Professional
88% of 2013 homebuyers purchased their home through a real estate agent or broker because an agent has local expertise, negotiation expertise, law and contract expertise, and access to other professionals.
Organize Your Finances
Review your current finances and understand how much you have in your savings and available for a down payment, strengthen your credit score and, most importantly, get pre-approved. Make sure that you are getting pre-approved and not pre-qualified because there is a big difference between the two. Your Real Estate Advisor can connect you with the right people and help guide you throughout the process.
Define your Search Parameters
Working with your advisor will help you narrow down your home search based on: location, price, size & type, and condition. Identify what are the most important factors in your home search before you begin looking at homes to make sure you are looking at the right ones.
Offer & Escrow
When submitting an offer, your advisor will run a comparative market analysis to help you make an educated offer based on competing market prices. If your offer is accepted, there will be a lot of paperwork and inspections, but your advisor will handle every part of the transaction until escrow closes and you are handed the keys!
