From developing your budget to signing your name on the dotted line, learn more about the home buying process by downloading my guide and discussing next steps with me!
Before you start looking, consider why you want to buy a home. Are you tired of renting? Do you want to buy an investment property? Figuring out why you want to purchase a home will help you make important decisions down the road. Considering what you want and need out of your home will help you narrow down your home search as well. What neighborhood do you want to live in? How many bedrooms do you need? Knowing your preferences can help with filtering out homes that don’t fit your criteria.
Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you may ever make. Whether you’re buying your first home, relocating or just moving down the street — you want a trusted professional by your side like me! Working with me will make this process easier, I will help guide you through the home search, purchase agreements, inspections, closing matters and more. I have your best interests at heart and I can ease some of your stress and can help make it go as smoothly as possible.
Knowing your budget up front helps you focus your search and can save you both time and stress. Talking to a mortgage professional can help you to determine your buying power. They can help you to find out how much you can afford, how much you should put towards a down payment, and can walk you through loan options and other costs or fees associated with purchasing a home. I have several trusted loan officers that I can refer to you who will explain your best options.
Once you find a home you’re interested in, I will negotiate a fair offer based on comparable homes in the area. If your offer is accepted, you’ll make an initial down payment and be officially under contract. During the due-diligence period between signing the purchase agreement and closing on your home, I will keep you on target regarding our obligations of your contract including ordering and performing all necessary inspections.
This is the final step of your home buying journey. Closing is the official transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer. About a week prior to our closing date, you will sign your mortgage paperwork to solidify your purchase. Once we have reached the final closing, you officially become a homeowner and will be handed the keys to your new home so you can begin making memories.
Once you’ve defined your home search goals, you and I have discussed them, and have spoken with a mortgage professional to see what your buying power is — you’re ready to find your dream home! In addition to my local knowledge and experience, I offer online tools that can help make your initial search as easy as possible.
