Ready for a New Home?
Step 1 – CONDUCT A NEEDS ANALYSIS
We know the home buying experience can be fraught with mystery. Our experienced Real Estate Professionals will leverage expertise, local market knowledge, and key industry partnerships to ease you through the process of finding your dream home. We have been down this road multiple times, so we will first ask the necessary questions and gather the important information we need to kick off your journey to homeownership. Let’s get started!
Step 2 – GET YOUR FINANCES IN ORDER
At this stage, our job is to maneuver all the financial pieces to ensure you are on a strong financial foot when that dream home becomes available. Our recommended network of lenders and financial experts will help tighten up your credit, determine exactly how much you can afford for both a home and a down payment, and make sure you are formally pre-approved for a loan, all with the goal of solidifying your position as a serious market contender.
Step 3 – SHOP FOR A HOME
Now for the fun part! We will help you draw up a “wish list” of everything you are looking for in not just your new home, but your new community as well. We will match your must-haves with your budget and then draw on our local expertise and network of industry colleagues to help you find a place that is everything you wished for. Shopping for a home is exciting, so just have fun with it!
Step 4 – MAKE AN OFFER AND NEGOTIATE
You have found “the one” and you are ready to make an offer. We will help you formulate a fair, data driven purchase offer based on in-depth market analysis, and draw up the purchase agreements. Then, we will leverage smart negotiating skills to guide you through contingencies and ensure you do not spend any more than you need to. And, should things not work out with one offer, we will be ready with a game plan for the next.
Step 5 – CONDUCT A PROPERTY INSPECTION
Once your offer is selected, you can elect to inspect the property. We will send an independent licensed home inspector to fully check the home’s condition. A home inspection is a powerful negotiating tool. If issues arise, we will work with you to develop strategies on how best to proceed. You are getting close, and you do not want to set yourself up for a houseful of headaches.
Step 6 – GET FINAL FINANCING APPROVAL
This part can get complicated, but we know from experience how to keep the crucial final stages of loan approval from becoming overwhelming. We will regularly monitor the progress of your transaction and keep you fully aware of unexpected funds that might be expected from you. We will also work with your lender to make sure all the necessary paperwork is complete as we move closer to a smooth closing.
Step 7 – CONGRATULATE YOURSELF ON YOUR NEW HOME!
Making it through escrow can seem like a mountain of details but the view from the top is work it. Expect to sign a ton of paperwork before you get there, and we will hold your hand through every step of the process. A few days before closing, we will conduct a final walk-through and then once both parties sign closing statements and the property has recorded, the keys are yours!
