Each step of the buying process can be complex and time-consuming, but with the right support & guidance, it is an exciting & rewarding process.
You deserve to feel understood, supported & empowered. Heres a super quick overview of the steps involved when purchasing a home:
- Determine What You Can Afford:
I'll connect you with one of my trusted lending partners to get your finances in order and determine your budget. This is an essential first step, as it will save you time, effort & unnecessary disappointment by focusing your search on properties within your budget.
- Start Your Search:
Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want/need to stay in, I can help you navigate the buying process. I will find properties that meet your criteria & send those listings directly to your inbox. We will work together to narrow down our search and take things at a pace comfortable for you & your situation.
- View Homes:
Tour properties & consider things like location, size & features. I will keep you up to date on relevant market data. Should you feel ready to move forward with a property, you will be empowered & confident in your knowledge in order to make an informed & educated decision.
- Take Your Time:
Only see 3-5 houses in one day - 3 is ideal. Seeing a lot of houses at once can be more confusing than it is convenient. Take photos & make notes after viewing each property so that you're not struggling to remember the details of each home.
- Make An Offer:
Once you find a home you love, we will discuss drafting an offer that works for you. I'll help you determine what terms and conditions are necessary & negotiate with the Sellers Realtor® on your behalf.
Expect some back-and-forth as you & the Seller work out the terms of the sale. We want to bring your vision to life while keeping your budget in mind. The right home is often a feeling. I'll help you balance emotion & budget so that you never overpay.
- Close The Deal:
I will track deadlines, gather paperwork & coordinate any necessary visits. This could include inspections, appraisals & final walk-throughs. I will connect you with a Real Estate lawyer and it's off to the races! You will sign the necessary paperwork with your lawyer, pay your closing costs, set up utilities & get the keys to your new home!
