Determine Your FInancial Standing
Knowing your budget up front helps you focus your search and can save you both time and stress. A mortgage professional can help you find out how much you can afford, how much you should put towards a down payment, and can walk you through the loan options and other costs or fees associated with purchasing a home. Consider talking to us about a referral; we will have full understanding of your needs and can help find a professional for your particular situation.
Make an Offer
Once you find a home you're interested in, we can help negotiate a fair offer based on comparable homes in the area. If your offer is accepted, you'll make a down payment and be officially under contract. During the due-diligence period between signing the purchase agreement and closing on your home, your agent can help you understand the conditions, provisions, and obligation of your contract. They can also help guide you through the appraisal and inspection process.
Close On Your Home
This is the final step of your home buying journey! Closing is the official transfer of ownership from the seller to you, the buyer. At closing, you will sign your mortgage paperwork to solidify your purchase. From there, you officially become a homeowner and will be handed the keys to your new home so you can begin making memories.
