Buying a home can be an overwhelming process. From financing to negotiating to closing, there are a lot of moving pieces that can leave homebuyers bewildered.
We’re here for you
We can help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. We know the ins and outs of the real estate industry, so you’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience.
HERE ARE SOME KEY AREAS WE CAN HELP YOU WITH:
Getting pre-approved by a lender
We have built relationships with several local and national lenders and can provide reputable options for you to interview. Once you choose a lender, you will provide them with some basic information about your income, savings, and debt. Your lender will then go over your financing options, what monthly payment amount you can afford, and what you can expect for down payment requirements and closing costs.
Choosing a home
For most buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. We can assist you in this process by offering objective information about each property you look at. From local community information like schools and zoning to home-specific details like condition and amenities, we can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
Making an offer
Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, you need to know what it’s really worth. We will research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair selling price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, we will then help you structure an offer and negotiate to get the very best deal possible.
Closing, or settlement, can be a complicated process. In our area, closings are conducted by an attorney. Normally the buyer chooses the closing attorney, and that attorney represents the buyer. Although the seller may opt to hire their own attorney, they often choose to use the buyer’s attorney for the sake of convenience. We coordinate with the lender and the attorney(s) during the closing process to ensure that everything goes smoothly and closing happens on time.
