Buying Process

The buying process

Step 1: Are you ready to make this move?

This is a huge emotional and financial decision. Talk to a Realtor to see what this entails.

 Step 2: Find a Realtor.

You are going to need a professional that knows the market how to guide you through the maze of paperwork and procedure.

 Step 3: Get pre-approved

Talk to a mortgage professional and find out what you can afford. You don't want to fall in love with a house only to find out it will break your bank.

 Step 4: Look for the right home!

Work with a Realtor to educate yourself on the current marketing and what's out there. This is the fun part!

 Step 5: Pick a winner!

Find the home that fits all your needs, most of your wants and fits in your budget. Your real estate agent will help you with this to guide you through & find you the best option for you.

 Step 6: Get your financial ducks in a row.

Talk with your mortgage lender and your Realtor to make sure you are educated on closing costs, taxes and interest.

 Step 7: Make the offer!

Have your Realtor write up an offer with price and terms that suit your needs.

 Step 8: Title & Escrow.

A third party will insure the title of the property and make sure the contract is being met by all parties.

 Step 9: Closing!

The escrow professional will call you or your Realtor and give you the good news that the home is yours!

 Step 10: Move in!

Buy some pizza, invite your friends and make this house your home.  ENJOY IT!
