FIND YOUR DREAM HOME


OUR 8 STEP BUYING PROCESS


Beginning your home search can be an overwhelming and daunting task. Because of that, our team makes sure that you, and all other potential buyers, understand each of the 8 steps that we take to make the process as easy and painless as possible. By the end of your search, with our support and guidance, you will live happily ever after in your new, dream home.


DISCUSS YOUR CRITERIA AND CREATE A WISHLIST


Let’s get to know each other! Once you’re ready to begin your quest, we’ll schedule a Buyer Consultation to focus your search and determine what you want and need in a home.


SEARCH FOR HOMES


PRE-QUALIFICATION

We’ll introduce you to our mortgage partner, who can help you determine your buying price range with confidence. Be prepared to dig into paperwork during this part of the process such as pay stubs, W2’s, and tax returns. The lender will do a full review and then tell you what you will be able to borrow in order to purchase a home. This is a vital step in the home buying process!

MARKET REPORTS AND PROPERTY ALERTS SENT TO YOU


I will get to know you — Are you looking for a sandy beach on which to relax? Need to upgrade or downsize? Whether it’s an intimate vacation cottage for two or a gathering place for family with close friends and loved ones, you will receive tailored information to simplify your search.  At this stage in the process, I’ll send you notifications about the offerings about which you’re most likely to be excited. Be sure to let me know if one (or more) jumps out at you so that we can skip to the next step and schedule a viewing.

SCHEDULE VIEWINGS AND COMPILE DATA ON PROPERTIES

Here’s where the buying process gets really fun! We’ll schedule viewings of the homes that you’ve loved from your listing alerts. We’ll talk about how the budget will work and make sure that we find you the perfect home.


FIND THE PERFECT HOME AND WRITE AND OFFER

When you’re ready to make an offer, I will present a written offer to the seller. And while everyone loves getting their offer accepted right away, the seller could come back to us with a counteroffer, or reject your initial offer all together. I am happy to walk you through each of these possibilities and exactly how to handle them. Once the offer is accepted, it’s time to get your financing in order and move forward to the next step!


ACCEPTANCE, APPRAISAL, AND INSPECTIONS


The sellers accepted your offer, and the home is going through appraisal and inspection. The appraisal guarantees that the price of the property matches the condition of the property, while the inspection makes sure that everything in the home is functioning properly and there are no major issues inside. These are the last steps before the shiny keys to your home are placed in your hand... for good!


TIME TO CLOSE AND GET YOUR KEYS

Get excited because it’s time to close on your home! This process includes going through all of the final paperwork and signing your name (a lot!). Don't forget to bring all of the paperwork that you’ve collected along the way and your down payment.
