Close and Celebrate!
Meet in person and create a wishlist.
Let’s get to know each other! Once you’re ready to work with our team, we’ll meet together for a Buyer Consultation to focus your search and determine what you want and need in a home.
Determine and set your budget.
We’ll introduce you to a few different lenders (Or you can use your own!), 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, 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!
Schedule showings and attend open houses.
Here’s where the buying process gets really fun! We’ll go to local open houses together and schedule viewings of the homes that you’ve loved from our listing alerts. We’ll talk about how the budget will work and make sure that we find you the perfect home.
Find the home of your dreams and write an offer.
When you’re ready to make an offer, your agent 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 counter offer, or reject your initial offer altogether. We’re 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 inspection.
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!
It’s time to get excited and celebrate.
Get excited because it is time to take possession of your house. All of your hard work is coming to fruition. During this process, we will meet with you to do a final walk-through to make sure that the condition of your new home is exactly the same way as when you first fell in love with it.
