What To Expect
4 Steps to Buying A Home
Buying a house is undoubtedly one of the largest financial transactions most people will ever make, and many buyers don’t know where to begin. I am here to support you each step of the way so that you can focus more time and energy on the exciting aspects of finding your dream home. I’ll help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties that match your specifications, and assist you through the entire purchasing process.
01. Understand Your Goals
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you wish to buy a home. Is it to start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To upsize or downsize? Be specific about the kind of home you’d like and where you would like to be. Separate the “must haves” from the “nice to haves.”
02. Determine Your Purchasing Power
Once you have addressed the above needs and wants, your next step is to determine your budget and, if needed, get pre-qualified for a mortgage. I’ll happily refer you to a mortgage professional in my network to get you started.
03. Find Your Dream Home
Once we’ve determined your budget, I will use the tools and resources in my toolbox to help you find properties that suit your needs.
04. Final Details
My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, memorable, and successful. In helping you complete your purchase, I’ll put you in touch with professionals in my network—including lawyers, movers, and cleaners—to make sure you continue to be well taken care of. I will help you to complete your financing and inspections and to close on the transaction.
