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.
I can help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. When working with me, you’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience.
Here are some of the key areas that I can help you with:
1. Getting Pre-approved
I’ll help you find a great lender. Then, by providing your lender with information about your income, savings, and debt, he or she can assist you in getting pre-approved. The 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.
2. Choosing Your New Home
For most buyers, finding a home is an emotional process. I can assist you in this process by offering accurate, objective information about the properties you look at. From community information like the local schools and zoning to specific details about the home, like condition and amenities, I can help you find exactly what you’re looking for.
3. Making the Offer
Once you’ve found the home you want, I will research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, I will help you structure an offer and negotiate to get the very best deal possible.
4. The Closing
The closing can be a bit complicated. The title company usually handles the process, but I will ensure that you have everything you need prior to the day of closing.
