Home Buying Process in 8 Steps

We understand that home buying is one of the most exciting, and sometimes stressful, experiences you’ll ever go through. Navigating the home buying process with a trusted real estate professional who will be able to provide expert guidance at each step is key. Our goal is to minimize the stress and maximize the home you get for the best price in the shortest amount of time. Here’s how:

MEET WITH AN AGENT

Discuss the type of home you are looking for, including style, price and location.

MAKE AN OFFER

An excellent agent will prepare a competitive offer based on the price and terms you choose.

FINAL DETAILS

Perform due diligence, order the appraisal, conduct an inspection, and review terms with the lender.

GET PRE-APPROVED

You will need pay stubs, W2s and bank statements. Knowing what you can afford is critical to a successful home shopping experience.

NEGOTIATE & CONTRACT

It may take a few tries to get it just right, but hang in there. You're on your way!

CLOSING

This is the transfer of funds and ownership. A title company or an attorney typically acts as an independent third part to facilitate the closing.

SCHEDULE FOR HOMES

The fun part!  Your agent will schedule showings matching your criteria and help you find the perfect home.

IN ESCROW

You and the Seller have agreed to the price and terms.  The home is effectively held for you until closing.
