Decide which home fits you best.

Once you have scoped out homes that looked like they might be a fit, our agents will provide you with all the information you need to narrow down the list and pick the home that best fits your needs.

Speak with a mortgage broker.

It’s always a good idea to discuss your financial situation with a mortgage broker before you begin looking for homes – that way you’ll know exactly how much home you can afford (and avoid falling in love with a home outside of your price range).  If you’d like, we’d be happy to provide you with contact information of several mortgage brokers we’ve worked with personally.

Make an offer on a home.

When two parties are negotiating over the price of a home, it helps to have a Realtor on your side that can represent your interests to the fullest.

Sign the contract and make a deal.

After all the terms have been agreed upon, from the price of the property to the closing date, you are officially “under contract” to purchase the property.  However, the steps discussed below must still be taken before you officially own your new home.

Have the property inspected.

During this period, you will have the property inspected by a licensed inspector and negotiate with the seller regarding any issues with the property that may be revealed during the inspection.

Negotiate for repairs to the property.

It is not unusual for an inspection to reveal problems with the property that were not disclosed (or known) before you offered to purchase the home.  These issues can range from simple cosmetic preferences to serious structural defects.  Typically, such problems are unknown to the seller and may only be found during an inspection.  In the event that issues with the home become obvious or are suspected during the inspection, you have the right to ask the seller to either make the necessary repairs before closing or provide you with a monetary credit at closing so that you can have the repairs made.
