See our 8 step process for buyers.
Beginning your home search can be an overwhelming and daunting task. Because of that, our team makes sure that you, and all other potential buyers, understand each of the 8 steps that we take to make the process as easy and painless as possible. By the end of your search, with our support and guidance, you will live happily ever after in your new, dream home.
Let's get to know each other! We’ll meet together for a Buyer Consultation to focus your search and determine what you want and need in a home. We will talk about the 5 ways we help buyers beat out the competition!
We’ll introduce you to our mortgage partner, who can help you determine your buying price range with confidence. We will show you how simple all the paperwork can be. The lender will need various documents from you such as pay stubs, W2’s, 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. We’ll talk about how the budget will work and what kind of a payment you will be comfortable with to ensure you will be viewing houses in your price range. This is a vital step in the home buying process!
Our agents get to know you — Need to move for a job? Want a shorter commute? Getting married? Having a baby? Need to upgrade or downsize? At this stage in the process, we’ll send you notifications about the listings that you’re most likely to be excited about. Be sure to let us know if one (or more) jumps out at you so that we can skip to the next step and schedule a viewing. We will be there for you every step of the way.
Here’s where the buying process gets really fun! We’ll schedule viewings of the homes that you’ve loved from our listing alerts. We’ll talk about the homes and all they have to offer and make sure that we find you the perfect home.
When you’re ready to make an offer, we will write an offer and send it to the listing agent to present 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 finish getting your financing in order and move forward to the next step!
The sellers accepted your offer, and the home is going through inspection and appraisal. The inspection makes sure that everything in the home is functioning properly and there are no major issues inside the home. The appraisal guarantees that the price of the property matches the condition of the property. These are the last steps before the shiny keys to your home are placed in your hand... for good!
Get excited because it’s time to close on your home! This process includes going through all of the final paperwork and signing your name (a lot!). Don't forget to bring all of the paperwork you’ve collected along the way and your down payment.
Congratulations! You get the keys to your new home 24 hours after you have signed and get to start making memories in your new home!
