8 Steps to Buying a Home

Let me assist you every step of the way.

Decide to Buy

Purchasing a home is an important step that can provide you several financial benefits.

Give Me a Call

When you are ready to begin looking for a home, give me a call! You can be certain that I will do my best to assist you in finding your dream home.

Secure Financing

It is important to know your realistic price point and financial options available to you. I will be happy to provide you with preferred financing consultants to assist you in this process.

Find Your Home

There are a lot of homes out there! I will assist you in pinpointing the right one that will meet all of your important needs, and as many of your additional wants as possible.

Make an Offer

Once you have found the perfect home, I will provide you with information in order to make an informed decision on determining the home’s market value. I will also guide you through the offer process making sure that you are well informed.

Perform Due Diligence

It is important to know what you are getting into before completing the purchase. Understanding what improvements have been made and what items might need to be corrected are key. I will provide you with preferred licensed inspectors for you to choose from in order to assist in this process.

Close on Your New Home!

Once you have agreed upon a price you are comfortable with and are satisfied with the results of the due diligence process, you are almost there! Just remember to keep an eye on your credit score and finances while you wait to close on your home. Keep your financials steady and stay away from large purchases.

Protect Your Investment

Congratulations on your new home! It is now time to setup your maintenance plan in order to protect your investment for years to come. If you ever need advice on finding contractors, repair services, or even tracking your home’s current value, be sure to give me a call. I am always happy to help!
