This meeting will allow for you to become more comfortable with us. At this time we will build the parameters of the home search together, review the process of purchasing a home, and answer any questions that you may have. Using the agreed upon criteria, we will begin emailing you a list of homes for sale.

Pre-Approval

This is one of the most important steps in the home buying process. Knowing your budget helps us understand which homes to show you. Also, offers will not be presented to sellers unless accompanied by a mortgage pre-approval letter or proof of funds (POF) statement for cash buyers.

By physically visiting homes, you get a better idea if it is a good fit for you. This can also help you narrow down the factors you are using to choose a home. It is also a great opportunity to ask your agent questions about the property. The average buyer sees 7-12 homes before making a decision on a home to purchase.

Negotiations are typically handled over the phone or via email. Your agent’s fiduciary duty is to you, so they will do their best to get you the best deal.

inspection-whd
Inspection

You will typically have about 5-10 days to complete the home inspection, dependent on the conditions of the purchase agreement. We have a list of trusted inspectors that we provide to our clients, but you may use whomever you choose. Any issues raised by the inspection that you want addressed by the seller will need to be negotiated.
