In the maze of forms, financing, home inspections, marketing, pricing, and negotiating, it makes sense to work with local real estate professionals who know the community and much more.
First we introduce you to reputable local home lenders so you can find out how much you can afford before you begin your home search.
A search on any real estate website will bring up thousands of homes for sale. Educating yourself on your local market and working with an experienced buyer agent can help you narrow your priorities and make an informed decision about which home to choose.
Once a home is selected your property will provide you with a buyers’ market value estimate and help submit a proposal to buy that includes both the price and terms. In some cases, terms can represent thousands of dollars in additional value—or additional costs—for buyers. Our buyer’s agents have negotiated hundreds of transactions and will help you navigate this process.
Next you will need to schedule a home inspection. If you are buying a home, getting a home inspection is perhaps one of the single-most important “checks” you need to conduct to make sure the home is safe and secure.
Top buyer reasons:
Peace of mind — Puts the buyer’s mind at ease that the home is in good shape.
Renegotiate — If problems do arise, the buyer can negotiate a lower price or ask the seller to make repairs.
Opt-out — If the problems are too big or unsettling, the buyer can opt-out of buying the home.
Future needs — Buyers can learn about potential maintenance and upkeep.
Before closing you will need insurance, no homeowner should be without insurance. Real estate insurance protects owners in the event of catastrophe. If something goes wrong, insurance can be the bargain of a lifetime.
Closing Day your broker will assist with final walkthrough of the property and help bring together a variety of parties who are part of the real estate transaction
After the transaction your broker can be a great source for fining local contractors and helping you acclimate to your neighborhood.
All this and you don’t have out-of-pocket $1 towards our fee. The seller pays the listing agent a fee that already takes into consideration a buyer’s broker fee.
