Buying a Home

Your Road Map to Buying a Home

Click on our guide below to get started! 

1. Find the Right Agent

You never want to start the home search without a knowledgeable real estate agent in your corner. Find someone who knows the market, how to negotiate, and the ins and outs of a transaction.

2. Get Pre-Approved

Before you start looking for your new home, you want to sit down with a lender and get pre-approved. This will help you determine your price range and set you up for success when making an offer.

3. Wish List

Once you have a pre-approval, the search is on! Your real estate agent will help you not only search for homes and show them to you but help answer questions and prepare the strongest offer when the time comes.

4. Make An Offer

When you find the perfect home for you, your agent should help you review comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, and help you structure an offer and negotiate a price and contract you are happy with.

5. Inspect and Appraise the House

Once you are under contract on your new home, you will want to have the home inspected, appraised, and review other due diligence documents to insure you are comfortable with the home purchase.

6. Finalize Negotiations & Loan

Final negotiations will be made regarding any inspection, appraisal, or other issues, and the loan will be put through final underwriting. Once your loan is approved, you are ready to close on your new home!

7. Closing Day!

Once the loan is approved, you are ready to head to the closing table. Real estate documents and loan documents will need to be signed and money collected before you get those keys in hand.

8. Beyond The Closing

Our job is not done at the closing table. We will follow up with recommendations for contractors, host client appreciation events, and provide a complimentary market review.
