Decide When to Buy
There is never a wrong time to buy the right home. The key is finding the right buy and taking the time to carefully evaluate your finances. A home purchase is an important step that can provide many advantages. Purchasing your own home is a great investment that can deliver several financial benefits – equity build up, value appreciation, automatic savings plan – not to mention a new sense of pride!
Hire a Trusted Agent
When you’re looking for a real estate professional to help you, know that above all else, good agents put their clients first. As your agent I will be sure to educate you about the current conditions of the market, analyze what you want and what you need in your next home and coordinate the work of other needed professionals throughout the process. I will be with you every step of the way.
Analyze and Secure Financing
To make the financing process as painless as possible, I will introduce you to a preferred financing consultant and suggest getting pre-approved before we begin your house hunting.
Find Your Home
As your agent, I will help you more accurately pinpoint homes that fit your criteria. The right home will meet all your important needs, and as many of your additional wants as possible.
Make an Offer
My job is to give you information on other properties in the neighborhood to help you ensure you make an informed decision when it comes to price. Before making an offer we look at the list price, market analysis, and improvements made to the home to determine true value.
Talk to the Experts
Together, we will review improvements and challenges within your home. This way you’ll know what you are getting into before you complete the purchase. Knowing what work has and has not been done to your home is important information to have in the buying process.
Once all of the due diligence has been performed, we are in the home stretch. However, we still need to be mindful of finances, credit and stay in contact with the lender.
Protect the Investment
If buying a new build, you have coverage via the builders warranties for the first year. However, for a resale property, be sure to consider purchasing a home warranty upfront and perform regularly scheduled routine maintenance.
