The Buyer Process

  • Select Your Agent

When choosing an agent, it is important to find someone who is accessible, personable, and knowledgeable.

  • Pre-Approved vs. Pre-Qualified

Pre-approved is a confirmation that the lender will give you a commitment to support your purchase. Pre-qualified is an estimate of what you can afford. Being pre-approved makes you a more attractive candidate to the seller when making an offer.

  • Terms of Offer

Once you've found the perfect home, the offer can be written. The offer discloses what items stay with the property and also includes the terms of the contract.

  • Inspections 

A home inspection is one of the most important steps to take in making sure that your home is a sound investment and a safe place to live. When choosing an inspector always ask about licensing and credentials and if they carry insurance. Then before closing, follow the inspector's recommendations.

  • Home Warranty

A home warranty can protect you from unforeseen risks and give you peace of mind. It provides repair-or-replace coverage and can be purchased by the buyer or seller, as agreed upon in the contract.

  • Steps to Closing

A successful purchase involves several important elements including the full written disclosure, the purchase agreement, and a final walk-through. Your agent, lender and title company will guide you through all closing procedures to make your home officially yours.
