Buying a home is an exciting and complex adventure.

When making the type of investment that buying a home requires, you deserve to have all the latest market information and the very best advice; both of which I can provide.
STEP BUYING PROCESS
Define Your Goals
Determine Why you’re buying a home. Is it a permanent for you and your family, an investment or a second home? Whatever the reason it is important that you buy with an eye on the resale investment potential.
Schedule a Consultation
It is important to work with a Realtor® who is not only committed to working with you, but who is also dedicated to you finding the right home.
Research Your Options
Determine what you can afford and where. Buying and financing a home is closely related so it is important to review your current financial situation to understand how much you can afford.
Make Your Plans
Set priorities and create a plan. Research your housing and mortgage options as well as create the appropriate action, plan and timeline for moving forward.
No matter your experience, circumstance, or reason for buying, it is always in your best interest to be prequalified for a loan before starting to search for a home. The current rates, approval, and unexpected challenges should be addressed before you have a serious intention of buying.
95% of all buyers use the internet to start their search for homes. Typically taking an average of 12 weeks to research the possibilities they believe their budget can match. However; I can assist you in narrowing down your search by reviewing your ‘must haves’ and ‘will likes’; making recommendations based on knowledge and experience.
Make An Offer
When you find the right home, it is time to prepare and draft an offer to purchase. This offer protects and represents your interest, while remaining legally binding on final acceptance. There are many components to an offer, but I will explain the entire process so that you’re comfortable with the steps involved.
Once both parties accept the sales contract and its contingencies, they will start to work towards removing them. I will advise you on what contingencies can be removed based on the results of the home inspection, once the appropriate due diligence has been completed.
Prepare For Closing
After all the contingencies have been removed, it becomes the responsibility of the legal and financial institutions to prepare all necessary paperwork. I will make arrangements to see the home the day before closing to ensure the home is in the condition per the contract agreement.
Moving into your new home is an exciting time, but can also be stressful; even if your hiring professionals. I will provide you with resources, recommendations and some important insight to make it seamless as possible.
