Intro to the Home Buying Process
We know that buying a home is one of your biggest financial decisions — and it can be the most emotional purchase of your life! Let us help you navigate the home buying process.
Whether you plan to buy your home with cash or obtain a loan, how you finance the purchase is a delicate process and we’re here to walk you through it. For those who need a loan, the first step is to get pre-approved — this will allow you to put together an offer quickly once you’ve found the right house.
Today’s home buyer is savvy thanks to information on the internet — this is great; however, the information found is broad, generic and sometimes out-of-date or incorrect. An agent can help you understand the local real estate in an accurate, detailed way that reflects the nuanced realities of a competitive housing market.
Unlike other purchases, buying a home is a delicate negotiation that encompasses an agreed-to set of parameters from purchase price to contractual timeframes.
Once an offer is submitted there may be back-and-forth where the Seller counters your offer asking for a different price, different terms, or a combination of both.
