Find the Right Realtor For You
Real estate is a big deal and it's a serious transaction with significant financial and emotional ramifications. It's critical that you find the right Realtor to help you find your dream property and to protect your interests. You should be 100% comfortable and confident with your Realtor.
Understand Your Budget
If you want to finance any portion of your home purchase, Sellers are going to require that any offer be submitted with a "pre-approval" letter from lender for the offer price. Even if you are buying cash, you will still need to make sure you are factoring in closing costs and the accessibility of funds.
Consult with Your Realtor
Now is the time to figure out your priorities in your dream home. This includes decisions like location (community), bedrooms and bathrooms, pool, and price. Once your Realtor understands exactly what you are looking for in a home they can help guide you in your home search.
Select Properties to See
Once you have your wishlist for your dream home, your Realtor will work with you to help select a number of properties that fit your specific and needs and setup showings. Sometimes your initial wishlist has to be changed after you view a couple of properties. Check out our property search to start your search today.
Put Offer On Your Dream Home
After you have seen properties that meet your criteria, its time to make a decision on your dream home. You will sit down with your Realtor and talk about how much you want to offer. Plus you need to know that offer is more than just price - you have to make decisions about inspections, deposits, and financing.
Negotiate and Sign the Contract
In just about every real estate transaction, there will be some back and forth on price and terms. Its important to have a Realtor that understands all the terms of the contract so you can have your interests protected. Once you have a deal in place, you will sign the contract and submit your initial deposit to the closing agent.
