The Home Buying Process Made Easy
What Can I Afford?
The first step is to find out how much you can afford. This generally takes into account several factors including your credit, debts owed, and your overall financial situation. There are many loan options to choose from, with various terms and down payments, resulting in different payment options. Consult a qualified mortgage broker to discuss all your options and to find out how much house you are able to purchase. This step can save a lot of heart ache, and help you avoid falling in love with a home only to find out it doesn’t fit in your budget. If you don’t have a trusted source for this I can recommend several qualified mortgage professionals.
Finding The Perfect Home!
So now you know how much you can spend, so lets go shopping. Narrowing down your criteria first will help this process go much smoother. Need 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a basement? How about on a cul-de-sac, or with a huge back yard? Is close proximity toan interstate important? Lay it all out on the table and we will begin to find the perfect home for you. Do you want to start this process on your own? Many home buyers begin this step months or years in advance thanks to sites like Realtor.com and Zillow.com. Whether you use these sites or not, we can team up to find you the best home that meets all your criteria.
Contract To Closing!
Once we find you your dream home and we make the offer, the real fun begins. Whether you are buying new construction or a resale there are plenty of things to do before you close. Leave it up to a qualified Realtor to be your guide through this process from start to finish. First thing is often inspection time. Hire a qualified home inspector to give your home a thorough inspection to make sure your new home is all it’s cracked up to be. Need a recommendation for a home inspector, we’ve got you covered there too.
