Steps In The Home Buying Process…..

1) Financial Pre-approval

When you begin your search, it’s always good to know the amount of your borrowing power. By doing so, you won’t waste precious time looking at homes that are over or below your price range. We can get you started in the buying process by helping you determine your buying power; your financial reserves and your borrowing capacity.

2) Needs Assessment

3) Community Choice

Once you know how much you can and want to invest in a new home,
the next step is to determine where you want to live. If you’re
unfamiliar with the geographic areas, the schools and other
pertinent information,  we can help you narrow and focus your
search.  We have access to information about schools,
recreation, taxes, utilities, zoning and other specific details
that are important in your home buying decisions.

There are still a lot of details to take care of once you find your perfect home. We will help you write the Purchase Agreement, arrange for appropriate inspections (if necessary), assist you with any contingencies and help with finance arrangements.
