CONNECT WITH A GREAT LENDER
I can recommend experienced people who can get the job done for you with no drama.
You can interview a few to see who you are most comfortable working with.
The lender you choose can pre-approve you for your loan so you can shop with confidence.
FIND THE HOME YOU LOVE
PICK THE HOMES YOU WANT TO SEE
I’ll set up a home search website for you with all the homes in your budget that might fit your needs.
I’ll update you whenever there are new options available.
You can browse the available homes, mark them as favorites, possibilities, or rejects, and record any notes you want.
We can adjust your search as you clarify your preferences.
EXPLORE INTERESTING HOMES
Let me know whenever you identify homes you would like to visit.
I’ll set up showings that fit your schedule.
You can bring your family and trusted advisers with you if you want.
CHOOSE THE HOME YOU WANT TO BUY
There’s no pressure to choose quickly.
We’ll see enough that you can compare.
No home is perfect, but you can choose the one that fits you best.
We will keep looking at homes until you find the one you want to buy.
SECURE & ENJOY YOUR HOME
BOX OUT OTHER BUYERS
I’ll write an offer that works for you.
We’ll negotiate to reach agreement with the sellers at terms you approve.
Once they have signed your contract, the sellers have to sell it to you unless you reject it because of something you learn.
You’ll give earnest money (about 1% of the price) to be held by a neutral party until closing.
INVESTIGATE AND APPROVE YOUR HOME
I will gather important information for you to review.
I will help you find answers to all your questions.
We’ll thoroughly inspect your new home and negotiate with the sellers to resolve issues we find.
Your lender will have an appraiser confirm that you are paying a fair price.
If you aren’t happy with what we find out along the way, you can cancel without penalty.
COMPLETE YOUR PURCHASE
I’ll help you know what to do to be ready for your big day.
We’ll meet at the title company to sign all of your paperwork and transfer the money to the sellers.
You’ll get the keys, so you can move in to enjoy your new home!
