You want to feel confident when buying a new home, right? A huge part of feeling confident during the process is fully understanding how everything works. This is why we have a buyer's consult with every homebuyer we work with. We want you to understand the stuff that's not as fun, especially the money. At the end of the buyer's consult, you'll understand the actual costs of buying a home. You'll know the closing costs and how much you can afford to pay monthly for your new home. We'll set expectations up front and chat about how the entire process will work so you can feel confident right from the very beginning.
Now that we have shared exactly how the process works, it's time for you to share with us what you are looking for. What are your top priorities? How many bedrooms do you need? Are you looking for a pool? Is there a specific neighborhood you want to be in? By asking these question at the beginning we'll be able to focus on homes that meet your needs and avoid spending time looking at ones that don't.
This is where the fun begins! Based on your needs, desires, and budget, we'll schedule a bunch of appointments then head out and look at homes together. We understand how competitive the home buying process can be, so we have a showing agent on our team dedicated to scheduling appointments and making sure you see new homes as soon as they hit the market.
Writing an offer is as simple as signing a document and filling out paperwork. Negotiating, on the other hand, isn't quite as simple. It can be a little confusing and overwhelming to some!
That is why we are here! We love negotiating and our track record proves that we are successful in getting our clients the best price and value possible.
That’s our goal, at all times. Our focus is on your experience, which we know will, in turn, create future opportunities for us to work for you and earn your referral business. So your savings today equals a longer term reward for us down the road. 🙂
Between writing an offer and closing there is a period of time where we conduct inspections, resolve any issues and make sure the home meets your needs and standards. This is called "Due-Diligence" and it typically lasts about 7 to 10 days.
When you close on the home, it's legally yours. Congratulations! Now it's time to get the moving boxes ready! Once the previous owners move out and you move in, then you officially possess the home.
