The Buying Process

Following is a list of the essential components of the buying process that I will assist you with:

  • Listen to your needs regarding neighborhood(s), bedrooms and bathrooms, style and age of home, proximity to schools, garage, yard, etc.
     
  • Discuss the home buying process, and current market conditions.
     
  • Provide the names of reputable service providers you will need throughout the process (loan brokers, insurance providers, title companies, appraisers, inspectors).
     
  • Arrange an appointment with a mortgage broker to start the loan approval process.
     
  • Discuss the importance of obtaining pre-approved status before you start looking.
     
  • Provide an estimate of the cash needed to purchase a home.
     
  • Provide location-specific information about schools, transportation, shopping, and neighborhood.
     
  • Preview homes in the neighborhood(s) of your choice.
     
  • Keep you apprised of new inventory coming on the market.
     
  • Review comparable properties that have sold around homes you are interested in, so you can make informed decisions about what kind of offers to make.
     
  • Work with the seller's agent to ensure that the contract terms will accomodate time frames and conditions that the seller desires - very important in today's competitive market.
     
  • Thoroughly explain the purchase documents and customary time frames.
     
  • Negotiate the purchase on your behalf.
     
  • Arrange and attend the necessary inspections on the property, with trusted contractors and inspectors.
     
  • Negotiate needed repairs on the property with the sellers.
     
  • Keep you informed throughout the escrow process.
     
  • Schedule a final walk-through of the property to ensure repairs have been completed as negotiated.
     
  • Arrange for the signing of escrow and financial documents at the title company.
     
  • Close the escrow on your new home!
