How to Buy a Home: A Complete Guide

Welcome to our comprehensive guide on "How to Buy a Home"! 🏡 Whether you're a first-time homebuyer or looking to upgrade your living space, this video is your ultimate resource for navigating the intricate process of purchasing a home.

Buyer Kick-Off

Meet with Your Agent

We’ll meet to discuss the buying process and your wants and needs to start your home search. We’ll also discuss client vs. customer and buyer agency. 

Buyer Agency

We'll work on your behalf

Sign the buyer agency so we can work on your behalf and start your home search. From helping identify suitable properties and negotiating favorable terms to guiding through inspections and the closing process, a buyer's agent provides expert guidance to ensure a smooth and informed home-buying experience.

Search

The fun part!

We’ll help you draw up a “wish list” of everything you’re looking for in not just your new home, but your new community as well. We’ll match your must-haves with your budget and then draw on our local expertise and network of industry colleagues to help you find a place that’s everything you wished for. Shopping for a home is exciting, so just have fun with it!

Offer

Make an Offer and Negotiate

You’ve found “the one” and you’re ready to make an offer! We’ll help you formulate a fair, data-driven purchase offer based on in-depth market analysis, and draw up the purchase agreements. Then, we’ll leverage smart negotiating skills to guide you through contingencies and ensure you don’t spend any more than you need to. And, should things not work out with one offer, we’ll be ready with a game plan for the next.

Inspection

Conduct a Property Inspection

Once your offer is selected, you can elect to inspect the property. If you do this, we’ll send an independent licensed inspector to fully check a home’s condition. Because it detects issues that aren’t apparent on a walk-through, a home inspection is a powerful negotiating tool and the best insurance you can ever get on a property. If issues arise, we’ll work with you to develop strategies on how best to proceed. You’re getting close, and you don’t want to set yourself up for a houseful of headaches.

Appraisal

An important step

Your lender will order an appraisal. Your agent will guide you through negotiation and an amendment if necessary. 

Celebrate

Congratulate Yourself on Your New Home!

Expect to sign a ton of paperwork before you get there, and we’ll hold your hand through every step of the process. A few days before closing, we’ll conduct a final walk-through, and then, once both parties sign closing statements, the keys are yours and we’ll celebrate your new home!
