Home Buying Process

In the maze of forms, financing, inspections, marketing, pricing, and negotiating, it makes sense to work with professionals who know the community and much more. Our professionals are the local Realtors who serve your area.
2. Get a mortgage pre-approval
Most buyers need to finance their home purchase, and a consultation with a mortgage lender is a crucial step in the process. Find out how much you can afford before you begin your home search.
3. Look at homes
A quick search on our site will bring up thousands of homes for sale. Educating yourself on your local market and working with an experienced Realtor can help you narrow your priorities and make an informed decision about which home to choose. Our agents will set you up with a custom home search so you can obtain real time updates on new listings and homes that you are interested in purchasing.
4. Choose a home
While no one can know for sure what will happen to housing values, if you choose to buy a home that meets your needs and priorities, you’ll be happy living in it for years to come.
5. Make an offer
While much attention is paid to the asking price of a home, a proposal to buy includes both the price and terms. In some cases, terms can represent thousands of dollars in additional value or additional costs for buyers.We will help you get a great deal on the home and ensure the home is in great shape.
6. Open Escrow
We will guide you through the process of obtaining your home to include: doing inspections, facilitating financing, repairs, and closing.
7. Get insurance
Real estate insurance protects owners in the event of catastrophe. If something goes wrong, insurance can be the bargain of a lifetime.
