Our 7 Step Process

Buying a home can be stressful and overwhelming. Because of that, our team focuses on making the process as easy and painless as possible.

Buyer Consultation

Let’s get to know each other! Once you’re ready to work with our team, we’ll meet together for a Buyer Consultation to focus your search and determine what you want and need in a home.

Pre-Qualification

We’ll introduce you to our trusted mortgage company, who can help you determine your buying price range with confidence. The lender will do a full review of your finances and then tell you what you will be able to borrow in order to purchase a home.

This is a vital step in the home buying process!

The Home Search

Our agents get to know you — Need to move for a job? Want a shorter commute. Need to upgrade or downsize?

At this stage in the process, we’ll send you notifications about the listings that you’re most likely to be excited about. Be sure to let us know if one (or more) jumps out at you so that we can skip to the next step and schedule a viewing.

Write an Offer

When you’re ready to make an offer, your agent will present a written offer to the seller. And while everyone loves getting their offer accepted right away, the seller could come back to us with a counter offer, or reject your initial offer all together.

We’re happy to walk you through each of these possibilities and exactly how to handle them. Once the offer is accepted, it’s time to get your financing in order and move forward to the next step!

Appraisal & Inspections

The sellers accepted your offer, and the home is going through appraisal and inspection. The appraisal guarantees that the price of the property matches the condition of the property while the inspection makes sure that everything in the home is functioning properly and there are no major issues inside.

These are the last steps before the shiny keys to your home are placed in your hand... for good!

Closing Time

Get excited because it’s time to close on your home! This process includes going through all of the final paperwork and signing your name (a lot!).

Don't forget to bring all of the paperwork you’ve collected along the way and your down payment.
