1. FINANCING

Speak to a reputable lender who will help you find the perfect loan product that best meets your needs and provide a pre approval letter. This is required when submitting an offer to purchase a home. 

I work with some of the most trusted lenders in the industry. Click below to my list of preferred service providers.

2. CONTACT ME

My primary job is to educate buyers on the process, the market, and make them aware of the choices that may need to be considered. 

Once a buyer has been pre-approved by a lender, I have an initial needs assessment meeting with buyers where we put together a profile of their ideal home and start searching. Technology has greatly facilitated the house hunt, but with such low inventory, many times I will reach out to my network to find a home before it hits the market.

3. FIND YOUR HOME

There are many benefits to starting the search process online. You can view many homes and their details, take video tours and access neighborhood info. However, it’s also important to view homes in person.

While their property details may seem similar online, homes can actually be very different in terms of layouts, design, workmanship and other aspects. In addition, you should ideally view homes with the help of an experienced Realtor who will notice things you might have missed and provide expert analysis.

4. MAKE AN OFFER

Once the ideal home has been identified, I guide buyers through the process of writing and submitting an offer and will negotiate on their behalf.

Negotiations happen not just around purchase price, but also around terms such as closing date or seller contribution to buyer closing costs. I have proven negotiation strategies that give my buyers the upper hand in such a competitive market. Once both parties have reached an agreement the contract is accepted and bound and the process continues.

5. CONTINGENCIES

Once the contract has been executed the buyer and seller work towards satisfying the contingencies found within the purchase and sales agreement for the protection of the buyer. The buyer is entitled to obtain a home inspection and to negotiate repairs with the seller.

Once an agreement has been reached the inspection contingency can be removed. The same is true for the appraisal and financing contingencies. The buyer works with their lender to process the loan and the lender orders a professional appraisal of the home to ensure its value.

6. CLOSING DAY

Get home owners insurance, close and move in! Once all contingencies have been removed from the purchase and sales agreement, the buyer gets home owner’s insurance and is ready to close on their home. When money has been exchanged and necessary paperwork signed, ownership is transferred to the buyer and they receive keys to their new place.
