11 Steps towards Buying a Home

How each stage of the process works

Hire a Realtor

Buying a home involves some technical obstacles that a realtor can assist with due to their experience and expertise in the industry. Of course there's always the option to go it alone, but bear in mind that seller probably has a Realtor covering their interest.

Determine Your Budget

I can help you assess your personal finances and determine your budget and what to spend on a regular basis. This will give you an idea of the homes you can afford, including the extra monthly expenditure you should anticipate

Get Pre-Approved

A pre-approval letter states that the lender is willing to loan you a specified amount to buy a house. This indicates to everyone involved, especially the seller that you're serious about buying and not just window shopping

Consider Transaction Costs

Carry out a critical assessment of your Finances to determine how much you can afford, taking into consideration income, debts, regular expenditure and other key financial information. My mortgage professional can help you produce a financial document

House Hunting

Probably the most exciting part of the process, and involves comparing different homes and neighborhoods to choose from. I recommend making a checklist of must-have features in order to help you choose the most appropriate home for you

Make an Offer

Once you've found your preferred home, I will create a comparative advantage analysis to help us make the best offer to the seller. Your pre-approval letter will show your intent and boost your consideration by the seller

Home Inspection

A home inspection is vital to uncover any potential issues with the property and provide insights that could influence your decision. An independent inspection is recommended at this stage

Arrange Repairs

Any issues revealed from the home inspection will mean renegotiating with the seller to arrange repairs or make adjustment to the price to cover the cost of fixing things yourself.

Get an Appraisal

This is a chance to identify any last minute anomalies that may hold up the sale. It is also a chance to familiarize yourself with Security, landscaping and update the utility bills. Any impediments to your move will be addressed here

Final Walkthrough

This is a chance to identify any last minute anomalies that may hold up the sale. It is also a chance to familiarize yourself with Security, landscaping and update the utility bills. Any impediments to your move will be addressed here

Close and Move In

The final walkthrough should happen as close to the close date as possible, giving you the chance to sign all required documents and retrieve the keys.

Congratulations

You are a Homeowner and can begin planning your moving arrangements at your convenience.
