Are you ready to buy?

You are finally at that stage in life where you are contemplating buying a home. Whether you are buying your first home or your 5th, the decision is still a huge one to make. Maybe you are ready to leave your apartment and the world of endless rent payments, or you are starting a family and want to invest.

Whatever the reason is that you are interested in buying a home, you have to make sure you are prepared. You should evaluate and build your credit score, keep a file of all necessary documents you may need, and wait on expensive purchases.

1. Find An Agent

When buying a property, you need a trustworthy and experienced real estate agent who can guide you through paperwork, avoid silly mistakes, and find you suitable properties.

2. Narrow Your Search

Make sure you construct a list of the things you want in your home. Whether you want a lake-front property or a 3-bedroom house, or both, you must establish search criteria.

3. Inspections & Appraisals

Once you find your dream home and place an offer, we highly recommend scheduling an inspection to find any underlying issues.

4. Property Insurance

If you are obtaining a mortgage, you will need property insurance. Make sure you shop around and consider the best rates. Inquire about discounts and deductibles as well.

5. Final Walk-Through

Before closing, make sure you are observant at your final walk-through. Check for any extra items and ensure everything included in your purchase agreement is present.

6. Closing

Closing is when the property will officially be yours. After signing documents for lending and bringing the closing costs in a certified bank check, you can claim your keys.

Are you ready to sell?

If you decide to sell your property, it is essential to ensure this is a sound decision. Whether you are looking to invest your money or moving your family to a different school district or state, we can help your selling process go smoothly.

Before listing your property, we will advise you on the best possible time and market for your specific home or building. With our team, you will know exactly how much you can get for your property. We will work hard to optimize your profits so that you can move on to the next step in your life.

1. Choose An Agent

Unless you choose to sell your property independently, you need to choose a reputable and dependable agent. We can help you through the extensive paperwork, maximize your property’s exposure, and help you find the right buyers.

2. Prepare to sell

Increase your property’s chances to sell by maintaining your landscape, decluttering rooms, cleaning, performing any repairs, and staging your home for showings and photos. We have the resources and skills to get your home sold quickly.

3. Accepting an offer

As your trusted real estate agents, we will help you determine which offer is best for you. Sometimes it’s not always beneficial to go with the most expensive offer. We can support you through complex negotiations and contingencies.

4. Inspections & Appraisals

Along with a property condition disclosure, buyers may order an inspection to double-check things. You should make sure all repairs are handled before listing your home so that an inspection won’t hurt your home’s chances of selling.

5. Closing

During closing, you will have an agent who will ensure all paperwork is finalized and the title is clear to close. Your title should have no encumbrances by the closing date. Any new encumbrances will be included in the title.

6. Buying your next home

When the sale of your property is finalized, you may need to find a new place to reside. We can help you find the next home of your dreams that suits your new needs. Trust our REALTORS® to find the perfect property for you.
