The Buying Process

October 29, 2015

When choosing to buy a home, whether it be your first home or your retirement home, you’ve made a huge life decision! Starting this process can sometimes be overwhelming but here are some helpful steps to guide you through this process successfully.

The first step in your journey is to find a loan officer that you are comfortable working with. They will dig into your financial status and assess how much you can afford towards your new home. Once you have their per-approval letter, you are on your journey to find the perfect realtor that fits your needs.

After signing all the necessary documents, you may begin looking at as many homes as your desire until you find your new dream. After writing an offer and negotiating terms, your halfway through your home buying process! You will now get the opportunity to have a home inspection and you may renegotiate your terms or rescind your offer if you feel it’s necessary. After the home inspection allowance is over, the process is considered pending and all property title work, funding from your lender, and your lender will also require an appraisal be done on the property to ensure the price is fair market value. After all paperwork and approval is complete, you may now attend your closing where you will sign all the proper documents to become the new homeowner.
