Buying a Home

With the growth of the internet, buying a home is easier than ever. In fact, homes can now be purchased over the internet!  Links to our Multiple Listing Service can narrow your search and  Virtual Tours can show the home and neighborhood. Purchase offers and contracts can be completed through email and sale closings completed by express mail. But, with the advance of technology, it is even more important than ever to have a Realtor that you can trust.  Even with all of the technology, nothing really is the same as being here to select the home of your choice, but with the help of a trusted realtor, you can buy the home of your dreams whether you come to this area or not.

Buying a home can be one of your most significant investments in life. Not only are you choosing your dwelling place,  you are most likely investing a large portion of your assets into this venture. The more prepared you are at the outset, the less overwhelming and chaotic the buying process will be. The goal of this  is to provide you with detailed information to assist you in making an intelligent and informed decision.  Remember, if you have any questions about the process, I'm only a phone call or email away! 

Starting The Home Search Process
A realtor may work with you as a Buyer's Agent or as a Sub-agent of the Seller; be sure to discuss these agency relationships with your agent(s) at your first substantive meeting as you will be required by law to sign an Agency Disclosure Agreement at that time.

  Know how much you can spend. Determine how much you want to pay for a new home.
If financing will be required, it is recommended that you obtain mortgage pre-approval from a qualified lender prior to beginning your home search. Often attached with a written offer, a pre-approval letter will give your offer merit in the eyes of a seller, and may allow you to be more flexible if a quick closing is in both parties' best interest.

Choosing legal counsel You should also select an attorney at this time.
It is recommended that you choose an attorney who is experienced in representing purchasers of real estate. If you don't have an attorney already for this purpose, your agent(s) can usually give you names of several highly regarded real estate attorneys that you can interview.
