What are the steps to buy a home?

When you make the decision to buy a home, you plan out a budget and contact a Realtor® to guide you through the entire process.

You will need to research and compare available Lenders to finance your home beyond your down payment. a Realtor® can suggest prospective lenders if you need assistance in choosing one. A lender conditionally qualifies you for a loan in the amount you determine you to be able to afford, so that sellers will consider you a serious and capable buyer.

Once you’re pre-qualified, your Realtor® will begin showing you possible homes to buy. When you decide on a particular home, your Realtor® makes an offer on your behalf to the home sellers agent. Often this will result in a counter offer and your Realtor® will assist you in the negotiation to get you the best possible deal.

Next, your Realtor® will help you arrange for an inspection and negotiate repairs or other consideration on your behalf. You and your Realtor® will work with your lender to make sure they have what they need and stay on track. 

Your Realtor® and lender will work with a title company to draft all necessary paperwork. The title company will then schedule a date for your closing, where the transaction is completed, and ownership is officially transferred from seller to you.
