8 Steps To Buying A Home:
1 Needs & Wants
I will work together to establish and define your needs and wants, including neighborhood, school district, amenities, and more.

2 Pre-Qualify
Once your qualifications are determined, I will need to gather your financial information and get a lender pre-approval letter ready.

3 Home Search
Next, using the MLS, market research and networking, I will create a list of prospective homes for you to choose from, plus any additional homes you find doing your own home search. I will visit the properties that best fit your search criteria.

4 Make an Offer
When you've found your property, I will work together to submit a fair offer by using recent comparable sales to assess the home's market value.

5 Negotiation
When the offer terms are finalized, including closing date and price, the offer can be presented to the listing agent and I will begin to negotiate.

6 Review Process
When the contract is agreed upon by both parties, it's time to focus on the standard contingencies, including inspection, appraisal and mortgage commitment.

7 Walk-Through
Before closing, I will do a walk-through of the property to give you a final look at the home and confirm repairs that were agreed upon during inspection.

8 Closing
Closings take place at a title or escrow company. After all documents have been signed and funds to close are in escrow, the property is conveyed to you and you are a home owner.
