Buying

Let me help you every step of the way
 

When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable and less time-consuming. I will help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the many details of the purchasing process.


I am aware of the current homes on the market, and I know neighborhood values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search by showing you sales of comparable properties.
 

Your First Step
 
Your first step to buying a home is to ask yourself why you want to buy a home: To stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."
 
Consider area (downtown, suburbia or an acreage in the country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and established or sparkling new with no trees; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.
 
Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.

 
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
 

Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online.


Feel free to call me and I will refer you to mortgage professionals whom I trust and who have excellent reputations for successfully acquiring loan approval for their clients.
 

I Will Find Suitable Homes for you to Consider
 

Once you've been pre-qualified and know what is your comfortable price range, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs. I will enter your specific search parameters on the MLX (Multiple Listing Service) system and as soon as properties meeting your criteria are listed you will immediately receive the listing in your inbox. 


I Will Help you Every Step of the Way
 

I will help you complete your financing and inspections, and close on the transaction. My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.
