The Buying Process
1. CHOOSE YOUR REALTOR
Ensure this is someone you respect and trust – check online reviews & meet in person.
2. GET PRE-APPROVED
Meet with a mortgage consultant to get pre-approved for a loan – your realtor will be able to recommend some good lenders.
3. BEGIN YOUR SEARCH
Establish your baseline criteria, such as location, price, size. (Your realtor will have checklists and worksheets to help you refine your wishlist.)
4. ONLINE REFINE
We will work together to fine tune your criteria.
5. VIEW PROPERTIES
Seeing the properties in person helps to confirm or further refine your criteria.
6. MAKE AN OFFER
You found it!
7. NEGOTIATE TERMS
Sellers often counter price, closing date, financing, and inspection contingencies.
8. REMOVE CONTINGENCIES
The most common contingencies are financing, inspection and condominium document review.
9. FINAL WALKTHROUGH
Ensure agreed repairs have been made and property is in acceptable condition.
Review and sign the closing documents. The keys will be handed over and the property is yours!
