The decision to purchase a home is deeply personal. That's why our team of agents are committed to making the process as smooth and enjoyable as possible. You won't find any high-pressure sales here! Our agents take the time to learn about you, your family, and what matters most to you. We are ready to walk with you on this journey to buying your home and guide you through the process. Our home buying system takes a step-by-step approach, which reduces uncertainties and improves communication, creating a more enjoyable experience along the way.
Your agent will take the time to learn what matters most to you and discuss the process.
After you have decided to purchase a home you will need to determine your buying power. This process is called the preapproval process. Your agent will be able to suggest some great loan officers. The agent and loan officer you choose to work with can be the difference between a good experience and a bad experience.
Once you have completed the preapproval process, your agent will assist you in defining your preferences and price range. When you find the homes you would like to tour your agent will schedule your showings and meet with you to tour the homes.
So, you found the home of your dreams! Your real estate agent will assist you in the process of making and negotiating your offer! Once your offer has been accepted you will have multiple deadlines to meet. Your agent will help keep you on track of each deadline and what is needed every step of the way.
You will need to submit your earnest money. Earnest money is the money paid to confirm your contract. Your loan officer will order your appraisal to determine the value of the home.
You will also be ordering and scheduling all necessary inspections. Remember, different properties and loans require different types of inspections. Your agent will assist you in finding a great inspector and determining the necessary inspections. Once you receive the inspection report you will discuss the findings with your agent and negotiate with the seller to make certain repairs on major defects of a property.
Your agent will be checking in with the seller's realtor to make sure all agreed upon repairs are completed and documentation of the repairs are provided to you.
Time to schedule your closing. Typically a closing is held at a title company. All parties will coordinate a time with the title company to attend the closing.
Congratulations, it is the closing day! You will be the proud owner of your new home and decide which charity you would like your Birkle Realty Group Realtor to donate to on your behalf.
