Six Simple Steps to Successful Home Buying

IT IS...

Select an agent with whom you can identify, trust, share confidences and be comfortable. Ask for references. Have that agent explain the search process. Who you select often determines how successful you will be Then...

Identify to the best of your ability the important elements of your "dream house". Clearly identify your resources to be applied to the purchase (ex. savings, cash from sale of current home, stocks, bonds, gifts from family, etc). Remember, be open and honest. A good agent is not out to squander your resources. Then...

Manage the process. There is absolutely no reason why home buying should be anything but fun and exciting. It is an adventure and a new beginning. Take charge and control the process to meet your need. Expect your agent to assist you and counsel you.  Then...

Planning is essential. Plan to select a good agent. Plan your resources to be invested in a new home. Plan to spend a reasonable amount of time reviewing a reasonable number of properties. Plan to negotiate toward a win/win purchase. Plan for success and setbacks. Plan to reach your goal. Then...

Learn. What is available at what cost in which neighborhoods? What financing alternatives are available to you? What neighborhood amenities are present? What amenities are really important to you in a home and neighborhood? Then...

Expect decision making time. Expect to spend time and energy talking and thinking about which home is best. Expect to negotiate the contract. Expect us to keep you informed. Expect us to assist you to the best of our ability.
