Home Buying Basics

Congratulations on your decision to buy a new home! There are many things to consider, especially if you’re buying your first home. This list will help keep you on track to being a home owner!

Your home is probably the biggest and most important purchase you’ve ever made, so it’s important to make the right decisions and to keep an eye on the details. With the assistance of your Real Estate Agent and Loan Officer, it should be an efficient, pleasant, and ultimately rewarding experience.

Your Real Estate Agent Will:

  • Preview homes on the market.

  • Present the homes that fit your needs.

  • Help you determine the difference between a “good buy” and a property which, because of its nature (neighborhood, market appeal, etc.), might have to be discounted if you decide to sell in the future.

  • Negotiate the best deal on the price and closing costs!

Your Mortgage Banker and Loan Officer Will:

  • Prequalify you so you know what is in your budget.

  • Assist you in selecting the best loan to meet your personal situation and goals such as a USDA, VA, FHA, etc.

  • Keep you and your agent informed of your loan status.

  • Get the appropriate loan for you at the best rates and fees!

You Will Need To:

  • Have an idea of what you WANT and what you NEED from a house and let your RealEstate Agent help you find the perfect fit.

  • Keep the process moving by providing documentation and decisions as soon as reasonably possible.

  • Enjoy purchasing your home! But remember to keep a level head, you don’t want to base decisions off of emotions.
