BUYING A HOME?

WE CAN HELP

We love helping buyers find their Dream Home.  We know how stressful the process can be, that's why we work with each client individually, taking the time to understand their unique lifestyles, needs, and wishes to better serve them.  We believe it's about more than a certain number of bedrooms or a particular zip code.  It's about their life, and it's important to us!

Tips For Buyers

The best way to make sure you choose the right home is to properly prepare yourself. The purchase of a home is a tremendous investment, both monetarily and emotionally. The purpose of this page is to provide you with some tips to help your transaction progress smoothly and result in you being a happy homeowner.

Get Help

Your home is likely to represent one of the largest investments in your life. In order to make sure the transaction goes smoothly it is of vital importance that you choose the right agent to represent your interests. The right agent will be someone whose experience and personality makes you comfortable. You should try to find an agent that is familiar and knowledgeable about the area you plan on moving to.

Get Pre-Approved

Do you already know how much home you can afford? There is nothing more frustrating than looking for a home, finding the perfect home, then discovering it is out of your price range. Speak with a lender to learn about the different financing options available to you. When you find the right lender, get the paperwork processed so you will be ready to buy once you find your perfect home.

Avoid Major Purchases

In order to determine the amount you can afford a lender will use your debt-to-income ratio to determine the percentage of your pre-tax income you spend on debt. Your debt ratio will include: monthly housing costs, car payments, credit cards, student loans, and any other installment debt. If you take on more debt before buying a home it will have an impact on the amount of the loan that the lender will finance.

Sign Up for Property Watch

In order to make an educated decision, you need to know what is available and how much it is going for. You can browse all the active listings from our website. Once you have found some homes you like save those searches and sign up for property watch, so new listings will be emailed to you. The best homes move fast. Make sure you're on top of the available inventory at all times so you do not miss out.

Have the Home Inspected

The last thing you want to discover after you have bought a home is that you have purchased a "money pit". By "money pit" we are referring to a home full of defects which will end up costing you a lot of money. Save yourself from future litigation by bringing in a licensed home inspector before you buy. If any problems are found the report will help you make an informed decision or negotiate a better price.
