The Home Buying Process

Before You Buy

The first step in the home buying process is to create a “wish list” of your wants and needs. What are the non-negotiable items that are a “must-have” and what are the features that would be nice to have if possible. You’ll also need to set a budget so we can determine the right price band to target. I can help you choose a lender to get you pre-qualified for a loan, and then you're ready to start house hunting. Search for your dream home from any device on my website. You can even compare walk scores, school ratings, and neighborhood demographics for different listings.


The Search

Whether it’s your first home or if you’re an experienced buyer, purchasing a home is a complex process. By working with me, you’ll find a home in the neighborhood where you want to live, one that fits your budget and meets your goals for features, quality and value.


Making the Purchase

Once you’ve found the home that’s right for you, I will guide you through the process of making an offer; negotiating the terms of the sale; and following through on anything needed through the close of escrow. I have a vast network of contacts that I am plugged into for information on homes coming to the market soon – information you won’t find when simply searching the web.
