The Process of Buying a Home

The process of buying a home is a big undertaking. However is can be a very enjoyable experience if you are well prepared and follow the right steps.

Understanding the process will help you be prepared and know what to expect.

The Short Version

1)      Select a Buyer’s Agent 

2)      Get Pre-Approved

3)      Find a House

4)      Make the Offer

5)      Negotiations and Counter Offers

6)      Get the Due Diligence Done

7)      Get your Insurance in Place

8)      Prepare for Closing

9)      Closing the Transaction


Each step in this process has additional information that accompanies it. Your agent can explain each step in detail and let you know how to work though them. A buyer’s agent will typically handle the majority of the steps and keep the communication flowing between you, your lender, the tile company and the seller or seller’s agent.

Good luck with your purchase and please let me know if you have additional questions or would like for me to be your agent!
