Are You Ready For Home Ownership?
Owning a home may be your dream, but in order for the purchase to be the positive and satisfying experience it was meant to be, you need to ensure that you are prepared for the responsibilities that come with it.
We Can Help
You need a great agent who will work hard for you. I will be dedicated to helping you find the right home, at the best price. We want you to find the home that will make you happy and successful in real estate ownership.
When you hire me to help you buy your first home, I want to know what you want and how much you can afford. Then I will find a way to merge these two priorities and find the perfect property for you!
Keep your objectives in mind when visiting a home. Sometimes the idea of owning a home can overwhelm you. I can help you stay on track while still keeping our eyes out for a great property.
Make the offer. This can be a maze of “buyer”, “seller”, “chattels”, “deposit”, and “completion”. I will be happy to prepare the paperwork and go through it with you before submitting it. Remember, the seller may reject or counter your offer, so even at this late date, avoid setting your heart on the home you hope to own. You’ll probably have to write a deposit check to the seller’s broker or title company that proves the seriousness of your offer.
Get all necessary inspections done. A home inspector will check for signs of harmful materials like asbestos, lead paint and mold. They will also check for evidence of pests, faulty wiring and leaks. This is a crucial part of the home purchase. Not getting an inspection done means that you could be stuck in a home with a bad case of black mold and no recourse other than to pay for its removal. Inspections will cost a few hundred dollars, but again, this is more than worth it in the end. There are several inspectors in the area that we would be happy to recommend.
Do a final walk through before closing the deal. I would be happy to do this with you to make sure that everything agreed upon is completed prior to the final signing.
From the first interview that determines your requirements to the moment that you receive the keys, I can help you with the complicated process of buying a home. Don’t hesitate to contact me to find out more about how we can make the home buying process easier!
