You’ve decided to buy a home… a smart decision, considering rental rates are constantly on the rise and interest rates are continuing to hold at near-record lows. The JS Realty Team @ Samson Properties has the knowledge and experience to guide you through the entire process. From your initial consultation through settlement day, we will tailor the buying process to meet your specific needs through the following steps.
1. GATHER INFORMATION
At your initial consultation, we need to gather lots of information from you to aid us in the progression of finding the RIGHT home for YOU. So be prepared for a barrage of questions! You can expect this conversation to include:
-Style of home you prefer
-Features of a home that are most attractive to you
–Contacting a Lender to get you pre-qualified for a loan
Once we’ve compiled your wish-list, the next step is to set up a personalized search specific to your requests.
2. FIELD TRIP!
Here’s where the real fun begins. Tours can be set up based on the properties you’ve chosen. While touring, we will ask additional questions in order to continue refining your search. You may choose to add to your current list as well as rule out many already on the list.
3. CONTRACT NEGOTIATION
After you’ve successfully chosen the home that’s right for you, your Realtor’s value and importance will really shine through at this stage of the game. We will negotiate the terms of the contract in order to achieve the best results attainable. Once the terms of the contract are in place, the next most important step is the inspection.
4. HOME INSPECTION
We will now hire a licensed home Inspector who will thoroughly examine the property and provide a detailed report with potential items which need to be addressed. The Inspector will also provide tips for preventative maintenance that can potentially save you money in the future.
5. PLANNING YOUR MOVE
While waiting for your loan to be finalized and settlement day to arrive, you’ll want to begin planning your move. Once the transaction is settled, you will receive keys to your new home!
Although the buying process is now complete, remember that the JS Realty Team is always available to you for additional questions and any further Real Estate needs. Feel free to contact us at any time!
