Q: What 5 Steps Should Every Homebuyer Take?
Every home purchaser should do these five things, in order.
Here are a few important steps you should always take when buying a home:
1. Find a good agent. You want a full-service agent who is trustworthy, knows the market, and knows how to negotiate.
2. Speak with a lender. It’s the most empowering part of the process. They will let you know exactly what you can afford and exactly what your bill will be every month so there’s no more guesswork involved.
3. Find a house. Your agent will take your price point, location, desires, and needs, and help you find the perfect match based on what’s out there.
4. Make an offer. This is where a good agent really comes into play. It isn’t always money that wins the day, but a good negotiator and a strong team on your side will help make your offer more attractive.
5. Escrow. This is the home stretch where your team of professionals takes over to cross the t’s and dot the i’s.
