Whether you are buying your very first home or you have done this many times before, working with an agent who takes the time to truly understand what you are looking for and provides you with expert assistance at every step of the way makes all the difference. By listening closely, asking good questions, and learning about everything from your lifestyle and location preferences to your budget and timeline, Jeannie is able to present you with a curated selection of homes that have the potential to be exactly the right fit. And she’s not just looking at an online database – as a leader in the real estate community, Jeannie is often the first to know about homes that aren’t yet officially on the market, and therefore won’t show up in any MLS searches. She puts this market knowledge and every other resource at her disposal to work for you, and she doesn’t rest until you have the keys to your dream home in your hands.

Steps to buying your dream home

Our mission is to empower Buyers with information to make smart decisions.

1. Decide to buy

Although there are many good reasons for you to buy a home, wealth building ranks among the top of the list. We call home ownership the best “accidental investment” most people ever make. But, we believe when it is done right, home ownership becomes an “intentional investment” that lays the foundation for a life of financial security and personal choice. There are solid financial reasons to support your decision to buy a home, and, among these, equity buildup, value appreciation, and tax benefits stand out.

2. Hire your agent

Call me ans schedule an appointment. Jeannie can guide you through this process and make it look easy. The typical real estate transaction involves at least two dozen separate individuals whose actions and decisions have to be orchestrated in order to perform in harmony and get a home sale closed. It is the responsibility of your real estate agent to expertly coordinate all the professionals involved in your home purchase and to act as the advocate for you and your interests throughout.

3. Secure financing.

While you may find the thought of home ownership thrilling, the thought of taking on a mortgage may be downright chilling. Many first-time buyers start out confused about the process or nervous about making such a large financial commitment. Your lender will decide whether to preapprove your loan based on documented and verifiable information regarding your employment, income, liabilities, cash on hand and your tax returns.

4. Find your home

You may think that shopping for homes starts with jumping in the car and driving all over town. However, driving around is fun for only so long-if weeks go by without finding what you're looking for, the fun can fade pretty fast. That's why we say that looking for your home begins with carefully assessing your values, wants, and needs, both for the short and long terms. Jeannie can help.

5. Make an offer

When searching for your dream home, you were just that-a dreamer. You need to approach this process with a cool head and a realistic perspective of your market. The three basic components of an offer are price, terms, and contingencies. Price-the right price to offer must fairly reflect the true market value of the home you want to buy. Your agent's market research will guide this decision. Jeannie will be happy to prepare the paperwork and go through it with you before submitting it.

6. Close

The final stage of the home buying process is the lender's confirmation of the home's worth and legal statue, and your continued credit-worthiness. This entails a survey, appraisal, title search, and a final check of your credit and finance. Your agent will keep you posted on how each if progressing, but your work is pretty much done. Once the papers are signed and money changes hands, the journey is over — you are a homeowner! With luck, knowing all the steps involved has made the process go smoother and easier.
