“Owning a home is a keystone of wealth…both financial affluence & emotional security.”​

The Buyers Process

Buying a home doesn’t have to be complicated if you don’t want it to be. To make life easy, here’s the process I put all my clients through.

STEP ONE

Buyer Orientation

STEP TWO

Contract Session

STEP THREE

Grand Tour

Step 1

Buyer Orientation

If it’s your first time buying a home, there are a lot of unknowns that can be scary. This is exactly why I like to take all my clients through an orientation. 

In the buyer orientation, we will define and cover the following:

  • Home search
  • Negotiation
  • Due diligence
  • Insurance & home warranties
  • Closing costs & commissions
  • Market conditions
  • Escrow
  • Timeline

Step 2

Contract Session

As we all know, contracts are legally binding and no one should ever sign one without knowing exactly what it says. 

Should your agent know what it says? Definitely! But that’s not enough. Part of my job is make sure you know exactly what it says and understand exactly what it means. This involves seeing the positive pieces of the contract and understanding the possible risks involved.

I walk my clients through the buyer-seller contract and field any questions they may have.

Step 3

Grand Tour

This is one of my favorite things to do because of how much fun it can be looking for a place to literally call “home.”

In this stage, I take clients on a tour around their preferred areas as well as some non-preferred areas to show them various neighborhoods, cities and home types so they can make an informed decision.

These tours are vital since it allows me and the homebuyers an opportunity to see elements they can or can’t live without and what they will be willing to compromise on.

Once we narrow this down, I can begin to send you properties that meet your desired specifications.
