Once you find your home...
Make an offer
Contract negotiations include price, but also all of the details of the house like what will stay and what will go, important dates, and even what each party will pay for during the process.
This is another reason it is crucial to have a knowledgeable, professional, home buyers specialist advocating for you during the process. The negotiation of inspection is not only for your safety, but also it can make or break a deal. A lot of people think the negotiations end after contracting, but negotiating the inspection is often just as important as price.
A lot of people don’t realize the appraisal is something that is often negotiated and sometimes end up overpaying for their first home.
This is the very exciting day that you live out the American Dream and become a first time homeowner.
Financing Pre Qualification/Pre Approval:
- It is very important to find out how much you are prequalified for before starting your home buying process, this way if you find your dream home you know it fits your budget and you will be prepared to submit an offer.
- Using a knowledgeable, attentive and responsive loan officer is important. Here are a couple of local loan officers we recommend giving a call.
Make your lists:
- Must have list: This list includes items like bedrooms, bathroom, backyard, garage – items in a home you really need and don’t want to live without.
- Wish list: This list will include items you would like to have but aren’t a deal breaker – i.e. mountain view, bonus room, walk-out basement, or double oven.
