Information for Buyers

Buying a home will be one of the most important decisions you will make in your lifetime. It will probably happen more than once and for different reasons but the process remains the same. My goal is to provide you with the right information for the decision that you are making so that you can move forward knowing you have made the right choice. The process can be lengthy and confusing, so I am here every step of the way to make sure that you can enjoy the experience and make your dreams a reality. My goal is to build long lasting relationships built on mutual trust and respect. I am here to provide the tools and education needed to assist you in making well informed decisions for your purchase.

Why are you moving?

The first step to buying a new home is to know why? The why for everyone is different and determines what I will help you look for. You may be buying your first home, downsizing for retirement, needing more room for a growing family, investing, or maybe you just need something different. Whatever the reason, I am here to make this an enjoyable process that will save you time and money.

How much can I spend?

The next step in the process is to determine not only how much money you can spend but more importantly, how much you want to spend. Buying a home is a commitment that you have to know that you can afford and be comfortable with. You don’t have to spend a penny more than you want and I am here to make sure that you get a great deal no matter the market conditions. Consulting with a mortgage broker is the most important step in moving forward with your purchase. Before you shop, you need to know what you can shop for. I can put you in touch with a mortgage professional that will make sure that you are looked after.

Shopping for a Home

This is where the fun begins! We will sit down together and determine what you want and what you need. It never hurts to prepare a list in advance of things that are most important to you. This could be things like location, lot size, number of bedrooms, view, close to certain schools or shopping. Together we will determine your shopping list along with the price and look through some places that best suit your needs. I am here to work hard for you and keep you up to date on new listings and properties that will be the right fit so that you know right away when a property comes on the market that might be right for you!

We found the place we like!

The hard work begins once you have located the right property. This is when I walk you through the process of making sure that the home is everything that you hoped and needed it to be. A few of the things we will be looking into are things like a home inspection, insurance, disclosures, septic and water information, zoning, permits as well as other items to make sure you are getting what you will pay for. Over my years in real estate I have come in contact with a network of trusted professionals that will help guide us through the process of selecting the right home.

Pack up your things it’s time to move

Only once we have made sure that the home you have chosen is right for you it is time to prepare yourself for your big “move in”. These are exciting times and your experience should be enjoyable! My job is to find you the right home at the price that is best for you. I will take the stress away and give you time and peace of mind in return.
