Steps to Buying Real Estate
Please call ahead for an appointment. We may be out showing property or involved
with other customers. By calling first, you can rest assured that we will be
available for you.
We must know certain facts in order to show you the "right" property. Your
family size, past and present employment status, income range, debt load, present
home status, desired price range and location are a few of the things we need
to know. The more we know the better we can serve you.
on us to help you select the best financing packages available to suit
the property and your needs. Every week we receive updates
from the major lending institutions in the area. We are familiar
with several different options available to buyers requiring financing.
We can show you photographs and listing information in the office, then take
you through properties for viewing. We'll show you the outside and the inside
and answer questions.
When you find the "right" property, we'll assist you in preparing
a purchase offer for presentation to the seller. To validate your offer a deposit
is required. Your deposit is applied to the purchase price upon
acceptance of the offer. If your offer is declined, the deposit will
be promptly returned.
Your offer will be presented to the seller. If negotiations are necessary,
we'll handle the negotiations from start to finish. Once your offer is
fully agreed upon and signed by both parties it becomes a binding contract. From
this point on the entire transaction is based on the purchase contract.
From the time you write the offer until the sale is safely closed, we'll work
closely with the lender, attorney, surveyor, appraiser and all other parties
involved in the transaction to insure a smooth closing.
