Day 6 of 7 Steps to Buying a Home

Prepare for the closing.
When an offer becomes a binding agreement, I will help you tackle the checklist of action items that you, as the buyer, have agreed to perform prior to closing. Depending on how the responsibilities are divvied up in the agreement, this is typically when you will:

  • Conduct a home inspection.
  • Get an appraisal and finalize your financing.
  • Secure title insurance.
  • Shop for a home warranty.

Having these procedures done in a timely and professional manner is a must, as any delays could threaten a successful closing. I will serve as your advocate, helping to coordinate activities and making sure the vendors have access to the property to perform their jobs.

Day 5 of 7 Steps to Buying a Home

Make an offer.
When you're ready to make an offer on a home, I will help you determine the offer price by reviewing recent sales of homes similar in size, quality and amenities. With your input, I will draft a written contract that outlines what needs to be done by both parties to execute the transaction. If the seller accepts the offer, the document becomes a binding agreement, so it is imperative that you carefully review it with your agent... and speak up if anything is not clear to you. It's important to note that if the seller changes any aspect of the offer, it is not a binding agreement until the buyer agrees to the seller's changes.
Strike a deal.
Sometimes, you get lucky and the seller accepts your offer as is. However, in most instances, the seller will make a counteroffer. This is where your real estate agent's experience in negotiations will be invaluable. Keep in mind almost everything is negotiable when you are buying a house. This can give you a great deal of leverage in the buying process - that is, if you have adequate information and you use it in an appropriate manner. Some items you may negotiate:
Closing costs
Move-in date
Appliances and fixtures
Remain in close contact with me so you can quickly review any changes from the seller. Remember: Bargaining is not a winner-take-all deal. It is a business process that involves compromise and mutual respect.

Day 4 of 7 Steps to Buying a Home


Now you are ready to embark on your home search - an endeavor that can prove overwhelming if not approached with some forethought. The most efficient route is to allow your real estate agent do the initial scouting for you. Using your wish list as a guide, he or she will alert you of new and existing listings that have strong potential. If these listings pique your interest, your agent will arrange home tours at y...our convenience. Many agents send alerts via email - sometimes as often as daily, depending on the available inventory in your market. Let your agent know how you'd like to receive these alerts, whether by phone, email or fax.

You also can do some research on your own. Read local real estate publications, contact your local neighborhood associations, visit the local chamber of commerce, surf the Internet, or drive around your favorite neighborhoods. While these methods certainly can lead to your dream home, it's important to note that 82 percent of home sales are the result of agent connections.
