Buying a House

THE STAGES OF A PURCHASE

There’s a lot to know when it comes to buying a home. Understanding the details of the local community, identifying the size of home, style of home and setting, and of course, organizing a budget - these are all important details to consider. Whether you’re a first time buyer, looking for a bigger house or downsizing, I’m here to help you every step of the way. My goal is to provide you with expert, caring, and candid advice throughout one of the most important transactions in your life. That is my commitment to you. 

  • The first step to purchasing a property is ringing a real estate agent.

  • Then you will need to obtain a pre-qualification/pre-approval for a mortgage. The mortgage lender will use details you provide about your credit, income, assets and debts to arrive at an estimated mortgage you may afford. The whole process is quick and free.

  • A "pre-qual" is non-binding to the lender (because the information you provide has not been verified). It still serves as a good indicator of your general creditworthiness.

  • Most sellers will not accept an offer without at least a pre-approval letter. This is the next step towards your new home purchase.

  • There is no requirement to use the preferred lender to obtain a mortgage after you have been pre-qualified or pre-approved with the lender.
