Topics Covered

How to pay for this?

The best way to start the home buying process is by determining if you can afford to purchase a home and, if so, how much can you afford.

Who will represent you?

You can search homes online all day long, but you‘ll need a real estate professional to schedule showings, offer expertise, negotiate on your behalf, manage paperwork and many other daunting tasks.

What do you want?

Now comes the fun part... deciding what you want in a home! How many bedrooms? Bathrooms? How far are you willing to commute? Do you want a move-in ready home or are you willing to do a few renonvation projects?

You found the home, now what?

Woo-hoo! You’ve found the home you’ve been dreaming of. Now what? At this point, your real estate agent will help you prepare and present an offer. He/she will also negotiate the terms and potential counteroffers.
