Ah, the hunt phase. There’s nothing quite like it. The intoxicating mix of excitement and anxiety. The anticipation of finally finding the perfect home after hours spent drooling over homes online. Of course, it’s not always easy. The hunt phase can be a daunting journey. But luckily, you don’t have to go it alone. That’s where I come in. As your real estate agent, I will be there every step of the way to help make your dreams a reality. We’ll start by coming up with a strategy that works for you and your family. Then we’ll go out and preview homes. Sometimes it’s the first one, sometimes it’s the 30th. But whatever it is, I promise we’ll find the perfect home for you.
Once you’ve found your dream home, the real work begins. The next phase is known as the bargaining phase, and it’s where the rubber meets the road. This is where we sit down with you and try to hammer out a deal that works for both parties. Because every home, market, and situation is unique, we’ll have to determine your best course of action at that time. We may see an opportunity to offer a lower price, or we may advise you that you will need to go above list price to get the home. Items usually up for negotiation include price, financing, inspection timelines, repairs, deposits, concessions, closing date, possession times, contingencies, and more. We’ll be there to guide you through all of your options. Once we come to a meeting of the minds, we can move forward with the purchase of your home.
Congratulations, you’re under contract to buy a home! The length of this phase differs depending on the terms you agreed to, but it commonly takes 30-45 days to complete. During this time you will be completing your inspections, working closely with your lender, lining up things such as homeowners insurance, and awaiting your appraisal among other things. There are bound to be some hiccups and hurdles along the way so it is important to stay focused on the end goal and accomplish each task as they are presented to us. After 100’s of successful transactions, we can help you identify problems and solutions along the way.
The closing is the final step in the long and complicated process of buying a house. At this point, you have gone through inspections, negotiated repairs, received a successful appraisal report, and provided sufficient documentation to your lender. Now it is time to coordinate a wire transfer with the title company and your lender, bring your photo ID to the closing location, and sign a tall stack of papers with the title company’s closing agent. An exchange of keys will be made -or planned for- depending on the negotiated possession date. This long, complicated, and sometimes frustrating process ends with a feeling of joy and an exciting new journey begins. Congratulations! You are a homeowner!
