To begin with, we believe that the more informed you are, the better your experience will be. We have the resources to guide you through the home finding process, providing you with everything from detailed property searches to neighborhood information.
Below, we have included a general step-by-step list to help explain the home buying process. Some of these stages may seem confusing, but, remember, we are here to answer any questions.
Before the search begins, it’s a good idea to define what type of house, neighborhood, and location best suits your needs and lifestyle. Have fun with this! Have you always wanted a wood fireplace? Is a large yard important to you? We recommend imagining your dream home, while also taking into account your financial considerations. These are important things to consider when looking to buy.
Once you share these details with us, we can offer feedback and advice to help develop a plan and goal moving forward. You may want to prioritize what specifications you are looking for in a new home to offer some flexibility when scouting for houses.
First, meet with a loan officer. Sharing income and financial information will give you a price range for which you are qualified.
With your specifications in mind, we will use our resources to scout the marketplace on your behalf. When we find houses that meet your criteria, we can review them and schedule a tour at your convenience.
Once we have found the home of your dreams, our York realtors will help you determine an appropriate offer price by reviewing market trends and similar home sales. With your input, we will draft a written offer that outlines the price as well as the responsibilities of both parties in preparation for the transaction. If the seller accepts the offer, it becomes a binding contract. It is imperative that you carefully review the contract and clarify any aspects that are not clear to you prior to offering.
In order to ensure your safety and the value of your investment, it is important to have the proper personnel thoroughly inspect the house after the offer and loan terms have been finalized.
We will prepare the necessary documents required for closing such as title examination, payoff statements, and deed. On the closing day you will sign all documents. The seller will be paid and you will receive the keys.
Congratulations, you just bought a new home! It is that easy.
