Buyer Transaction Roadmap

  1. Get Pre-Approved
  2. Determine how much you want to spend by speaking with a trusted mortgage lender.

  3. Set Up A Search Online
  4. We will customize a search for you, pulling the most up-to-date information available on the internet from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), the central database for all real estate information.

  5. Private Showings
  6. You’ll get to see your favorite properties through a scheduled private tour.

  7. Submitting An Offer
  8. Once you find a property you love, I will write up an offer. I will pull comparable properties to determine an offer price. This can be done over the phone, in person or by email with DocuSign.

  9. Home Inspection
  10. Offers are typically contingent on a home inspection of the property by a licensed professional to check for signs of structural damage or things that may need fixing.

  11. Appraisal
  12. Lender will arrange for an appraiser to provide an independent opinion of the value of the property.

  13. Underwriting & Paperwork
  14. Lender works with a title company to handle all of the paperwork and make sure that the seller is the rightful owner of the house you are buying.

  15. Secure Property
  16. Homeowners or condo insurance is necessary and it compensates you for losses to your home and your possessions inside it.

  17. Clear to Close
  18. Lender has cleared all the conditions and is now ready to go to closing.

  19. Final Walk Thru
  20. Typically the day before or morning of closing, we do a final walk through to make sure everything is in the condition you first saw it in and previously requested repairs were made.

  21. Closing
  22. We will be there with you at the closing of escrow to walk you through each and every document and answer any questions you may have. Ownership will be transferred to you and you’ll get keys to your new home!
