So, you are thinking about buying a home? You came to the right place! The Realtors at Imagine Homes Realty have the experience and the dedication to help you get from your first online search to the closing table!
The process can be stressful, even for those who have bought and sold multiple homes over the years. It’s the biggest investment of your life, so it certainly makes sense that you are online searching for the right representation to help you navigate to that MAGICAL day known as Closing Day!
The infographic pictured here walks us through the process in seven steps:
1 – Analyze your needs. This is where your agent can help you understand the current market, the community, and how to work the buying process into your personal timeline.
2 – Financing. If you need a loan, you’ll need to have a pre-approval letter from a lender before we start a serious search. We have a short list of trusted local lenders to help you, if you need a recommendation.
3 – House Hunting. This part can be a lot of fun! We will hit the road and view homes that are in your preferred area and within your budget.
4 – Make an offer. This is where things can get complicated and stressful. But with an experienced agent by your side, you’ll understand what is happening each step of the way. It may take more than one try to reach mutual acceptance on a property, but we will work together to write competitive offer, based on the price and terms you choose.
5 – We will perform due diligence such as a home inspection, appraisal, title search, HOA rules, etc.
6 – Finalize your loan. You will worth closely with your loan processor to help them give final approval on your loan. We love to hear “Cleared to close”!
7 – You will set an appointment to meet at Title & Escrow to sign your closing docs. This is usually before closing day. On the actual closing day, the transaction is funded and recorded with the county in your name. You will then be a HOME OWNER!!
