Buying a home is probably the biggest financial commitment you’ll ever make.

Step 1 | Choose A Realtor
Step 2 | Get Pre-Approved
Step 3 | Refine Your Focus
Detailing your housing needs, wants and budget will be helpful for both you and your REALTOR®. Ask your agent for worksheets or online tools to help narrow down your choices
Step 4 | View Properties
Step 5 | Make An Offer
Step 6 | Negotiate Terms
Step 7 | Get An Inspection
This is your best chance to have your property’s systems and structure evaluated. An experienced, outside professional is worth every penny. And you may want to add a home warranty to cover appliances and systems that could break down up to a year after you close.
Step 8 | Do A Walk-through
Step 9 | Initiate A Wire Transfer
For your security all funds due at closing must be in the form of a wire. So funds arrive in time for closing, please initiate wires at least 24 hours prior to your closing time. If you are obtaining financing your loan officer can give you an approximate amount needed for closing. We will refund any overage.
Step 10 | Close
At closing you will review and sign the relevant closing papers that will be notarized by your closer, the keys are passed to you and the house is yours!
