Let's take a look at the key steps to buying a home.
PRE SHOPPING: You should give some thought to your lifestyle, think about your wants and needs, which neighborhoods you prefer, and what is affordable. Figuring out what is most important to you will help finding the perfect house.
GETTING APPROVED: It is usually recommended to look into getting a pre-approval on a mortgage, before house shopping. Majority of people require a mortgage when purchasing a house.
VIEWING HOMES: Purchasing a home is one of the biggest decisions one can make. By making the most out of your home viewing experience, you can learn how you can avoid costly errors that could lead to future problems.
MAKING AN OFFER: When you have found the right house for you and your family the next step is writing the offer to purchase. This is done by your Real Estate Agent with you.
CLOSING: After all conditions are met it is time to close the sale. On possession day you will receive your new keys from your Real Estate Agent. You should then go on a walk through together and check the house.
MOVING DAY!: To make moving day run a little bit smoother you should be packed up and pre organized. Prior to moving in, determine what is best to go where inside the new house.
I hope these steps help with any questions about the Home Buying Process!
