HOME BUYING TIPS
Buying a home is one of the biggest financial investments you may ever make. While it is a major commitment and responsibility, it can also be a thrilling experience and a very exciting time in your life. With that said, we would like to congratulate you on your decision to buy a new home! It is always a privilege to hand the home buyers the keys to their new home and to be there for that first moment of celebrating ownership! We will assist you with all aspects of your home purchase – here are a few things to think about:
Prepare now for the financing of your home. Start with a review of your own finances and then work with a qualified mortgage broker or bank to get a clear picture of affordable home options.
A down payment of even a few percent can make a big difference in the types and terms of financing available for the purchase of your home. How much down payment do you have?
Whether you are moving across the country, or across the street, we will help you find a great community to call home. Commute, schools, shopping, community amenities and places of worship all contribute to your dream neighborhood.
No one knows the Central Valley better than we do, so be sure to share your community wish-list with us.
Having a good idea about the characteristics of your desired home will greatly aid us in finding well-suited properties to show you. We will use this as a guide and will be able to tailor your property search accordingly.
Now that we have helped you find your dream home, what is the next step? First, we will sit down with you to prepare an offer, otherwise known as a contract. You will want to review it carefully to be sure it states your terms exactly, including how much you want to offer, and any applicable contingencies. Then we will work during the negotiation process to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your family.
