Having this information will enable you to shop within a price range that fits within what you are committed to spending on a monthly basis. A lender can discuss financing options with you and outline the best scenarios for your purchase. When possible, consider using a local lender.

Visit on different days of the week and different times of each day. Take a walk around the area, visit the schools and/or parks nearby, talk to neighbors, and get a feel for the area. Exploration can be just as important as obtaining reports and inspections on any houses for sale.
Ask your agent for hard copies or if you prefer to read and review documents online, electronic copies can easily be provided. The documents you will receive range from the initial purchase contract, to seller disclosures, reports and inspections, title and escrow information, etc.
Inspections are typically completed at the buyer’s expense. We typically recommend a home inspection, roof inspection, termite inspection and chimney inspection (if applicable). Other inspections people consider when applicable include: pool inspections, foundation inspections, well inspections/water tests, septic inspections, and sewer line inspections.
An appraisal is completed by a third party for the benefit of the lender. The lender typically offers you financing based on a percentage of appraised value. Ordered through a system on “round robin” basis, appraisals establish a fair market value for the property. The appraiser visits the property, measures for square footage, take photos for reports. They are NOT a home inspection.
We stick to a timeline as determined by the contract and everyone works as diligently as possible to stay on track, but with so many parties involved there are inevitable delays that will be out of your control.
If you are currently renting, please consult your Realtor and lender prior to giving your landlord notice to vacate, we do not want you without a place to live!
If you are obtaining financing: DO NOT make any major purchases, open new credit accounts, etc., without first speaking to your lender. Doing so could compromise your ability to qualify for your loan.

Get setup on our website to receive automated listing alerts for homes that match your criteria. We can take care of this for you in a matter of minutes once we have a clear understanding of what you are looking for in a home.
When you begin looking at homes, make sure to keep an open mind. Some homes show like model homes, others not so much. Remember you’re not going to be living there with that occupant’s belongings. Look past any clutter or cosmetic features that are easily changed with some elbow grease.
Drive around and explore areas at different times of day, take a walk in the areas you like, and visit any nearby parks, this can give you a good feel of the area and what the neighborhood has to offer before beginning your hunt for houses for sale.
The market in many areas and price points is very fast paced. If there is a home you are interested in, it will be important that we get you in to see it promptly, we will also inquire with the listing agent to find out if the seller will be reviewing offers on a particular day.
We can show you ANY house that is for sale, we are not limited by homes that our company has listed.
