How to Buy a Home

There’s a lot to know when it comes to buying a home. I'll break it down in 4 easy steps.

Step 1: Don't do it alone; As a Realtor my job is to  know what you don't, and use that to get you the best deal available for the home you want. You DON'T pay me to represent you during the purchase of your fact the SELLER pays me to represent you!

Step 2: Now, that you have hired me to be your Realtor the next step is to get pre-approved by a mortgage lender for your new home. I work with several lenders that you can work with or we can work with any lender of your choice.

Step 3: After your pre-approval has been issued then it's time to start  shopping for your home!!! Whether it be for New construction or pre-loved homes, I'll take care of scheduling all showing appointments.

Step 4: Write a contract for your new home now that you've found it!! At this point I'll analyze the market for the area of the new home and put together an offer strategy best in line to get what you need but most importantly to get you the home!!! 

 Whether you’re a first time buyer, looking for a bigger house or downsizing, I’m here to help you every step of the way. At Your Family 1st Real Estate Group my goal is to provide you with expert, caring, and candid advice throughout one of the most important transactions in your life. That is my commitment to you.
