We will tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.

Home Buying Process
How will you tell me about the newest homes available?
The Multiple Listing Service website provides up-to-date information for every home on the market. We constantly check the new-to-market listings so we can be on the lookout for our clients. We will get you this information right away, the way that is most convenient for you: by phone and/or email. In addition, we are aware of many “off market” properties. If one of these meets your needs, we will forward the opportunities to you.
How does for sale by owner (FSBO) work?
Homeowners trying to sell their home without agent representation are usually doing so in the hopes of saving the brokerage fee or agent compensation. If you see a FSBO and want the advantages of our services, let us contact the owner for you and make an appointment. Most times the homeowner will work with an agent, even though their home is not listed, since the agent is introducing a potential buyer to their property.
How much money will I have to come up with to buy a home?
This depends on a number of factors, not just the cost of the house and the type of mortgage you would like. You should plan to come up with enough money to cover three costs: earnest money – the deposit you make on the home when you submit your offer (to prove to the seller that you are serious about wanting to buy the house), the down payment (a percentage of the cost of the home that you must pay when you are in escrow), and closing costs (the costs associated with processing the paperwork to buy a house.)
You will pay the closing costs at the close of escrow. This amount averages 3-4% of the price of your home. These costs cover various fees and processing expenses. When you apply for your loan, we will give you an estimate of the closing costs so you won’t be caught by surprise.
Once my offer is accepted, what should I do?
We will be with you every step of the way to ensure you are aware of deadlines. The first 17 days will be about inspections, disclosures, and figuring out mortgage-related items. After contingencies are removed, you will want to schedule your move, pack items and notify businesses of your address change. We will provide you with a moving checklist to help you remember all the details. We will also give you a good-faith estimate and HUD statement, which will indicate the amount you will need to bring to closing.
