  THE HOME BUYING PROCESS

1. SELECT AN AGENT. It is my policy to work as a Buyers’ Agent. I will provide the State required forms,  "Understanding Whom Real Estate Agents Represent" and "Consent for Dual Agency." I will explain the  Buyer Agency Agreement. Our State requires a signed Agreement if the Buyer wishes to have representation.  Please note, it is customary for the seller to pay the brokerage fee. 


2. SHOP FOR A MORTGAGE LENDER AND MAKE AN APPLICATION. The lender will determine your Purchasing Power and provide a letter of pre-approval.  The lender will order your credit reports.  I can provide references for good loan officers who will counsel you as to the best mortgage plan for you and get your loan approved in a timely manner. I recommend that you use a local direct lender and not search for a loan on the internet. 

3. SELECT A HOME

4. MAKE AN OFFER with the terms and contingencies you wish to include. Terms may be negotiated between seller and buyer through their respective agents.
