PROSPECTIVE HOME BUYERS
Steps to Take as You Prepare to Buy Your Dream Home.
YOU'RE READY TO PUT DOWN NEW ROOTS!
You have decided to make what is likely to be the single largest financial transaction of your life, and I am here to help you along your EXCITING journey. To begin with, let's take the time to determine what type of home you are looking for. No matter what your timeline, it’s important to understand your preferences in style, location and price.
SECURE YOUR FINANCING
As you begin looking for your new home, it is very important to become preapproved for a mortgage loan as soon as possible. With a mortgage preapproval in hand, you can shop for your home knowing what your preapproved loan amount is and how different loan amounts will affect your monthly mortgage payment. This will also help us know what price range to keep your home search within. Furthermore, your offer will be stronger because you have a lender that has preapproved your loan.
LET'S FIND YOUR DREAM HOME
My efforts to find your perfect home in this beautiful part of Northern Michigan will be ongoing and tenacious! I will be constantly searching my network, attending open houses and staying updated on upcoming and new listings to find you a great home that reflects your preferences and budget. I understand that my job is to get you the property that you want at the right price!
As your agent, I will be committed to representing you and protecting your interests during the crucial negotiating process. Along with securing a winning price, there will also be terms, conditions, time frames, and possession that will also need to be agreed upon. I will guide you through the process of negotiating the best terms for you, and how to get to the closing table quickly.
When your offer is accepted, I will be sure you are connected with trusted experts to ensure a smooth transaction. I will coordinate all of the moving parts with the inspector, appraiser, title company, lender, and sellers so that your transaction closes on time with minimal uncertainty and surprises. My goal is to provide exceptional service with outstanding results.
FINALIZE THE SALE
After your final walkthrough, I will help facilitate all the needed steps for you to be confident in a successful closing and transfer of funds. I will help you review closing disclosures and go over the items you will need to bring to your closing date. After the closing is finished, there will be a BIG congratulations to you on your new home ownership!
