With today’s real estate market continuing to see rapid improvement, and with rent prices skyrocketing in many areas, many people who’ve hesitated to buy a home in the past are starting to give serious thought to homeownership
Here are the 6 primary steps it takes to buy a home:
Step 1 in the buying process begins with the agent and buyer reviewing the current market conditions as well as what the buyer wants and needs in their new home.
Step 2 is getting pre-approved for a loan in order to know how much the buyer can spend.
Step 3 involves narrowing the search so the buyer is only looking at houses that meet their criteria. When the buyer is ready to make an offer, that’s when step 4 comes in. This is where a good real estate agent will help negotiate the price and terms so the buyer gets the best deal possible.
The 5th Step is Getting the home inspected. You want to make sure that any property you consider purchasing is free of any unnecessary and costly repairs.
Step 6 is the closing. That’s when the buyer closes the deal and gets the keys to their new home.
