Step 1: Define Your Priorities and Budget
Call American Stages so we can assist them in referrals for all of the other steps. It's good to have a local agent assist in the process as we can connect them with the right lenders, inspectors and vendors to smooth out the process. Before embarking on your home buying journey, take the time to define your priorities. Are you seeking a quiet suburban retreat or an urban hub with bustling energy?
Step 2: Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage
You should ask an Real Estate agent with American Stages for a reputable local lender who can assist in this step. It's part of our job as agents to connect our clients with proven lenders who can guide them in the process. Understanding how much you can afford is a crucial step.
Step 3: Research the Market
American Stages will also send them in office deals and email them new listings from the MLS. Research is your best friend. Dive into the housing market to understand pricing trends, neighborhood dynamics, and the availability of homes within your budget.
Step 4: Partner with a Realtor
Enlist the help of a real estate professional who understands the local market and can guide you through the process. They can help you find properties that align with your priorities, negotiate offers, and handle the paperwork.
Step 5: Tour Homes and Make an Offer
Once they have the pre approval one of our buyers agents will take them to tour home and write a competitive offer to assist them in getting into their dream home!
Step 6: Due Diligence and Closing
Once your offer is accepted, you'll enter the due diligence phase. This involves a home inspection, appraisal, and finalizing the mortgage. If everything goes smoothly, you'll reach the closing stage, where ownership is transferred, and you become a proud homeowner.
