Buying a Home

    Buying a home is a big decision.  Given the costs and competition in the East Bay, buying one here is an even bigger decision.  Whether you're buying your first home, next home, a second home, or buying an investment property or even a vacation home, buying a home can often become overwhelming for the average person.  While it can be tremendously rewarding, at the same time it is often one of the most stressful events a person can experience.  Navigating the tricky waters of typical real estate transactions is not an easy task.  However, pairing with a top quality real estate agency like ours can help immensely.  Buying real property often begins with the following:
  • Identify your goals
  • Find a good real estate agent
  • Get pre-approved for a loan
  • Find your dream home
  • Review the listing package
  • Negotiate and strike a deal with the seller
  • Lock down the financing
  • Complete the terms of the purchase contract
  • Prepare to move
  • Get the keys
  • Turn on utilities and notify post office of change of address, etc
  • Settle into your new home
    Notice that “Find a good real estate agent” is the second step when buying a home. A good real estate agent is a partner to you throughout the process.  However, you'll need to understand your goals in order to find and establish the right partnership.  A good real estate agent can help you refine your goals and help manage the process with lender and contract fulfillment. Many buyers spend a lot of their time trying to figure out the market, seeking a basic understanding of the current market versus focusing on meeting their goals. Unfortunately this can result in the buyers being exhausted when they are attempting to negotiate a serious purchase offer.
