Buyers

Home buying is a process that begins with answering a lot of questions. Are you ready to buy a home? How much of a mortgage can you afford? How’s your credit? What type of home would you like and where?

Get Pre-approved for a Loan You should contact several lenders and determine which one will give you the best deal.

Determine Your Price Range and Locations you are interested in.

Decide Which Amenities and Features You Must Have and The Ones That Would Be Nice but not Necessary.

Test the Market. On the ‘Search Listings’ section you can begin to find listings that meet your criteria as well as neighborhood data and go on a driving tour for a quick glimpse of what’s available in your price range.

Look at Homes with Your Agent. Your agent can provide the best access and details on the homes you’ve already identified – including ones that have just come on the market.

Make an Offer Once you find a home, be prepared to help your agent prepare a written offer quickly.

Your agent will be familiar with market values and will help you arrive at a price that gives your offer the best chance of being accepted. Once Your Offer Is Accepted: You’ll be asked to submit an earnest money deposit that usually isn’t refundable. Begin making moving arrangements. Have the property professionally inspected. If necessary, request repairs. Obtain homeowner’s insurance. Contact utilities (phone, water, power, etc.). A few days before closing, stage a walk-through. Obtain a cashier’s check for the down payment and closing costs. At Closing: Make sure the terms and conditions of the loan statement are correct. Carefully read everything before you sign.

Sellers

Some things to do Before Your Home Is Listed – It’s important to have your home in good showing condition before buyers start going through it. Below are some steps to take to get your home ready to show:

Trim bushes and plants as needed, and make sure the lawn is kept mowed and trimmed. In autumn – rake the leaves; in winter – keep the snow shoveled. Keep the interior clean, de-cluttered and odor-free. Eliminate evidence of pets.

Minimize personal items such as family photos. You want buyers to see themselves living in the home. Clean out the garage and basement and sell, give away or throw away items you don’t need anymore. Consider putting excess furniture and belongings in storage.

Make sure the exterior is clean and spruced up – curb appeal will create a favorable first impression. Touch up interior and exterior paint as needed, Install new carpeting and flooring if it appears worn or dated.

Consider having a pre-listing inspection performed, Buyers will be hiring professional inspectors; here’s your chance to address problems in advance.

Consider hiring a professional stager to give your home the right emotional appeal.

You have the best chance of selling your home if you work closely with your Realtor. Make sure all showings are coordinated through him or her. If you have a brochure box, be sure to keep it filled. If prospective buyers want to discuss your property or negotiate price or other terms, defer to your realtor. He or she is the expert and can best handle all these details without emotion.
