Obtain a copy of your credit report and your FICA score, and if necessary, do what you need to do to improve it. The higher your FICA score, the better your interest rate. You can get this information online, or I can help you. Contact several lenders, and determine which one will give you the best deal.

Determine Your Price Range and Area(s) in Which You’re Interested

By now, you should have a good idea of how much home you can afford. This helps you narrow down your home search. You should also begin researching the neighborhoods in which you might want to live. I can assist you with this.

Decide Which Amenities and Features You Must Have – and Which Ones Would Be Nice but not Necessary

How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want? Would you prefer a newer home or an older one? Which features would you be willing to give up if you were to find the otherwise perfect home?

Your Search Begins

Right here on our site, you can find listings that meet your criteria. See what’s available in your price range and explore neighborhoods. Or, if you prefer, email me and I’ll set up a custom search for and email you new listings as they come on the market,

Making an Offer

We can help you to determine the value of the property by pulling comparable listings and showing you the data. At this stage, try not to become emotionally attached to a home. Your offer may not be accepted for any number of reasons. Have backup homes in mind. Be prepared to negotiate through us, and get a deal you’re happy with.

Once Your Offer Is Accepted

Once your offer is accepted, you’ll be asked to submit an earnest money deposit that may not be refundable. You should Always have the property professionally inspected, get a wind mitigation report, and a separate Wood Destroying Organism (Termite) inspection. Obtain homeowner’s insurance. Contact the local utility companies (phone, water, electricity, etc.). A few days before closing, schedule a walk through.
