Buying a home is one of the largest investments you’ll ever make. Choosing a well-informed real estate professional like me to guide you through this important transaction can save time and make home buying easier.

First you should meet with a lender to approve you for a loan. Your lender will determine a loan amount for which you are eligible. Now, it is time to determine your housing needs. How many bathrooms and bedrooms does your family require? What type of neighborhood appeals to you? Do you prefer a restored Victorian or a contemporary ranch house? What about a Town Home?

After this is determined, your REALTOR will show you prospective homes that fit these preferences and fall within a predetermined budget.

When you’ve selected a home, we will help you prepare and present an offer to the seller. An offer is a proposed sales contract. If the seller accepts it, you have a binding agreement. This is why your first offer should be as much in your favor as you can make it.
