First Steps to Your New Home

First Steps to Your New Home

Begin the journey to home ownership, whether its your first or next home, by exploring our guide on the first steps to your new home.

We love helping buyers find their dream home. That’s why we work with each client individually, taking the time to understand their unique lifestyles, needs and wishes. This is about more than a certain number of bedrooms or a particular ZIP code. It’s about your life, and it’s focus around which all of the other pieces of this puzzle will fit. These are the first steps to your new home.

When you work with us, you get:

A knowledgeable and professional REALTOR®
A committed ally to negotiate on your behalf
The back of a trusted company, Keller Williams Realty

We’ve built powerful systems to streamline the home-buying process for you. As part of our service, we will commit to helping you with your home search by:

Previewing homes in advance on your behalf
Personally touring homes and neighborhoods with you
Keeping you informed of new homes on the market
Helping you preview homes on the Web
Advising you of other homes that have sold and for how much
Working with you until we find the home of your dreams

Here’s how we start


Mortgage Pre-Approval


Know thy Costs

It’s crucial that you know all of the costs involved in purchasing your home because they can add up quickly. It’s part our job to work with your lender to obtain a loan estimate (previously known as a Good Faith Estimate) and review what those costs with you.


Build Your Wish List


Next, we build your list of must haves and like-to-haves for your dream home.


The Search Begins


Making an Offer

Once you have found the property you want, we will write a purchase agreement.

While much of the agreement is standard fare, there are many areas that we can negotiate including price, earnest money deposit, option period, closing date, included personal property, repairs, seller paid buyers costs, and home warranties.


Closing and Funding

Once we have your dream home under contract, a lot will happen quickly: Inspections, repair negotiations, appraisal, survey, loan underwriting, and title review.

Once all of these items have been completed, we’ll schedule closing at the title company. Closing is the actual signing of all required documentation and funding is when all monies have been dispersed. You do not OWN the property until funding has occurred.
