Buying a home involves more than choosing a home you like.
While you can see a million homes on the web, actually buying your home is another matter entirely.
Our experienced Maryland real estate team is available 7 days a week; that means we will be with you every step of the way:
Step 1: Find a Loan
We'll discuss this first step at our initial meeting. If you're already working with a lender, great! If you're not sure where to start, we can give you some tips and introduce you to a few reliable loan officers that have worked with our clients in the past. We'll talk about the negotiating power that comes with different kinds of loans and weigh your options for your specific situation. If you decide that renting might be better for you at the moment, we can help with too.
Step 2: Search for a property
You will have full access to ALL the homes available in the Maryland market. Through our affiliations, we can even tap into those homes that will be coming on the market soon. As wonderful as that is, it can be overwhelming and time consuming to some. We'll help you narrow it down with our expert local knowledge of Maryland. We will listen and understand your needs and wants. Together we will consider your priorities and only spend time looking at houses that fit your requests.
Step 3: Negotiate the Contract
What is the true market value of the home that you are interested in? Is it priced too high? Is it a bargain that you should jump on? Our team helps home buyers make decisions like this every day, and we'll make sure that you get the best value for your money. Negotiating with sellers can be stressful. We will help you negotiate so that the final contract includes your best possible terms and conditions.
Step 4: Complete the Home Inspection
You should know absolutely everything about the property you are buying. You and a member of our team will view every home that you are interested in, together. Prior to closing we will make you fully aware of any and all inspections available to you. Ultimately it is up to you to choose what inspections you are willing to pay for. After inspections occur, another round of negotiations may be needed. You can feel confident that our team will be there, in step, with you during this.
Step 5: Monitor the Loan and Appraisal Process
We will be there to guide you through any concerns and questions you might have during this process. We work closely with your lender to make sure deadlines are met with the appraisal and your loan. If you have enough capital to to buy without a loan, we can chat about your options to hire an appraiser and whether it's even worth doing so.
Step 7: Final Walk-Through and Closing
Have confidence when signing those final documents. Contracts are full of complicated terms and clauses that can greatly affect your future life in your new home. Working with our team will give you the full benefit of our real estate knowledge and experience.
Step 8: A Client for Life
