Home Purchase Basics

The home buying process can be confusing, especially if you’ve never gone through the process before. To help you out, we’ve put together a quick and dirty primer of the information you need to know. That way, you’ll never find yourself so confused that you’re not even sure what questions to ask.

How your Real Estate Agent can help:

  • Weed out the overpriced homes and the other homes that don’t meet your needs
  • Show you the homes that are actually worth your time to check out
  • Help you figure out which home is a good buy and which home might lose you money in the long run
  • Negotiate the sale for you. Having a pre-qualification letter from us will help your realtor prove that you’re obviously the best bid to accept (in the event that your seller has multiple bids on the house you want)

How your Mortgage Broker and Loan Officer can help:

  • Assist you in finding the best loan for your situation – this is hugely important as the right loan can save you thousands of dollars over the life of the loan. That’s money in the bank (or a really cool vacation)
  • Make sure you know your loan status during the whole process
  • Make sure your Real Estate Agent knows your loan progress (but not any of your personal financial details – we’ll keep those to ourselves. Confidentiality is awesome!)
  • Help you get the best rates and fees. You’ll save money up front and throughout the life of your loan.

How you can help yourself:

  • Get pre-approved as quickly as possible so that you can focus on the important thing: finding a really cool home.
  • Stay in touch with your Real Estate Agent so that you can ask questions and talk about your concerns
  • Make sure you’re able to find documentation that you might need and that you’re up to making big decisions as they’re needed
  • Have fun with the process, but don’t forget it’s also a business decision: it will make a huge impact on your financial future. No pressure.
