Home Buying 101
Brought to you by PRODUCER Realty, bringing you step-by-step guidance through the home buying process!
Know What You Want and Need in a Home
Know what you require in a home including bedrooms, bathrooms, school district, home size, location, etc. Understand the things you want in a home such as a patio, deck, fireplace, etc.
Contact Our Team
Schedule a meeting with one of our expert consultants to gather information pertaining to the current market condition. This meeting is the time to discuss with your agent what type of home and the features you want.
Get Pre-approved for a Mortgage
Talk with a local lender to get pre-approved for a loan. The mortgage lender will calculate your debt-to-income ratio, let you know how much down payment
you need if any, how much your interest rate & points will be, and what type of loan & terms you qualify for.
Finding a Home
Once we have an idea of what you are looking for, we can send you a list of all available homes for sale that match your search criteria.
Make a list of the homes you would like to see
Once we have an idea of what you are looking for, we can send you a list of all available homes for sale that match your search criteria, and you can save your favorite homes in your VIP account on our website. Just let us know when you are available to meet to view them, and we will coordinate showing appointments for you to see the homes you like.
Before you make an offer
We will help you understand the overall market trends and compare market trends in the area you are interested in.
Make an offer
We use our local REALTOR ASSOCIATION contract for sale, and we will make sure we include all the vital contingencies and clauses that give you the best protection.
Our negotiation strategy will help you separate the emotions associated with home buying, and we will negotiate diligently to secure the absolute best overall deal for you.
We will assist you in scheduling inspections and will also make sure that you have the unilateral right to terminate the contract if you are not satisfied with the home inspection.
Once you receive the home inspection report, we will prepare a request for repairs documents with items that you would like the seller to fix.
We will make sure that you do not end up buying a home that is worth less than the contract price by including contingencies that will allow you to terminate the contract if the home does not appraise for at least the contract sales price.
We will help coordinate and supervise the document preparation and provide pre-closing consultation.
Re-Inspection and The Final Walkthrough
This walkthrough lets you make sure that the necessary repairs have been made and that any personal property negotiated in the sale remains on the property and is in good condition.
We will be sure to remind you about contacting the utility companies for your new home.
You have the choice of attorney to use as your closing agent. We will communicate with the attorney that your interests are protected, and that you are presented with a settlement statement detailing the fees before you sign. We will preview the closing documents with you and resolve any last-minute issues that arise before closing. Once the closing is done, you will receive the keys to your new home.
We can help coordinate the move-in and assist with post-closing issues.
