Since your home will most likely be the largest investment you will ever make, it's important to stay organized and focused throughout the process. Whether you are downsizing or upgrading, we will be there with you every every step of the way.
Pre-approval for a home loan is a good gauge of how much you can borrow and it shows home sellers that you have the backing to buy. Know your total budget, which not only includes the price of the home but also closing costs and fees. Closing costs include taxes, lender fees and title fees a homebuyer pays at settlement. Title insurance protects against losses and legal expenses you may incur should a claim arise and question your ownership.

Also consider post-purchase expenses such as moving fees, security systems and furnishings, property taxes, utility bills, etc.

Anticipate your future needs, such as will your family be growing or will your job location be changing? Prioritize your list and decide what features are a must have and what amenities can be sacrificed. Having a vision of what you want makes it easier to communicate what you are looking for.
