Have you ever wondered what it actually takes to purchase a home?
Many of my clients have started their home buying journey on the web. Read all the blogs, Pinterest all your favorite home decor ideas and research all the ways to save for that down payment! All of these things are great! Wonderful ways to get in the mindset of owning a home. But what does it really look like to walk or rather run through the home buying process in today's market?
The check list can be quite massive.. Pre- approval letters, research on neighborhoods and school districts, contracts, inspections, appraisals, title and money, money money! I am here to tell you that it is OK to feel overwhelmed. I get it! My most common advice to new buyers or a buyer who just hasn't purchased in a long time is to begin at the beginning. It seems silly but its the truth. Meet with your Realtor and find out where the starting line should be. We are fantastic resources for you! You can research all you want online, read all the blogs and make all the checklists but, until you meet with a real live person and talk about the realities of buying a home you will be living in the land of the unknown.
We love meeting with new buyers and walking through this process.
It's what we do!

A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door, and the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there.
This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.
Thank you for spending the time in getting me into my new home! And for putting up with apprehensive me during the process. I am happy in my new townhome and although still getting settled in, I am enjoying it. Again, thank you for your knowledge of knowing how to put it all together with selling & buying. Everything worked as you said it would!
