Home Purchases

Let's go through the process of purchasing a home. I am also able to assist with mobile home purchases on leased land and their own land as well as vacant land purchases.

Step 1: Determine Your Budget and Financial Readiness

  • Assess your financial situation, including your income, savings, and credit score.

  • Use online calculators or consult with your mortgage broker to determine a realistic budget and understand how much you can afford to borrow.


Step 2: Engage With Your Mortgage Broker (Me)

  • Contact your Mortgage Broker and inform them of your intention to purchase a home.

  • Provide necessary financial information, including income documentation, bank statements, and tax returns.


Step 3: Find a Real Estate Agent

  • Research and interview Real Estate Agents who have experience in the local market.

  • Choose an agent who understands your needs, preferences, and budget.

Step 4: Obtain a Pre-Approval

  • Work with your Mortgage Broker to complete the pre-approval process.

  • Provide all the necessary documentation and information.

  • Your Mortgage Broker will assess your financial situation, review your documents, and provide you with a pre-approval letter stating the amount you are approved to borrow.


Step 5: Start House Hunting

  • Collaborate with your Real Estate Agent to search for properties within your budget.

  • Visit potential homes, considering your needs, location preferences, and other factors.


Step 6: Make an Offer

  • When you find a suitable home, work with your Real Estate Agent to make an offer.

  • Discuss the offer price, contingencies, and any other terms you wish to include.

  • Your agent will present the offer to the seller's agent on your behalf.


Step 7: Negotiate and Accept the Offer

  • The seller may accept your offer as is, reject it, or propose a counteroffer.

  • Work with your Real Estate Agent to negotiate and reach mutually acceptable terms.


Step 8: Finalize the Loan Application

  • Once your offer is accepted, contact your Mortgage Broker to initiate the formal loan application process.

  • Provide any additional documents or information required by the lender.


Step 9: Conduct Home Inspections and Appraisal

  • Schedule a home inspection to assess the condition of the property.

  • Arrange for a professional appraisal to determine the home's market value.

  • Review the inspection and appraisal reports to ensure there are no significant issues.


Step 10: Loan Processing and Underwriting

  • Your Mortgage Broker will work with the lender to process your loan application.

  • The lender will verify the information, review your credit history, and underwrite the loan.


Step 11: Obtain Homeowner's Insurance

  • Shop for homeowner's insurance policies and select one that meets the lender's requirements.

  • Provide proof of insurance to your lender before closing.


Step 12: Closing Preparation

  • Coordinate with your Real Estate Agent, Mortgage Broker, and the seller's agent to prepare for the closing.

  • Schedule a closing date and time that works for all parties involved.


Step 13: Closing the Deal​

  • Review and sign all necessary documents, including the loan agreement, title deed, and insurance paperwork.

  • Pay the closing costs, which may include fees for the loan origination, appraisal, title search, and other related services.


Step 14: Ownership Transfer and Moving in

  • After the closing, the ownership of the property is transferred to you.

  • Coordinate to obtain the keys and officially take possession of the home.

  • Start planning your move and begin the process of setting up utilities and changing your address.


Remember that the specific steps and timeline may vary depending on your location, the complexity of the transaction, and individual circumstances. Working closely with your mortgage broker and real estate agent will help ensure a smooth home-buying process.
