Buying

Let me help you every step of the way. When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.


Working with you, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details and steps involved with the actual purchase.


I am always staying up to date with the current market and I have a strong understanding of fair market value. I am able to leverage this knowledge to help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and "must-sees" so you do not miss out.

Your First Step: Loan Pre-Qualification

Most experts agree that the critical first step to any purchase is to get pre-qualified with an experienced mortgage specialist. This can be done over the phone or email and takes very little time. I cannot stress enough how important using the right individual is for this process. My contacts are all 100% dedicated to doing mortgage business and this is all they do day-in and day-out. They are truly the best. 


Feel free to call me or review my list of partners right here on my website partnerships page. All of the individuals and true professionals in the industry and have your best interests at heart. They will provide you great advice on which mortgage product is the right one for you. Each of these folks has a proven track record of successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients. I work with a truly amazing group of professionals who are service oriented and make the process of obtaining a mortgage simple and straight forward. 

 The Next Step: Defining Your Needs

Once you have your mortgage pre-qualification in place it is time for me to find you the right home! Your next step is to ask yourself why you want to buy a home...To stop paying rent? Start building equity? Have a place of your own? Raise a family? Entertain business associates? Moving up to a bigger house?


Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves." Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Considerations can include:

  • Community/neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new)
  • Schools
  • Recreational facilities
  • Community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment, etc.
  • Home type/style
  • Size and space needed
  • Number of bedrooms
  • Garage type (attached or detached? Single/double/triple?)
  • Basement development 
  • Age of home
  • Physical location of home (Remember in real estate it is location, location, location!!!)

There are no right or wrong answers and the motivation to buy is unique to each client. I will work my hardest to ensure we can achieve as many of your goals as possible.
