Buying a home can be an overwhelming process, but less so if you take things one step at a time. We have found it helpful to our clients to break this process down into a series of 21 Steps. We have listed each step below. If you click on any step, you can read a post describing that item in more detail.
When you choose to work with us, we will also send you a helpful checklist to keep you on track as you navigate through these steps and we will be keeping track of your process step by step as well. There are a lot of moving pieces for a Buyer but we never lose sight of our shared goal: at the end of the process we want to see you enjoying your new home!
