Home Purchase Basics 

Congratulations on your decision to buy a new home! There are many important things to consider throughout the process, especially if you're a first-time homebuyer. Here's some information that will keep you on track.

In General.....

A home purchase may be your largest financial transaction to date, so it's important to make the right decisions and to keep an eye on the details. With the assistance of your Real Estate Agent and Mortgage Loan Officer, it should be efficient, pleasant, and ultimately a rewarding experience.

Count On Your Real Estate Agent To.....

  • Present homes that suit your needs as you've defined them.
  • Negotiate the best deal for you. With a Pre-Approval letter from us in hand, your Real Estate Agent will be able to demonstrate that you are a qualified and capable buyer. This may make the difference between the Seller accepting your offer or someone else's.

Count On Your Mortgage Loan Officer To....

 

  • Assist you in selecting the best loan to meet your personal situation and goals.
  • Keep you informed of your loan status throughout the entire process.
  • Keep your Real Estate Agent informed of our loan progress (Note: your personal information is always kept confidential between you and us; only deal points and progress are shared).
  • Get the appropriate loan for you at the best rate and fees.

Count On Yourself To....

  • Keep your Real Estate Agent informed of any questions or concerns as they develop.
  • Keep the process moving by providing documentation and decisions as soon as reasonably possible. By doing so, many of the details are taken care of early in the process so you can comfortably concentrate on any last-minute details or events that require your attention.
  • Emjoy purchasing you home, but do remain objective throughout - to make the business decisions that are best for you.
  • Make sure you are pre-approved as early as possible. This will put the power of financing behind you so you can concentrate on selecting your home.
