Purchasing a home in Brockton with Bella Vista
With a little up-front planning, purchasing a home isn't too confusing, but it still intimidates many people.
We like to supply buyers with an outline of the whole deal so they'll know exactly what to expect.
Below are our nine steps to buying a home.
Should you have questions regarding any of this information or if you're prepared to get started, simply contact us here or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 1 – Prepare to purchase a home
Before you commence your home search, there are a lot of things you should do.
When you start your search, you'll probably want to create an index of items you need, get a feeling for what school districts you'd like to live in, and start working on your budget.
Ensuring your mortgage payment is less than or close to 1/3 of your net monthly income is a good rule of thumb to adhere to.
Step 2 – Get with a real estate agent in Brockton
This is where Bella Vista comes in.
We'll arrange a time to get together so we can talk about why you want to buy a home and get an idea of your plans for the future.
We'll discuss everything from neighborhoods, school districts in the Brockton area, the mortgage industry, to any other economic factors that could affect your buying decision today or in the future.
In addition, we'll help you facilitate the loan process.
Bella Vista partners with some of the finest mortgage professionals in Brockton, so you're in great hands.
They will help you decide which type of loan is best for you, as well as help you get qualified.
Step 3 – Start your search
After our first meeting, we'll begin finding houses on the market that suit your needs.
We'll preview many of the homes and throw out the duds, and then we'll set up appointments to view the houses whenever it's convenient for you.
When we view homes, we'll identify positive features and bad ones. And we'll ask you to tell us about things you like and don't like.
Frequently, buyers amend their list of must-haves as we tour homes and some things become far more essential than others.
If that happens, we'll go back through the listings once more and narrow it down to the house you've been waiting for.
Step 4 – Understand the market
Your agent's knowledge of the Brockton home market is an imperative component in your house search. And we can assure you we're well-versed in all the neighborhoods and school districts, and we will alert you to which areas are "hot" and require prompt action and the ones that are "cold" and allow for more analysis.
As we tour homes, we'll let you know when the seller's list price has room for negotiation and also when we think the house is "priced to sell."
When working with an agent, be mindful and be sure to ask lots of questions. Every REALTOR® in Brockton will tell you they understand the home market.
If it appears they don't know everything, contact us at 7742594110 or e-mail us at email@example.com, and we'd be happy to answer your questions. Our market knowledge will help you stay a step above the rest throughout the entire process.
Step 5 – Find your dream house
We're confident we'll find the home of your dreams in the Brockton area, and when that happens, we'll carefully create your home purchase offer. The offer will be written with your needs in mind. Whenever necessary, We never forget to make contracts contingent upon items like acquiring financing and the results of the home inspection.
When submitting your offer, you'll probably need to present "earnest money." This is a cash deposit submitted to a seller to secure the offer to buy the property, and it's often put towards the closing costs. If the offer is accepted by the seller, we should close within 30 to 60 days afterward. This allows enough time for your mortgage financing.
Step 6 – Negotiate
Most deals aren't closed on the first offer, and it's very common to receive a counter offer. Don't let this discourage you. We'll figure out whether or not to take the counter offer, present our own counter offer, or decline the seller's offer and go on.
The state of the market determines how aggressively we negotiate the deal.
We'll also work within your financing budget. And when it's all said and done, we'll put together a deal that is best for you.
Step 7 – Obtain your loan
Once we sign the final deal, you'll begin working with your mortgage lender to close the loan.
If you're pre-qualified, it shouldn't take very long at all, but you should to keep in close contact with your mortgage lender.
And we'll deal with all the property information your mortgage lender will need to close the loan.>
Step 8 – Close the deal
You'll get a Loan Estimate (LE) detailing your closing costs from your mortgage lender within three days of getting your application.
The estimate rests on the loan amount, and RESPA requirements require that it has to contain all closing costs and fall within a narrow range of accuracy. we'll review the estimate and let you know if it all looks okay.
Then we'll close on your house. This will probably occur at a title company or escrow office and will most likely be a smooth and easygoing event.
Step 9 – Move in
Success! It's time to move into your new house. Enjoy it. And if you need anything or have any questions, make sure you call us at 7742594110 or send us an e-mail.
