Step-by-Step Process

#1 Finding the Right Home

So many homes on the market, but only one is the best one out there for you. Your search starts online, and then moves into showings, where your specialist buyer’s agent will advise you on each home’s intricacies. No pressure here: take all the time you need.

#2: Making the Offer

You’ve found your dream home, and it’s within your budget! Now it’s time to make an offer. Negotiations can be especially tricky as a first-timer, but that’s why you have a buyer’s agent at your side. We’ll make the offer and negotiate with the listing agent on your behalf, so you can get the best price possible.

#3: Sealing the Deal

Your offer was accepted, and it’s time to move in!.. well, almost. Before the big day, there is important paperwork and legal documents that need to be addressed. Your buyer’s agent will handle most of this, but you’ll be kept in the loop: as a first-timer, experience is priceless!
