As your personal guide and trustworthy agent, I strive to give you the best of the best. In the years I have spent in the industry, homebuyers have always asked me "What do I need to do when I buy a house?" I've composed a step-by-step guide that organizes buying process to make buying a house simple and fun.
1st: MORTGAGE PRE-APPROVAL
Before you even go looking for a home, you will need to understand your needs and budget.
Getting pre-approved for a mortgage is a great place to start when determining your budget. When the lender approves you for a mortgage it gives you an idea of how much you can afford to buy your new house.
Getting a pre-approval before you search allows you to be ready for when the perfect property comes up. You will have secured your financing ahead of time, allowing you to put down the offers that make sense for your budget.

4th: MAKE AN OFFER NOW
Now that you have found the house that you are set on, it is time to make an offer. Not all offers are the same and here’s where your real estate agent comes in. They will help you with specific terms and conditions that will be specified in the offer like the price you want to pay, financing conditions, or other things like inclusions and exclusions.
Not only it is about the price of the house but you have to carefully look at the other details included in this sale. Appliances, chandeliers, or even minor renovations can also be part of the deal. Shorter or longer closing dates can also be specified in the offer.
If there is something in the offer that doesn’t satisfy the seller, counter offers or negotiations can also be presented to help get a price that you think is fair.
5th: CLOSE THE SALE
There will be closing costs associated with the sale that need to be paid either by or on the closing date. It can include mortgage application fees, inspections and legal fees. But once that’s taken care of, you get your new house.
