Home Buyer Information

Buying a home is an exciting but often overwhelming experience, particularly if you are buying your first home. The process involves a lender, pre-approval, identifying wants and needs, viewing properties, preparing an offer, negotiations, inspections, contracts, attorneys, appraisal, title company, contingencies and their elimination, mortgage approval, survey, walk-through, planning the move, the closing and more.

In our area it takes about 60 days from the time your offer to purchase is accepted until closing day. As an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABRĀ®), I have the skills it takes to guide you through the process and turn your home buying experience into a HAPPY HOME!
