1. Find an agent.
At Roby Realty, our clients come first. Find an agent that is right for you, or call us today at 614-657-7000.
2. Decide on a mortgage -- and get preapproved.
It's important to get all your financial ducks in a row before making an offer. Ask your agent to recommend a financing consultant to make the process as seamless as possible.
3. Start house hunting and decide on your "must haves."
House hunting can be a fun and exciting process. However, it can also be a bit stressful, as there a lot of homes out there! Your agent will work with you to find homes that meet your needs and are within your budget. Be sure to make a list of what you absolutely must find in a home—and which features would be nice extras.
4. Make an offer!
So you've found your dream home-- and now it's time to make an offer. Be sure to work with your agent to make an informed decision and don't be afraid to ask questions. Here are some things to consider:
- List price
- Market Analysis
- Cost of improvements
5. The inspection and beyond.
Before closing, it’s important to work with your agent to perform some due diligence. An inspection and appraisal will help know what you are getting into and ensure the home’s value before you complete the purchase.
You’re in the homestretch! Your agent will work with you every step of the way to make sure you are prepared on the day of closing.
