Find The Right Real Estate Agent
A real estate agent will assist you in finding the right home for you and will guide you throughout the entire purchase process.
Meet with Lender
Figure out How Much You Can Afford. A pre-qualification will help you determine the home price you can afford and will present you as a qualified buyer to the seller.
Do some research on school districts, public transportation, crime statistics etc. to make sure the neighborhood is right for you and your family. You can find information here in Homeinqueens.com
Look for the Right Home
The internet is one of the best tools for finding the home you are looking for. Feel free to do a home search on our website. Your real estate agent will also search for homes that match your needs. You will then visit the homes until you find the right one!
Make an Offer
Once you have chosen a home to buy, your real estate agent will help you submit an offer and negotiate the price and terms of the purchase.
After the seller accepts your offer, a home inspector should check for evidence of any leaks, faulty wiring, pests and harmful materials such as mold, lead paint and asbestos. This would cost you a few hundred dollars but not getting an inspection can cost you more money in the end.
Apply for a Mortgage
There are many different types of mortgages and programs out there, sit down with your mortgage lender and find the one that suits you.
Final Walk Through
Your real estate agent will show you the home usually 24 hours before the closing and will assist you in revising that the property is ready.
Closing, Move In and Enjoy!
