Effective March 1, 2022 - Our New Address is 565 East Grand River in Brighton MI
So you're ready to buy a home? Let's talk about your needs and while we're at it, let's get you pre-approved. If you need a lender, I can recommend one but being pre-approved guarantees no delays in submitting an offer.
Now that you're pre-approved, let's go house shopping! New listings will come at you in many directions but I recommend Real Estate One's search app by clicking here. The best thing to do when we find a home is to schedule a showing right away. Homes are selling fast!
You found the perfect home. Now what? Let's get an offer in before the competition does. The amount you offer will totally depend on you and I can assist if necessary. But, there are a lot of other things to consider as well. Contingencies, possession, occupancy, title work, seller concessions, earnest money...the list goes on. These are all negotiable items and I'll make sure you understand everything so there are no surprises along the way.
Speaking of contingencies, the first one is a home inspection. Never buy a home without inspecting it first! An inspector will pull back the skin on a house and reveal anything that's dangerous or hazardous. If the home you're about ready to buy is not "sea worthy", here's your opportunity to withdraw your offer and we'll start looking again.
Okay, you're satisfied with the inspection. Now it's time to stay real focused. We have a deadline to meet and missing it can be a breach of contract. We are going to be working with a lot of people during the due diligence period and their requests may seem endless. The best thing to do, however, is do your assignments right away. I will certainly do mine but my biggest assignment is to keep you organized.
Our due diligence period is over and we checked off all the boxes. It didn't take long and the closing date is here. Congratulations! You have a new home.
