Steps to Homebuying


    Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions – both financially and emotionally – you will make in your lifetime. If you’re a first-time buyer, you’re probably thrilled about making the jump from apartment renting to owning your own house. While you’re excited, however, you also may be a bit overwhelmed by the procedures involved. Relocating or move-up buyers have the advantage of past experience, but still might need a refresher course on the intricacies of the process.

    The buying process involves several steps, from finding a REALTOR® to making an offer to closing the deal. Whether you’re a first-time or experienced buyer, you’ll find an array of information in this section that will assist you on your way to realizing your goal of homeownership.
