Buying a Home with Top Agent | Team Florida
Congratulations on taking the first step in buying a Florida home!
The process of buying a home can be stressful. Each transaction has its own unique set of challenges and obstacles. That’s why it’s so important to choose carefully when deciding on a real estate agent to represent you in the purchase of a Florida home. You’re not only choosing an agent, you’re also choosing a trusted real estate advisor. Putting a plan in place up front will help ensure a smoother and more enjoyable transaction. We are honored to guide you through this process, and invested in your success!
Milestones of Buying a Home
1. Our First Meeting
Sometimes called a “Buyer Consultation,” this is where we set expectations, discuss your purchase parameters, and personalize a plan. It’s an important first step that shouldn’t be overlooked because it lays the foundation for a happy client/agent relationship.
2. Find the Right Home
We head out and see properties together. Your wants + needs or price parameters might change as you see the options. Keep an open mind and communicate–this is a process that might be quick or might take time.
3. Write the Offer
We review the listing, discuss strategies for making the most competitive and attractive offer, and walk through the terms of the Contract.
4. Due Diligence
This milestone can make or break the transaction. Each deal will have its own set of hurdles to jump over but don’t worry! We will prepare and share with you a “Transaction Timeline” to monitor all deadlines and to ensure we stay compliant with the Contract.
Congratulations! We will guide you up to this final step with instructions on the final walk-through, taking possession of the home, switching over utilities, and homesteading your property.
