Buying a home is one of the most exciting and stressful things that most people will do in their lives. It’s a process that is as much art as it is science. We are here to help guide you through your journey from search to closing table and beyond.
How to start your home buying journey:
Find an Agent
When searching for a home, communication is key. A licensed agent with a history of expertise and on-the-ground knowledge of the area will be a huge advantage in your search.
Define Your Search
The next step is to figure out what you want in a home at the price you can afford. In what area are you looking to live? What style and size home do you prefer? How long do you think you will live there? In our experience, the better defined the search is on the front end, the greater the chance that you find the home you are looking for.
Set Up a Collection
Compass has a great collaboration tool called Collections, which allows you and your agent to set up a search based on your price range and needs and then to seamlessly communicate on listings that your preferences generate.
Pound the Pavement
Once you have narrowed down your potential list, it’s time to go look at properties!
Here for you for the long haul. From market education to connecting you with local designers, contractors, or lawn care providers to offering simple tips on necessary maintenance to keep your home in top shape, we’re here to help you way beyond the closing table.
