Whether you are a first time homebuyer or a seasoned pro, buying a home can be scary and intimidating. Luckily I am an experienced buyer's agent who can help you navigate the entire process with ease. I am here to help and I find a checklist to be a huge asset for many of my buyers. My personal checklist looks something like this:
The Home Buying Process Checklist:
Provide Realtor a copy of letter
Meeting with Realtor
Research homes online, do drive-bys
Go see homes in person with Realtor
Make an offer!
Earnest money deposit
Choose closing attorney (holds EMD in trust account and does title search on property)
Due diligence money
Due diligence period
Due diligence period
Any other inspections (well water, septic tank, pest, radon, etc.)
Negotiate repairs/ask for money towards closing costs/off purchase price
Final walk-through inspection
Switch utilities to your name
Closing Disclosure (formally HUD-1) 3 days prior to closing
Certified bank check or bank wire transfer for amount on Closing Disclosure
To sum it up (A.K.A. the shortened version):
This may seem like a lot, which is why an initial buyer consultation with me is a must. This is our time to sit down and discuss not only this process in detail, but also to go over exactly what you are looking for in your next home and what the real estate market looks like in the Asheville area. Call, text, or email to set up a date and time!
