Buyer Checklist

Our agents look forward to meeting with you and discussing your priorities and life circumstances. During the course of the transaction we work closely with other professionals in the real estate industry such as lenders, inspectors, title companies, etc. who we will introduce you to if you do not already have preferred vendors. Some things to think about as you get ready to contact us:

  • Evaluate your budget – know what you want to spend for a down payment as well as monthly expenditures (i.e.; mortgage payment, utilities, insurance, association fees, etc.). This is where the lender’s expertise comes in play as they advise you on various lending options and the best way to use your funds.
  • Obtain mortgage pre-approval letter
  • Prioritize your needs – location, size, features, school district, etc.
  • Identify your timeline for moving and, if needed, selling your current residence
  • Explore different neighborhoods to identify your preferred needs
  • Research schools in the selected neighborhood(s) –
