Home Buyer Tips: The "Why" is important too!

The home buying process is logical and orderly - really!  Still it is very easy for first time home buyers as well as those with experience to get confused by all the "Do this" and "Don't do this" directions along the way.

All this direction and advice is part of the real estate agent's job.  

I have found when a home buyer gets the "why" as well as the advice things go a bit more smoothly.  Coincidentally the same is true when working with home sellers in Melbourne, Florida.


Here is a general summary of how to buy a house in Florida:

The process of purchasing a new house or condo is not what I would call easy but with the right steps done in the right order it can be smooth. 

Here is a quick summary…
  1. Get a mortgage pre-approval. This is not just an online application that gives you a pre-qualification but rather a real application.   
  2. Find a local knowledgeable real estate agent. 
  3. Find house and get offer accepted.
  4. Have inspections done.
  5. Close the transaction.
  6. Move in.
There are a few more minor, yet very important steps, as well but the above steps provides the big picture.
