Decide What You Want:

Before you start looking, make a list of what you want. According to your priority, make a scale of preference. Some areas to consider are:

  • Location?
  • Type of home?
  • Age of the home?

 

Determine Your Price Range:

The first step for a home buyer is to determine his/her realistic purchasing ability.

 

Purchase and Sale Agreement:

Once an offer on a property has been made by a buyer and accepted by the seller, they enter into a legal contract known as a Purchase and Sale Agreement. This document outlines the specific terms and conditions of the transaction and is acknowledged by both parties by the signing of the document.

 

Negotiation/ Make an offer:

Once sellers receive an offer, they decide whether to accept, counter or reject the offer. Negotiation is the key to getting the best deal. This involves everything from the sales price, concessions, and financing. Allen Goldstein have professional negotiators who represent your interests during the entire process of a proeprty transaction.

 

Financing:

You’ll need a loan if you’re not paying cash for the home. Finding the right lender or mortgage broker is not an easy task. You may work directly with a specific lender on your final loan approval or investigate the mortgage broker you wish to work with (who represents various lenders).

 

Closing:

At closing, all the paperwork is signed by the buyer and seller at the title company's office; each signed document will be explained to you. When documents are officially recorded, both parties will pay any settlement fees. Before to closing, you'll receive a settlement document outlining any fees for which you apply for. After closing is finalized and recorded, you will get a deed, transferring ownership rights to you and the home is yours!
