How Can an Agent Help Me Buy a Home?Buying a home can be an overwhelming process. From financing to negotiating to closing, there are a lot of moving pieces that can leave homebuyers bewildered. Your Realtor Boris can help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. By working with Boris [who knows the ins and outs of the real estate industry], you’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience. Here are some of the key areas that he can help you with:
Getting pre-approved by a lender
By providing some basic information about your income, savings, and debt, you can be pre-approved by a reputable lender. The lender will then go over your financing options, what monthly payment amount you can afford, discuss the best loan programs available, and what you can expect for down payment requirements and closing costs.
Choosing a home
For most buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. To make this simpler Boris can assist you with this process, by offering objective information about each property you look at. From local community information to home-specific details [like condition and amenities], Boris can help you find exactly what you’re looking for and that you are certain of your decision.
Making an offer
Once you’ve found the home you desire, Boris will research the recent market sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair offer price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, Boris will then help you structure an offer and negotiate to get the very best deal possible.
Closing or settlement is rather complex and can be a complicated process. For our DC Metro area, the title company handles the closing process. Your Realtor Boris is there for you all along the way to help and ensure that everything goes smoothly.
