Below is the 10-Step Process For Buying a House in Scottsdale
1) Find The Right Agent
You want to work with someone with an extensive network, knowledge of the industry, and an understanding of the local housing market.
2) Prepare Finances
You want to determine what kind of lifestyle you want and what you can afford. This includes also checking your credit score.
3) Get Pre-Approved
If you’re planning on getting a mortgage, you will want to submit your financial documents to get pre-approved for the mortgage.
4) Look For The Perfect Home
Finding the perfect home should be the most exciting part of the process. Your real estate agent will work with you to find the home of your dreams.
5) Make An Offer
Once you find the right home, we will sit down and look at recent sales and current buyer activity in the area to create the perfect offer.
6) Order An Inspection
During the inspection period, we will schedule an inspection with a reputable home inspector to do a thorough inspection of the home.
7) Negotiate Final Offer
It isn’t uncommon to find issues after the home inspection, and those issues tend to result in another round of negotiations for credits or fixes.
8) Order Appraisal
Your lender will arrange for a third party appraisal to provide an independent estimate of the value of the home you are buying.
9) Schedule The Move
After the process is completed, it is time to plan to move. Whether you plan to hire movers or handle packing yourself, it is good to plan your move date.
10) Closing Day
Closing is when you sign ownership and insurance paperwork and receive keys to your new home! Then, it is time to celebrate!
