There are basically just 5 steps to buying a new home!
Get pre-qualified for a loan. Getting pre-qualified gives you an idea of what amount you can borrow and what your payments might look like in advance. This can give you a big advantage at different stages of your home search, from helping you prepare your budget to strengthening your negotiating position with the seller when you’re making an offer on a home. John Periatt from Evolve Bank & Trust would love to get the loan process started for you.
The next step is to find a Realtor that will represent your best interests. Hire an expert real estate agent to take you through the entire home buying process. A Realtor will negotiate for you, manage all of the paperwork and answer all of your questions along the way. Click here to learn more about the Buyer Specialists on The Gabbard Team.
It’s time to find your new home! The Gabbard Team’s website allows you access to the entire Cincinnati MLS. At thegabbardteam.com you can search by area, price range, type of home and more. Save your search, favorite homes you like and make notes for you to refer back to – all from our website. Your Gabbard Team real estate agent will keep you updated with listing alerts as homes that meet your criteria hit the market.
Once you and your real estate agent have found your new home and negotiated a contract, it is time to get a home inspection. You will want to be notified of any existing or potential problems with the home. Choose a home inspection company that is thorough and experienced. The Gabbard Team has a list of preferred vendors that they work with such as Jon Helton, from Home Team Inspection.
The last step is to close on your home with a title agency such as Vantage Land Title. At the closing, a settlement agent from the title company will bring all the necessary documentation, explain it to the parties, collect closing costs and distribute monies. The title company will make sure that the new titles, deeds and other documents are filed appropriately.
