We recommend the following 9 steps:

  5. Shop for a home

  6. Make an offer

  7. Get a home inspection - offer should be based upon this

  8. Shop for homeowners insurance

  9. Sign papers

 
How much home can you afford?

Your income, credit rating, current monthly expenses, down payment and the interest rate are items that are necessary to find out how much home you can afford. The Mortgage Calculator to the right provides an approximate payment amount for the price range home you are considering.

Make an offer

Discuss the offer amount & process of making the offer with your real estate agent. If the seller counters your offer, you may need to negotiate until you both agree to the terms of the sale.

Offer based upon a home inspection

Make your offer contingent on a home inspection. An inspection will tell you about the condition of the home, and can help you avoid buying a home that needs major repairs.
