A critical first step before your search begins is to get pre-approved for a mortgage loan. Your Harry Norman, REALTORS® trusted advisor will connect you to our preferred mortgage partner, Prosperity Home Mortgage. Based on your income and credit history, your lender will determine how much you’re able to borrow, which will help you determine the price range for your search.
Your Harry Norman, REALTORS® trusted advisor will identify the properties that align with your needs and create a showing packet for the homes you will visit together.
Once you find “the one,” your Harry Norman, REALTORS® trusted advisor will assist you with submitting an offer; an agreement to pay a certain price for the home. If your offer is lower than the list price, the seller will likely return with a counter-offer price, which you can choose to accept, reject, or make another offer. Your advisor will provide advice and negotiation tactics to ultimately reach an agreement with the seller on price and terms.
Although terms may vary, you will have a limited timeframe per your agreement to perform inspections and survey the property. Then, your Harry Norman, REALTORS® trusted advisor will help you address any items of concern.
A final walk-through of the property is performed just prior to closing. The walk-through confirms that no damage has been done to the home since the time of the inspection, that the major systems and appliances are in working order, and any inspection items have been addressed.
Once all the conditions of the contract have been satisfied, the closing is held. The closing documents are signed, payment is exchanged, and you will receive the keys to your new home!
