Beginning the 🏡 buying process can feel overwhelming.
At House Addicts, we like to make the home buying process seamless. We’ll work together to make each step as simple and easy as possible.
We broke it down into these 8 steps:
Let’s get to know each other! We’ll sit down and talk through the process of buying a home with us. Come prepared with your ideal home's "must have" list. Dreaming of a big backyard to entertain during the summer? We want to know! Are you a huge Broncos fan and want a finished basement to enjoy the game? Let's find one!
Getting pre-qualified is the beginning of the mortgage process. You supply a bank or lender with a financial summary that includes debt, income, and assets. From there you will get an approximation of the mortgage you will qualify for.
Getting pre-approved is the next step in the process. Once you get pre-approved the lender will tell you the specific mortgage amount you are approved for.
We have several lenders who we can connect you with to make this this process easy!
Based on all the intel we gather at our first meeting, we'll create a private portal for you through the MLS. Each day you’ll get notifications about the listings that we know you'll be excited about. The best homes in our market are selling quickly, so be sure to let us know if one (or more) jumps out at you so that we can move to the next step and schedule a viewing right away!
This is when the buying process gets really fun! We’ll schedule viewings on all of the homes that you've marked as possibilities. As we go through each one we will talk abut the pros & cons of the neighborhood, layout, finishes, etc. We’ll also talk about the home prices and how those will affect your ideal budget.
A little scary, but very exciting! One of three things will happen when putting in an offer on a house: the offer is accepted, it’s rejected, or you get a counteroffer. We’ll walk you through each of those possibilities and how to handle them. Once the offer is accepted and your finances are in order, we'll move forward to the next step!
The sellers accepted your offer (YAHOO!) and your future home is now going through appraisal and inspection processes. The appraisal guarantees that the price of the home matches the condition of the home and the inspection makes sure that everything in the home is functioning properly and there are no major issues inside. This is one of the last steps before you get the keys to your home!
It’s time to dot the I’s and cross the T’s because you’re closing on your home! This step in the process includes going through all of the final paperwork and signing your name. Remember to bring all of the paperwork you’ve collected along the way, and your down payment.
Grab a bottle of champagne and toast to your new home! Congratulations, you’re officially a homeowner!
