Buying a Home

Buying a home is a big investment, and requires a clear understanding of the long-term financial commitment made by the buyer. When you decide to buy a new home, knowledge and skill of the real estate market is the key for success.

  • Suggest ways to accrue a down payment, and explain alternative financing methods  
  • Obtain a mortgage counselor, and arrange for "pre-approved" status for a smoother transaction
  • Negotiate the best price and terms, and present your offer and counter offers until an agreement is reached
