Beginning your home search can feel overwhelming.
At Prestige Coastal, 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 dream home's "must have" list.
Be prepared to dig into paperwork during this part of the process. We will need pay stubs, W2’s, and tax returns. The lender will do a full review and then tell you what you will be able to borrow in order to purchase a home. This is a vital step in the home buying process!
You’ll get notifications about the listings that we know you'll be excited about. 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.
This is when the buying process gets really fun! We’ll go to open houses and schedule viewings from the listing alerts you loved. We’ll talk about how the budget works and make sure that we find you the perfect home.
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, and your future home is going through appraisal and inspection. This is one of the last steps before you get the keys to your home! 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.
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!
