Step 1 - Representation and Buyer Agency
We work alongside you on your journey from start to finish and value serving over selling. You get all the benefits of representation, but the commissions are paid by the seller. We provide top-notch service. Every time. As a Real Estate ELP, we are RamseyTrusted.
Step 2 - Pre-Approval for Your Financing
Meet with a lender to determine the amount of loan for which you qualify.
Step 3 - Visiting Homes
Our team will schedule appointments and take you to homes.
Step 4 - Discuss Offer Terms when Home of Choice is Found
A variety of factors affect offer acceptance, such as offer price, type and amount of financing, earnest money amount, appraisal guarantee, inspections, closing date, seller's timeline and home sale contingency.
Step 5 - Make an Offer
You have a clear favorite. The offer can be completed and signed electronically allowing us to move quickly to get the home you want.
Step 5 (continued) - Earnest Money Deposit
This is a check you write to KWRC when you make an offer, about one percent (1%) of the total offer price. It will be cashed when the offer is accepted.
Step 6 - Home Inspection (if in terms of contract)
Common inspections are for structural, mechanical, radon, mold, chimney, well and septic. We have a list of inspectors that we recommend. They are all licensed, insured and bonded.
Step 7 - The Lender's Process
Appraisal - Underwriting - Loan Approval - Clear to Close

All of your time and efforts have paid off! It is time to sign the closing documents and take title to your new home.
