Buying Your Home

To buy a home is an exciting period in your life, whether you’re a first-time homebuyer or a seasoned pro. This process can also be challenging and confusing, even for those who have been through it before. Rules and regulations change, the housing market is never at a stand-still and it can be frustrating to try to navigate through all of the information.

The Complexities of Home-buying

Even if you’ve purchased a home in the past, buying one today is a lot different. Increased regulations for lenders often means more work for you. The importance of understanding the process has never been greater than it is now. Unfamiliar terms, complex documents and a long to-do list can scare away many potential home buyers. It’s never been more important to have a real estate agent you can trust than right now.

What You Should Expect from an Agent

A knowledgeable agent will sit down with you in the beginning of the process and seek to understand who you are. They will ask the right questions and answer any you may have to help you feel comfortable with the next step. They’ll offer advice but never pressure you to make a decision you aren’t ready for.

Once you’re ready to make an offer, you need an agent to help you understand the next steps, from getting a home inspection to finding homeowner’s insurance. They will ensure you are continually moving forward to the all-important closing date.

What I Will Do For You

My goal is to represent the best interests of the buyers in the Centerville area. I want to help them move through the home-buying process from the first steps when they are trying to decide what home to purchase to the final closing date when they receive the keys to their new property.
