Buying a Home

Find My Dream Home

Purchasing a property is most likely the biggest financial decision you will ever make. Whether this is your first purchase or you are an experienced buyer.

Preparing to Buy

Before you start shopping for your property, it is a good idea to make some preparations.

Choosing an Agent

Here are some factors to consider when choosing your real estate professional.

Time to Shop

Once you’ve gotten those preparations out of the way, It’s time to find the property for you.

Escrow +

An effective agreement is a legal arrangement between you and the the property’s seller.

Moving In

Congratulations – Just a few more points. You’re almost at the end of your buying adventure.

Moving In to your new home

Closing Day

Congratulations – you’re almost at the end of your buying adventure. But, there are still a few loose ends to make sure are taken care of before your big move-in day.

Final Walk-Through Inspection.

The final walk-through inspection takes place the day before or the day of the closing. Visit the property and verify that everything is in working order. Make sure that everything is the same as when you last viewed the property with no extra items left behind or missing.

Home Services and Utilities.

I will provide you with a list of useful telephone numbers for turning on home services and utilities after the closing. These numbers will be helpful in getting your new property up and running.

Be Prepared.

Don’t worry – I am ready and able to assist you if any unforeseen glitch pops up at any stage in your transaction. My experience and the wide-ranging Sotheby’s network can handle any problems you may encounter.

Depending on the outcome of these inspections, one of two things may happen:

1. Either each milestone is successfully closed and the contingencies will be removed, bringing you one step closer to the close, or
2. The buyer, after reviewing the property and the papers, requests a renegotiation of the terms of contract (usually the price).


The Closing Agent will provide a settlement statement which details the financial transactions in your deal. You, the Seller(s), and the closing agent will sign this document, certifying its accuracy. If you are obtaining financing, you will also have to sign any/all documentation required by your lending institution.
If you are unable to attend the closing, just let me know, and we c an make other arrangements.
You can decide how your funds should be received – either wired electronically to theclosing agent’s escrow account or by certified bank check.
Make sure the Seller brings all property keys and other important inform ation you will need to the closing
