What's Involved in Buying a Home?

How The Purchase Process Works

In Simple Terms: A buyer finds a home, negotiates the terms of a purchase contract with the seller, gets an appraisal to verify value, orders a home inspection to check under the hood, and then signs final documents at the closing table where funds are distributed.

Since local market conditions, location, rates, and property availability can complicate the process, having a trusted mortgage and real estate professional in your corner will help you avoid unnecessary anxiety.

Buying a new home is literally a team sport since there are so many tasks, important timelines, documents, and responsibilities that all need special care and attention.


Besides working with a professional team that you trust, it’s important that the individual players have the ability to effectively communicate and execute important decisions together as well.
