Steps To Buying a home

Start by booking a call with me and having a simple conversation about your home buying goals.

After our initial call, based on all the newfound information, I'll recommend a few local neighborhoods that would be the most suitable areas for your unique needs and desired Greater Boston Lifestyle.

Whether you are relocating here or not, we will still plan on scheduling a suitable time to go out and tour some specific neighborhoods and areas that you're most interested in. The tour is an excellent time for me to learn more about some of the most important things you're looking for in your ideal Greater Boston neighborhood.

After you have filled out our VIP Greater Boston Home Finder form I’ll personally review the details and begin selecting the most suitable options and schedule showings for us to view the homes right away.

After our search efforts have paid off and we have finally found the one, I'll carefully prepare and review the offer and all the necessary documents with you. I'll advise you on the price, terms, and conditions and explain what happens next. Then I'll negotiate until we have an accepted offer with the price, terms, and conditions you are pleased with.

Now that we have an accepted offer (well done and congrats)
We can begin getting necessary documents to the mortgage broker, scheduling a home inspection, getting in touch with a lawyer for any real estate-related advice regarding the transaction, and carefully reviewing and approving the necessary title, disclosure, and city files. Once you are satisfied with everything and have the mortgage approved and, if required, appraisal, we will remove subjects and hand in our deposit.

After the deposit has been handed in, the sale is now firm. Now the most challenging part is waiting until completion and possession day when you'll get to move into your new Greater Boston home.

Expert Advice

I will help you negotiate and secure the best possible price and terms for you. If you don’t find any home in your price range, I suggest that it’s reasonable to look at homes that are over your maximum price range.

This is to anticipate a potential price drop that could be negotiated. Over my 25 years of experience, I’ve dealt with this kind of situation regularly. It’s very important that you’re available either by phone or in person in the event a counter offer is made on your offer.
