Buying a home in the Orlando area?

Believe it or not, buying a home does not have to be a stressful and time-consuming process. Whether you are buying your first home or are a well-informed real estate investor, you need a professional who knows the Orlando real estate market inside and out and, most importantly, knows how to negotiate and handle the real estate transaction on your behalf.

The Home Buying Process

On this page, we will discuss each step of the home buying process in detail. But first, let's take a look at the main points of the process before delving into the details. Feel free to skip to the section that is most important to you:

- Decide to buy x rent a house

- Meet with your Realtor

- Get pre-approved for a mortgage

- Search and select listings

- View lists in person

- Send offer (s) and secure contract

- Complete home inspections and negotiate repairs

- Clearing the assessment

- Compensating for final loan approval

- Closing and finalizing the purchase of your home

- Now that you have an overview of the home buying process, let's take a closer look at each step.

Did you know that 78% of home buyers prefer a quality neighborhood over the size of their home? According to the National Association of REALTORS® 2016 Community Preference Survey, 78% of home buyers surveyed responded that the quality of the neighborhood is more important than the size of the home.

We agree that the “First Quarter” approach is the best when looking for your new home. Therefore, we specialize in providing the resources and guidance needed to locate and choose the best neighborhoods for your new home.

Buying a property can be a rewarding experience if done properly, or very stressful if you are not prepared. Knowing what to do and preparing in advance, you can realize your real estate dreams, avoiding possible pitfalls along the way. Here are some important steps to consider when buying a home or property.

Find a Real Estate Agent (REALTOR®)

Once you decide to buy or rent a home, your next step should be to find a realtor who will help you navigate the process of buying a home. Most specialized real estate agents are members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). If a realtor is not a member of NAR, you can look elsewhere.

Your realtor will ensure that everything goes smoothly, avoiding common home buying mistakes. Since experienced realtors have been involved in hundreds of real estate transactions, they know how to avoid things that can turn their dream of buying a home into a nightmare. Your realtor will know how to find the good neighborhoods and avoid the bad ones. They will help you negotiate the best possible price for the right house in a good neighborhood. Your agent will also be able to provide you with a list of trusted resources and related professionals who can assist you in the process of buying a home.

Meet with your Realtor (REALTOR®)

In most cases, the seller pays our fee, so our service is FREE to you. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

When we meet, we will ensure that we have a firm understanding of your needs, wants and other goals that you may have for your new home. During this meeting, we will answer any questions you may have and cover these main points:

- Your budget

- Deadline

- Your neighborhood requirements

- Your home requirements

Find a mortgage lender

The second step is to find a mortgage broker. As with finding a realtor, having the right mortgage professional on your team is critical. We often see buyers making purchases on the Internet at the lowest possible mortgage rate, with almost no consideration for anything else. This can have disastrous consequences. Unscrupulous predatory lenders will use bait and low-rate exchange tactics to arrest you. After they receive the registration fee and you get stuck, the problems begin. The interest rate changes, calls are not returned, deadlines are missed - you get the picture. There are not many things more stressful than realizing that you have a person who does not care about the financing or does not know what he is doing when the contractual term is approaching.
