The hombuying process can be daunting, especially for first time homebuyers. There are many steps involved and it can be confusing to know what to do first. This is where your Real Estate Professional comes in.
A good REALTOR® will sit down with you and discuss not only the type of property you're looking for but the lifestyle you want. By sharing that information, he/she can get to work finding you properties that may work for you, coordinating showings and guide you through the offer process.
To make it easy, I've drafted an easy to follow pictoral that shows you the basic steps involved in the purchase of a property. Of course, this isn't the case for all real estate transactions, but it gives you an idea of the steps involved.
