It can be intimidating to make that step towards homeownership. The reality is it isn’t all that difficult, especially with professional help. Many homeowners agree that homeownership was the best investment they ever made. For more information contact Chris Hageman (480) 486-9334

1. Get Informed

• Speak to a local Real Estate Agent who can get you to a lender that can best suit you and your family’s needs.
• Get pre-approval from a lender for your loan.
• They’ll need your pay stubs, W-2 tax returns and bank statements.

2. Home Search

• A realtor will send you a list of homes based on your needs (ex: 3bed, 2 bath, big backyard.)
• Let the realtor know which homes you like and schedule a time to go see the homes.
• When you find the home you love have your realtor write an offer.

3. Under Contract

• When your offer gets accepted you will be Under Contract!
• You will need to have your Earnest Money ready for the Title Company. Earnest Money shows that you are serious about purchasing the home and is required when going under contract.

4. Road to Closing

• You will need to have a home inspection
• Appraisal (home value)
• A final walkthrough of the property to make sure the condition is the same.

5. Nearing the finish line

• Closing Disclosure goes over the details of your loan and what amount you will need to bring to the final closing table.

6. Finish Line

• You will have your final signing at the Title Company.
• Lender will be working on finalizing your loan.

7. Keys

• Title company will let you and your realtor know when it’s been recorded at the county to become public record giving the world notice that you now own that home.
• Your realtor will then hand you the keys to your new home! Congratulations, you did it!
