The 5 Step Buying Process

Buying your home is an exciting and often a nervous time.  Treu Group Real Estate has a proven 5 Step Process that breaks it down into the best way to buy a home. This Buying Process increases the chance of finding the right home, in the right time frame and have everything go smoothly. 

Step #1. 

Step #1: Get Pre-ApprovedGet Pre-Approved. The pre-approval process is critical so that you know what you can afford to buy before you begin to look at homes. What does it mean to be pre-approved? The lender will look at all of your financials including your income, liabilities and tax returns, your credit and your work history. If you are self employed, the pre-approval process could be even more complicated. Often we see a pre-qualification not a pre-approval.  Why is that harmful to you as a buyer? Many sellers will not consider an offer without a proper pre-approval so you might lose your dream home. The other thing to consider is the reputation of your lender. In multiple offers this could be the deciding factor.

Step #2.

Step #2: Meet for a brief consultation.Meet for a brief consultation. This step is the one that buyers want to avoid the most however it is so critical. We would rather ask you 50 questions and show you 5 homes instead of ask you 5 questions and show you 50 homes. Spending less than an hour together will allow us to get a clear picture on the home you desire, learn about the market and discuss the process. Additionally, you will be able to have us represent you as a buyer's agent.  The great news is that the seller pays us so you can have someone on your side.

Step #3.

Step #3: Select the right homesSelect the right homes. This is done by taking your criteria and our expert knowledge of the area and finding the first homes to view. We will get you in a few to get your feedback. It is ok to fall in love with the first home you see.


Step #4.

Step #4: NegotiateNegotiating to get the outcome you want. Putting the offer together is critical and takes experience to handle all of the emotions in a transaction. Our goal is to understand what is important to you as well as the seller. It is not always about the price for some sellers. There are ways to often make a deal more attractive.

Step #5

Step #5: Contract to closeNow the fun begins, Contract to Close. You might be saying what is that? The contract to close phase is what will determine if you get into your home or if your deal falls apart. We have a dedicated person that is there to walk you thru the transaction and the next steps. Things like financing, appraisals, inspections and last minute obstacles. During the contract to close phase there may be issues that need to be negotiated. The goal for our team is to see issues and challenges to avoid the last minute issues.
