Buy a Home in Seattle

Finding the right home, at a price within your budget, that is in a neighborhood that checks all of your boxes, is no small task. That’s why most buyers choose to work with a licensed real estate professional, like myself, to guide them through the process. I will work right away to get you a list of properties that fit your search preferences and take you out to see homes and neighborhoods in Seattle. We will continue our search until we find the home you are dreaming of!

      Why buy…

“I will forever believe that buying a home is a great investment. Why? Because you can’t live in a stock certificate. You can’t live in a mutual fund.” 

– Oprah Winfrey

THE BUYING PROCESS

01
Get Preapproved

Make sure you have your downpayment and meet with a mortgage lender to get preapproved. 

02
Let's Meet

Once you are preapproved, it's time for us to sit down and discuss what you are looking for, your budget, and agree to work to find you a home!

03
house hunting

Time to go find you a home in Seattle! We will find homes, set up appointment times to view them,  and tour them together. 

04
Make an offer

We found the perfect home! Woohoo! Now we fill out put together an offer and negotiate  the price and terms. 

05
Home inspection & Appraisal

A home inspection is key to checking for any problems with the home before you close. Similarly, the lender will want the home checked to confirm that the home value is in line with the purchase price.  

06
Repairs or Credits

After the inspection and appraisal come in, it's time to ask for repairs or credit towards making repairs. If the appraisal doesn't line up with what is needed, we will need to negotiate to make it work.

07
final walkthrough

Confirm that repairs were made, the home has been cleared out, and double check that everything looks good before close.   

08
Close

It's time to wrap up the closing! Sign all of the documents, square away final costs, and sign the mortgage and deed. Finally, you will be handed the keys to your new home. Congrats!
