Buying a Home? Frequently asked questions!

Congrats, you are beginning down the path of home ownership. There are many steps to get started. At the NLA Real Estate Group we sit down with you for a consultation and go over the entire home buying process from start to finish. Below are some of the questions we get- so we thought we would share a few with you!


How will you tell me about the newest homes available?


The Multiple Listing Service Website provides up-to-date information for every home on the market. I constantly check the New on Market list so I can be on the lookout for my clients. I will get you this information right away, the way that is most convenient for you; by phone and/or email.



Will you inform me of homes from all real estate companies or only Keller Williams Realty?


I will keep you informed of all homes. I want to help you find your dream home, which means I need to stay on top of every home that's available on the market.



Can you help me find new construction homes?


Yes, I can work with most builders and get you the information you need to make a decision. On your first visit with the builder, I will accompany you. By using my services with a new construction home purchase, you will receive the services I offer, as well as those provided by the builder, at no additional cost.



How does for sale by owner (FSBO) work?


Homeowners trying to sell their home without agent representation are usually doing so in the hopes of saving the commission. If you see a FSBO and want the advantages of my services, let me contact the owner for you and make an appointment. Most times the homeowner will work with an agent, even though their home is not listed, since the agent is introducing a potential buyer to their property.



Can we go back through our property again once an offer is made, but before possession?


Usually, we can notify the seller and schedule a convenient time to visit the property again. Immediately before the closing, we will schedule a final walk-through and inspection of your new home.



Once my offer is accepted, what should I do?


Celebrate and focus on moving into your new home! You will want to


schedule your move, pack items and notify businesses of your address


change. I will provide you with a moving checklist to help you


remember all the details. Your lender will give you a good faith estimate and escrow will provide a


HUD statement, which will indicate the amount you will need to bring.



Of course there are many questions that come up during the home buying process. Making sure you hire the RIGHT Realtor is more important now then ever.
