Buying a Home

Whether this will be your first home or one of many, the decision to buy a home is a big step. It is possibly the largest financial purchase you will make. And it can be very confusing and often stressful.

When considering buying, you may have many questions. How much can I afford? Do I have to be pre-approved? Do I need a 20% down payment? Can I only go to open houses or can I tour a home in private? How much does it cost to use an agent? Where do I begin?


Your first step is choosing a REALTOR®. A REALTOR® will be your personal guide through the home-buying process. They will listen to your needs, partner with your lender, support you during home inspections, and so much more. Be sure to be open and honest with your REALTOR® so they can provide the service you need!


In any real estate transaction, your REALTOR® will complete up to 200 tasks. But the best is when they hand you the keys to your new home.
