6 Understanding Your Expectations What questions do you have about working with an agent to find your new home? What are your expectations of me?

7 Why Use A Real Estate Agent? Helps you determine how much house you can afford

8 Why Use A Real Estate Agent? Provides detailed information on properties from the Multiple Listing Service and other sources

9 Why Use A Real Estate Agent? Provides you with information about the market so you can develop an offer including the offering price and other terms

10 Why Use A Real Estate Agent? Advises you about the importance of a home inspection and other inspections required by law

11 Why Use A Real Estate Agent? Assists you in understanding different financing options

12 What Is A REALTOR? We adhere to a strict code of ethics and are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly REALTOR business practices are monitored at local board levels

13 Buyer Representation Buyer representation exists to protect you I will run comps so we can determine the fair market value of the home I will help you determine the appropriate price

14 2. Getting Pre-Approved A mortgage preapproval will determine how much money you can borrow for the purchase of your new home

15 Getting A Pre-approval Letter The process involves: Calculating your income vs. debt ratios Running a credit review A pre-approval letter will strengthen your position when making an offer on a home!

17 3. Finding The Home EXPECT BETTER SM

18 Assessing Your Needs - Lifestyle How you live will help determine where you live What is the driving force behind this move? (Job, family, more space, schools, lifestyle, etc.) What type of activities do you enjoy?

19 Assessing Your Needs Your Dream Home Putting together your wish list Who will be living in the house? How much space do you think you will need? Other considerations include: Age of home, lot size, kitchen, baths, layout, style, condition. What are three must have features for your new home?

20 Listing Alerts I will set you up to receive Listing Alerts so you can be the first to know when new homes matching your criteria come on the market!

21 4. Making An Offer EXPECT BETTER SM

22 How Much To Offer Making an offer to purchase involves more than picking a price We will review comparable properties in the neighborhood that have sold recently

23 Negotiable Terms In The Contract Other negotiable items in the contract we will discuss include: Inspections, repairs and home improvements Closing costs, points or home warranty Closing data and possession

24 5. Negotiating The Offer Once the offer is submitted, I will work with you in the negotiations

25 Inspecting The Property Home inspections will serve as an education in the structure and systems of the property you are purchasing The inspector(s) will give you information regarding condition, maintenance, lifespan and more I will help guide you through the process so you can negotiate repairs for the property based on the review of the inspections

26 Executing The Deal EXPECT BETTER SM

27 6. Processing The Loan Now that you have the seller s final approval, we need the lender s final approval

28 Final Financing Approval Final approval means all conditions on the loan have been removed For example: There are no liens on the house The house appraised at a value equal to or greater than the agreed upon sales amount

29 7. Closing & Funding Just before settlement, we will make one last inspection of the property to ensure that the home is in the condition we expect

30 Making Arrangements For Closing Homeowners insurance Home warranty Certified funds for down payment & closing costs Utilities and movers
