Navigating the Home Buying Process


Navigating the Home Buying Process: A Step-by-Step Guide

Amy Howell here with ONE Florida Group, here to bring some clarity to the home buying process. Buying a home can be confusing, so I’m here to break down the steps:

1. Get Pre-Approved

This helps you know how much house you can afford. No one wants to go home shopping and fall in love, only to find out they are unable to afford it. Don’t know where to get a pre-approval from? That’s where we come in! ONE Florida Group has lending partners we work hand in hand with who are not only extremely knowledgeable but amazing at explaining every single step throughout the process.

2. House Hunting

Our Team will take you out (or do as much as possible virtually if you are purchasing from afar) as many times as needed until together we find the O.N.E. We’ll help you identify your must-haves, deal-breakers, and guide you through the process of finding the perfect home that fits your lifestyle and budget.

3. Make an Offer

We will then guide you in making a competitive offer based on the current market. Our expertise in the local real estate market ensures that you make an informed decision and increase your chances of having your offer accepted.

4. Home Inspection

Whether you are purchasing a resale home or new construction home, a home inspection is an important part of the process. We will be your guide as to what to expect when we inspect! Our team will help you understand the findings and negotiate any necessary repairs or concessions with the seller.

5. Close the Deal

We will be at the closing table with you on the exciting day when you get the keys to your new home in hand. But our job does not stop there. We are a constant resource for you when it comes to all the things you might need in your new home; house cleaner, lawn care services, where to buy cute locally made pieces of decor for your new home. We have you covered!

That is it; of course, this is just a brief overview. Ready to start the discussion? I am just an email, call, or text away!
