7 Step Buying Process

Of course it’s important to know where you want to live, but what’s more important (and often overlooked) is HOW you want to live. Click Properties’ consultants can help you through this brainstorming process so you can better and more easily identify your true priorities for wanting to buy a home.

Once you wrap your head around the money, all of your decisions become MUCH easier. Speaking with a mortgage professional about the current loan market, your finances and goals is the first step to making it all seem possible. Click Properties can help you find a mortgage professional who will do just that.

3. Start your home search

With a comfy purchase price range in your head and a pre qualification letter in hand, it’s time to start your search! A Click Properties agent can help you distill down to the best options for you so your time “in the field” is spent most productively. And if you just love to shop for homes naked in the privacy of your own home (or office – we don’t judge), Click Properties’ search tool is perfect for you!

You love it! You want it! Now what?

Click Properties agents are expert negotiators who will advise you on how to make a strong but fair offer based on the facts. Because while exercise is good for you, exercises in arbitrary decision-making are not.

Your offer has been accepted. Now what? “Buyer beware” is no truer in anything than it is when buying real estate. You gotta KNOW the ins-and-outs of what you’re getting into, right? Click Properties will help you find an experienced property inspector to “look under the hood” of your new home. We will also help you find a seasoned real estate attorney who will walk you through all the niggling details of the legal stuff but, most importantly, explain your new mortgage contract to you.
