A Realtor is always advisable because they are suppose to know and you are suppose to want. Find a good agent, one that you can ask questions to, one you are comfortable with; they will take you through the purchase process, should be able to refer some lenders , if you are financing and they will be there at closing when you get your keys. Use a Realtor, make a friend.

Is this house listed (for sale) with a real estate office or by owner? For any information and for true value of any house the best information can be found through the licensed realtor / broker. A good agent/broker will assist you and direct you with true values and guide you in getting a loan if necessary. Most of all, you need to feel that you can trust and communicate with the realtor you work with. Good luck!

One of the main reasons you would like to consider a Real Estate Agent is that If you decide to buy or sell a home, the offer to purchase contract is there to protect you and ensure that you are able to back out of the deal if certain conditions aren’t met. For example, if you plan to buy a home with a mortgage but you fail to make financing one of the conditions of the sale–and you aren’t approved for the mortgage–you can lose your deposit on the home and could even be sued by the seller for failing to fulfill your end of the contract. An experienced real estate agent deals with the same contracts and conditions on a regular basis, and is familiar with which conditions should be used, when they can safely be removed and how to use the contract to protect you, whether you’re buying or selling your home. Feel free to contact me with any more questions.

I agree with Peri Kiros, a home waits for no one....... ask your friends or family for a referral to an agent that has worked well for them. The process can be easy with the correct guidance and if it is not this home, there will be others. Your Realtor will help you find what is best for you. I wish you all the best in finding your home. It is truly a great experience and achievement.

Your first step is to either be able to provide a Proof of Funds (if you are paying cash) usually a bank or investment statement is sufficient showing the cash amount in your account or you must work with a lender, of which your realtor can refer to you, if you don't have one already. After you take care of eh financial part, than it is up to your realtor to assist you in making the offer and working with you to the final step...owning your own home. Find the right person that works with you and it'll be easy

This first step to purchasing a home is to contact a local realtor. I am very familiar with Vero Beach and Sebastian and would be happy to help. The agent will check the MLS for the homes current status. The first step would be to provide your loan information to your realtor. If you do not have a lender, they will be happy to provide a list of local Mortgage brokers and/or lenders so that you can begin the process. Once you are pre-approved, then you can begin to view homes and decide on which one is right for your knowing what you can actually afford. Your realtor then can set up a tour of homes and you pick which one is right for you. Then you make an offer on that home. If its accepted the process continues, if not, you can either re-negotiate or consider making an offer on the next home.

I see you have received many responses to your question. What are you waiting for? The home (if it is listed) will not wait for you. There is NO CHARGE on your end to work with a Realtor, so find one and be loyal to her/him. If this house is sold, a Realtor will help you find another (maybe even better). Go for it girl!

If the property is for sale, you should "hook up" with a trusted realtor. There are many steps one takes in the purchase of a home. Remember, this is the most important decision you can make and it is the biggest purchase of your life (at least at this time). You do not pay the Realtor that is working for you, the Seller is. So why not work with a professional who has been doing this for years? Laws keep changing and Realtors keep up with those changes through required educational courses. A Realtor can guide you with her knowledge, expertise, experience and offer you suggestions of other services (ie., lenders, home inspectors, tradespeople) that you may need for this purchase and future needs. Interview a few Realtors and see which is the best fit for you! Good luck!

There are MANY steps to purchasing a home. A few steps are: 1. Market Research 2. Neighborhood Comparables 3. Offer 4. Negotiations 5. Disclosures 6. Home inspections 7. Repairs Required 8. Closing Agent Instructions. These are only a few. Best to hire an agent to represent you. The seller pays the Realtor fees and commissions.

You absolutely need an agent. Have you identified the home you want to purchase? Do you have your preapproval letter from your lender if you are getting a loan? How much are you intending to put down based on the purchase price? A consultation with a helpful. qualified agent will be valuable to you. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to answer them.

the first step is to get pre-approved for a home loan if you are not a cash buyer. Your real estate agent will put you in touch with a mortgage Broker who will provide you with a pre-approval letter base on your credit score and income. Once it is done, your Realtor will help with the rest. Good Lock!
