Look for the best rates, but be sure to ask lenders about additional costs and fees beyond principal and interest. We offer exclusive partnerships with Tidewater Mortgage, Atlantic Bay Mortgage and OVM Financial.
Know how much home you can afford and how much you want to spend. Be prepared with bank statements, tax returns, pay stubs and W-2s from the last two years.
Having a professional real estate agency working for you is a no-brainer! Having a highly-rated agency is even better. Babb Real Estate consistently receives the highest online reviews and most of our business comes from referrals and repeat clients.
Make a list of what’s important to you and divide it into “must-haves” and “nice-to-haves.” Understanding essential versus nonessential can help narrow your search and prioritize properties.
Viewing properties online allows you to see if your budget and expectations align. Use your list of needs and wants to narrow your search, and share with your real estate agent.
Commit to visiting as many properties as you can. You’ll learn more about the market and process each time.
Your real estate agent will guide you on the offer, based on asking price, market analysis, closing date, concessions and more. Negotiations are common, so having an agent with sophisticated negotiation skills is a must. At Babb Real Estate, we consistently earn big wins for our clients.
When your offer is accepted, it’s time to go back to your lender to find the loan that’s right for you.
Even with new construction, a home inspection is a good idea. A certified housing inspector will let you know if there are any issues the house currently has or may have in the future. These findings may influence negotiations, and in some cases, your decision to purchase the house.
Hire third party appraisers to determine the property’s value. This will let all parties know you are paying a fair price for the home.
Closing costs are typically 2-5% of the home’s purchase price and include appraisal fees, homeowner’s insurance, title insurance, attorney fees, and property taxes. Depending on your agent’s negotiation skills, you will pay a portion or all of these during your closing and walk away as a homeowner.
