Thinking of Investing in a home?
Purchasing your home is often your largest decision and the most expensive investment you will ever make. Making sure you have a qualified individual helping you is a critical component to ensure your home buying process will be successful. That being said, Blue Arrow Realty has the expertise, experience, and access to technology to help you find the home you are looking for and to guide you through the buying process. As a member of the board of Realtors and the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), we have access to all the homes on the market and can find the one that meets your needs. Not only will you immediately know when a new property hits the market, but we can schedule a showing of the home, help you make the offer, set up the home inspection and continue to help you throughout the transaction. That said, we have written an article which highlights the home buying process in 11 steps and can help shed some light on buying a home.
Get Pre-Approved/Apply for a loan
Blue Arrow Realty works hand-in-hand with many reputable lenders and can help you get in contact with a loan officer to get your mortgage pre-approved before you start looking for a home. A pre-approval is a guarantee that you can qualify for financing to a maximum purchase price and loan amount. This means you can write a stronger offer to purchase and it shows you have completed the initial steps of obtaining financing. In a competitive market, this could mean the difference between the acceptance of your offer or another buyer’s offer. When you apply for a loan, be sure to get a good faith estimate of your closing costs.
Make an Offer
You’ve found the home that you’re interested in; now it’s time to write an offer to purchase. Writing the offer is an exciting, emotional and complicated experience. You’ll be glad you have an experienced Realtor at your side to explain everything line-by-line and help you through each part of the process.
Order Home Inspection
A professional home inspection is essential. We will help you coordinate a home inspection. A professional home inspector sees beyond the “cosmetics” and surveys the entire house, including structure, roof, exterior, and major systems (heating, plumbing, cooling, electrical, ventilation, etc).
Attend Closing Day
Congratulations, today you will become a homeowner!
Remember our full service continues right through the closing day. At closing, you will settle all the financial details. The title to your new home will be conveyed and you will receive the keys to your new home.
Or are you thinking of selling?
With your home being your most valuable financial asset, you deserve the resources of a dedicated and experienced real estate firm. Blue Arrow Realty can offer you the benefits of an innovative website, screen potential buyers for their financial qualifications and leverage years of experience to help sell your home at the best price, in the least amount of time to minimize any headaches that may occur throughout the process.
Determine the value of your Home
Your home’s value is not a fixed rate it can vary according to its condition, location, the time of year, other houses currently for sale in the area, and interest rates. We conduct a free comparative market analysis (CMA) of your home. The CMA will show what similar homes in your area have recently sold for, and how long the homes were on the market. This will enable us to determine the sale value of your home and ensure that it will be listed at the appropriate price.
Marketing Your Home
Working with us you will expose your home to more buyers, increasing the potential of selling your home quickly and at the best price. We begin by entering your home into MLS, the Multiple listing Service, and begin advertising it immediately on bluearrowrealty.com. In addition, we have a highly visible for sale signs and leverage our vast network of real estate agents and lenders to maximize the exposure of your home to qualified buyers.
