Buying a home or investment property?

When buying a home, choosing the right real estate representation is your first step to ensuring your new home meets your requirements. As your agents we possess professional coordination of the home search, strong negotiation skills, and attention to details of the closing. We also have a broad understanding of Tampa Bay’s real estate market and have an established network of resources such as mortgage, home inspection, title, home warranty, rental and property management, relocation, and insurance services. Our job is to make your home buying experience a stress-free one.

An Overview of the Home Buying Process:


Step 1. Initial Consultation at Our Office in Safety Harbor, Florida

During our initial consultation, we  work collaberatively with you to find out exactly what your needs are so that we help you accomplish your goals. Together, we identify the features you are looking for in a home and find the right home for you. If you are not in the Tampa Bay area, we help you view properties by providing photographs via e-mail for your review. We also discuss the steps in the homebuying process and give you an update on the current Tampa Bay real estate market.

Step 2. Obtaining financing

This is an important step to buying a  home in the Tampa Bay area. Unless you’re submitting an all-cash offer, an experienced mortgage consultant will help you calculate your purchasing power.

Step 3. Finding the Right Home

Taking into considering your time frame and homes that meet your needs, we begin to search for your dream home. We will show you as many houses you would like to see then we will meet again at one of our offices and gather Comparable Market Values for sold properties to show you what similar houses have sold for in the past few months. We are highly skilled negotiators who use that to our advantage to negotiate the best price for you. We will save you money and we will tell you exactly what, how, where, and why.

Step 4: Preparing an Offer
Once we find your dream home and you’ve made your decision, we’ll make an offer. We do not pressure you or use hard sales tactics. Buying a home is one of the largest purchases for most home buyers and you need to know that the home you buy is the right home for you.

As we prepare your offer, we will review Comparable Market Values for sold properties to show you what similar houses have sold for in the past few months. We are highly skilled negotiators who use that to our advantage to negotiate the best price for you. We will then submit your offer to the seller’s agent.

Step 5: Reaching an Agreement with the Seller

We walk with you through the negotiating process and negotiate on your behalf. We walk with you every step of the way and once we reach an agreement with the seller, we will work together to ensure that all the terms of the agreement are met.

Step 6: Working for You

To ensure a stress-free home purchase, we will obtain a written property disclosure statement from the seller when one is available.  We will also recommend that you obtain an inspection of the home by a licensed home inspector. We will review a home warranty that covers major home operating systems and appliances then we will do one final walk-through before closing.

Step 7: Completing the Closing Process
We will make sure that the escrow process is a stress-free one. We will explain all the steps to you and answer any questions you may have. We will work with the seller’s broker to make sure they fulfill their responsibilities under the purchase agreement. We will also staying in constant contact with the escrow officer, title officer, lender and others while communicating with you on a regular basis so that there are no surprises.

Step 8: Follow Up

After closing we contact you to make sure that everything is running smoothly and stress-free.
