Choosing the Right Home

Submitting an Offer

Home Inspection

Final Walkthrough & Closing


The first step in the home buying process should be speaking with a lender and completing a loan application. This will allow the lender to issue a pre-approval letter, which must be submitted with your offer to purchase.

Once you complete the loan application and provide the required documentation, your lender will begin the verification process. This will include obtaining copies of your credit reports to verify your credit score, verifying employment and income, as well as checking any and ll assets. There are a number of steps to take to secure financing, so it is important to keep an open communication line between you and the lender.

Choosing the Right Home

We spend a lot of time in our homes, so choosing the right home to purchase is an important decision - it's where you live, raise your family, entertain, and relax. As you begin your home-buying journey, be sure to create alist of features you are looking for in a home such as price, location, type of home, etc.

We all have different real estate needs when it comes to finding our dream home home, which is why it's important to consider some primary factors when you begin your home search: commute, interior & exterior touches. Some people are willing to have longer commute to work if it means they are able to get more home for their money. Maybe it's the ideal kitchen you are looking for because it's the hub of your home, or perhaps a large backyard that allows space for grilling, entertaining, and a place for the kids to play.

Submitting An Offer

There are a number of factors that will affect your decision on what to offer on a property. Market conditions are always a major factor: these are the values of the nearby properties around the home you are considering. These values are typically called “comparables.” We will generate a report for you that will show all of the properties on a list that are active, under contract, or that have sold in the past four to six months in the specified neighborhood. This will help guide you to determine an offering price to the sellers.

You will also want to establish a closing date, or date you will actually become the owner, before writing an offer. If you are obtaining a loan, a lender will generally need about 30 days to complete your loan, order and evaluate the appraisal and furnish the closing documents.

We want you to be prepared but also enjoy this exciting experience. You will have lots of questions throughout your home buying process so never hesitate to ask - We are always more than happy to help!

Home Inspection

After your offer has been accepted, you will be given a time frame to conduct a home inspection. We strongly suggest hiring a licensed home inspection company to assist you in this process.
Some of the items typically investigated during an inspection are roof, structure, foundation, electrical, plumbing, appliances, and radon.

In addition to a home inspection, we always suggest that buyers seek other methods of obtaining information about the property. This will include receiving a property disclosure from the sellers sharing information about the property. Also, talk to potential neighbors and drive around the neighborhood during different times of the day. While driving around, consider things such as proximity to schools, shopping, freeway access, and recreation (Colorado is known for their active lifestyles).

Final Walk-Through & Closing

Just before your closing date, a final-through will be scheduled for you to take one final look around at the home. This is to ensure requested repairs were completed by the seller per your home inspection. In addition to repairs, it's just as important to walk through the home to make sure that the home is in the condition when you previewed it last.

Once you have completed your walk-through the next is closing on your home. Typically this will take place at the title company where you will sit with the escrow officer, your agent, the sellers, and the sellers agent. This process takes about 90 minutes to complete. The majority of documents you sign are the loan documents. Once everything has been signed and notarized, the escrow officer will send over the loan documents to your lender for approval. Once lender approved, then the loan will fund and record and the home is yours!
