our home Buyer Education is impactful
Evaluate Your Options
Knowing and understanding your financial limits and buying power is key. Evaluating the qualifications of different loans will help to set budgets and plans which meet those goals (ie. paying down debt, saving for a down payment, getting gift funds).
Identify Your Approach
Once you meet the goals you set to qualify for a loan, then you want to identify a lender that offers excellent terms and the loan products you need (i.e. FHA, Conventional, VA, Rehab). It’s also important to know the lenders reputation in processing home loans.
Make Your Offer
You’ve gotten your pre-qualifications, you’re working with a kick-ass agent, and actively looking for that perfect house – now is the time to root into knowing the value of things to you versus the value of things to others – this is key to negotiations that succeed.
Win Without Compromise
Because you listened to all the amazing expert advice in our coaching session, you’ve won a dream home at a price that doesn’t make you want to curl into the fetal position, and in a condition that will bring you strong equity and endless growth opportunity.
Why Home Buyer Education?
The most successful people in any endeavor have the benefit of education; they understand the full spectrum of opportunities and resources and know how to leverage them to win. Buying a home (whether it’s your first or 5th time) can be daunting and overwhelming, especially if financial education wasn’t intrinsic to your upbringing – but it’s not as complicated as you may think. We work to normalize the “not knowing everything” part of home buying. It’s completely normal to have a million and one questions about buying a home, but the reality is Google can only go so far – your path forward is specific to you. Your financial abilities and limits are unique, your tolerance for risk are unique, your needs and wants in a home and a community are unique – so why would generic and one-size fit’s all advice work for you?
That’s where we come in!
We want to answer all your questions (yes, even those seemingly “dumb ones”) to empower you to find the right place, at the right time and be able to call it HOME.
During our coaching session we will address the overall process of financing a home, how to best prepare for the largest purchase of your life, and how to position yourself for success when it’s time to make an offer and win!
