The Process of Home Buying
How Much Can You Spend?
You need to know how much you can spend on a home, and how you find that out depends on your financial circumstances, but any Mortgage Broker will be happy to give you a ballpark estimate of what you can borrow.
Then, set your perameters:
Do you want land, a yard, or no maintenance? How about proximity to the ski slopes, or is cross-country skiing and backcountry access more important? Do you need a garage? Or is a studio apartment enough?
We Can Help
Let's Look at Property.
Make an offer: We'll help you through this process and ensure that you get the best deal possible.
Get all necessary inspections done: A home inspector will check for signs of harmful materials like asbestos, lead paint and mold. They'll also check for evidence of pests, faulty wiring and leaks. This is a crucial part of the home purchase. Not getting an inspection done means that you could be stuck in a home with a bad case of black mold and no recourse other than to pay for its removal. Inspections will cost a few hundred dollars, but again, this is more than worth it in the end. There are several inspectors in the area that we'd be happy to recommend.
Do a final walkthrough before closing the deal. We'd be happy to do this with you to make sure that everything agreed upon is completed prior to the final signing.
