THE BUYING PROCESS
Let The Clements Group help you every step of the way. When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
While at your side each step of the way, we will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. We will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
Through our guidance you will become educated about the home buying process and with a network of connections our team will help you every step of the way. We are always familiar with the current homes on the market, San Diego sub-divisions, school systems and of course know neighborhood values well, so we can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.
YOUR FIRST STEP
Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? A vacation home? Next, list what kind of home you would like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the “must haves” from the “want to haves.” Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work? Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.
YOUR NEXT STEP: LOAN PRE-QUALIFICATION
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is financing. Cash purchase or do you need to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes. The Clements Group has strong relationships with the best lenders in San Diego. Call today and we will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients and getting the deals done.
