Buying your first Columbus home requires planning! If you are daunted by where to start, here are four basic, but important, decisions to help you begin.
1. Choose your real estate agent. We recommend an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent or Exclusive Buyer’s Broker! We make a critical difference in the home search and purchase process, potentially saving you thousands of dollars!
We also protect you from pitfalls that traditional agents may not point out – because they represent the seller! Read our free e-book to learn what other agents aren’t telling you.
2. Choose your mortgage. Seek a mortgage pre-approval from a reputable Columbus area lender. We can personally refer you to local lenders! If you are our Buyer-Client, we can also help you compare your mortgage offers.
3. Choose your preferred home locations in the Columbus area. Your home buying power may go further in some communities than others. If you are set on a certain school district, or wish to be close to family, decide these priorities now.
4. Choose the kind of home you need for your budget and household. What are your priorities in the home itself? There may be tradeoffs in your home search. Decide your must-haves before you begin your search.
As our Buyer-Client, you’ll have the full benefit of our information, experience and guidance. This will give you the confidence to make the best possible decisions.
As your Exclusive Buyer’s Broker, we serve your best interests at all times! Unlike real estate agents and brokerages who represent sellers, as an Exclusive Buyer’s Broker, we only represent you, the buyer, getting you the best price and terms with no conflict of interest at all times.
Understanding this distinction could literally save you thousands of dollars not only on the purchase price and terms, but also on seller concessions and home inspection issues, whether you are a first-time homebuyer or an experienced homeowner!
Contact us with your home buying questions! Remember, we are with you every step of the way…all the way home!
