Purchasing a home is a life-changing event. Whether you’re looking to buy your first house, a forever home, or an investment property, purchasing any piece of real estate is an important decision that is best done with a knowledgeable guide. That’s why real estate agents are such an important part of this process - they understand your needs and wants and can carve a straightforward path for you to get to your desired property.

The home buying process can be daunting, and sometimes even intimidating. Latoya can walk first-time and experienced buyers through this process and assist with the following steps: 

Initial Connection with an Agent

Arguably one of the most important steps of the home buying process, identifying a realtor who understands you and your needs is key. Latoya knows that agents are your advocates and guides throughout the home buying process. At the start of the process, she will meet with you so she can best understand your vision so that you can be connected with the home and lifestyle of your dreams!

Seek Out Pre-Qualification

Before you even begin touring homes, it’s important to get pre-qualified in order to better understand what properties you should realistically be looking at. Many luxury homes in particular require some sort of proof of funds prior to viewings. A pre-qualification letter will demonstrate that you are a legitimate buyer that has a strong understanding of what properties will fit you and your life. Latoya can help you navigate this process to help give you a stronger understanding of what exactly will fit your budget.

Search for and Identify Your Dream Home

This is the most fun part of the process. Based on your preferences, Latoya can arrange viewings for a wide array of homes within your desired area that check all of the boxes on your “want” list! During these tours, she will provide you with details about the home, tell you about local amenities, and give you the rundown of the overall neighborhood feel. Touring stunning homes and admiring their breathtaking details is always enjoyable, but it’s even more exciting when you finally find the house that is perfect for you and your needs!

Offer and Acceptance

Once you’ve found the ideal property, Latoya will guide you through the offer and acceptance phase. As a seasoned negotiator, Latoya will always provide client-focused negotiations in order for you to secure a perfect home for the perfect price. She will work tirelessly on your behalf to present a competitive offer, and ultimately she will assist with opening escrow once a mutual agreement is reached. 

Appraisal and Inspection

Once escrow is opened, the home will undergo a comprehensive appraisal and inspection process. This will help ensure that the home is in good condition and guarantees that the home’s price matches up with the property value. Once these processes are completed, it’s time to move into your brand new home!

Celebrating a New Chapter!

Finally comes the best step of buying a house - closing on your home! Near the end of the process, Latoya will assist you with the final paperwork and conduct one last walkthrough to ensure that everything is up to par. Once everything is finalized, the home is yours, and you can step into your future with your incredible new property!
