Finding Your Dream Home

Step 1: Decide what you need and what you can afford

Step 3: Build your team

Choose a REALTOR® that you are comfortable with
Home inspector
Lawyer

Banker

Step 4: You are now in the home stretch once you have found your home and it is now time to finalize your mortgage and the deal:

Current bank account information
Evidence of your down payment
A list of your current assets
A list of your liabilities
Address or contact information for your lawyer
A copy of the purchase and sale agreement and any amendments, spec sheet as well
