Home Buyer's Guide

Finding Your New Home. Mission Accepted

It goes without saying that the purchase of a home – whether it is your first or your tenth – is a big deal. Your Slate Properties’ Buyer’s Agent understands how important this process is and will be an invaluable resource. From the initial consultation meeting through a successful settlement, your Slate Buyer’s Agent is here to guide you through the process – each step of the way. Although each buyer has different circumstances, there are usually 10 Key Steps that happen during a typical new home purchase:

1. New Buyer Orientation Meeting

2. Financing Discussion and Pre-Approval Explanation

3. Develop Buyer Profile – “Wants” vs. “Must Haves”

4. Automated Search

5. Property Tours

6. Offer Preparation, Presentation, Negotiation

7. Contract Ratification

8. Home Inspection, Contingencies, and Loan Approval

9. Pre-Settlement Walk-Through

10. Settlement and Move-in
