The MCRE Home Buying Process
Everyone's home buying experience is unique. For some buyers, it's love at first sight. For others, it may take 10 or more showings to find the right property. Regardless of your unique story, we strive to provide the highest level of client care. Our goal is to make the Huntsville, AL home buying process as efficient and enjoyable as possible, while adding value in each step of the process.
Step 1: Buyer Consultation
This is a no pressure, easy, casual meeting with one of our buyer specialists to allow you to ask questions about your unique needs. Also, it's your opportunity to interview us and decide if we are the right fit to work with your family! This session is completely free of charge and there is no obligation.
Step 2: Pre-Approval
Your mortgage pre-approval is an important second step. Not only does this give you insight into different loan programs and educate you on current interest rates, but it also empowers you to look at the right homes. Knowing your buying power is key, and should happen early in the process.
Step 3: Home Search
This is the fun part! Your buyer specialist will help you find homes that meet your criteria, you will look at the homes in person, and narrow down a list ofyour favorites. Your buyer specialist works for YOU and represents YOUR best interests. They can help you with any home listed by any company, as well as new construction options!
Step 4: Offer & Negotiations
When you've found the right home, your buyer specialist will advise you on making an offer, recommend contract provisions to protect you, and negotiate on your behalf.
Step 5: Home Inspection
This step is important! Alabama is a Caveat Emptor, or “Buyer Beware” state. That is different for many buyers that have bought properties in different states. We can guide you through this process and ensure that you meet all deadlines on your inspections and repair requests. Your agent will attend your inspection, and then you will be in touch with our closing coordinator to negotiate repairs.
Step 6: Closing
Closing typically takes around an hour and is an easy process. Plus, closing day is a happy day! This is when you receive your keys and officially become a homeowner!
Meet our Closing Coordinator, Denise Morris! She's closed over 3,000 homes.
Step 7: Pay it Forward!
For every 100 homes we sell, we build one for a needy family in Nicaragua! We absolutely couldn't do this without your support. Know that your purchase goes toward the greater good.
Step 8: Review
Let us know how we did! We appreciate our clients making us the most reviewed real estate team on Zillow.com in Alabama!
Step 9: Raving Fan!
Our past clients get to enjoy the benefits of our Raving Fans Club! Perks include annual movie nights, Thanksgiving pie giveaways, complimentary notary and fax services, a free sweet treat on your birthday, and more!
