Buying Real Estate
When buying a home, you and your needs matter most. Our agent will get to know you, your priorities and your must-haves to ensure we find the right home for you.
Find Your Dream Home
Searching for something specific? We can help you spot your dream home with a floor plan and features that meet your needs. Our team will work with our network of fellow agents and contacts to find leads on potential homes that are getting ready to come on the market—giving you early insight on all possible homes for sale.
Take Advantage of My Network
As part of Long & Foster | Christie’s International Real Estate, our agents work alongside a family of mortgage, insurance and settlement companies that can help you land your perfect home. During your home-buying journey, we can connect you with these trusted partners—the mortgage consultants of Prosperity Home Mortgage, LLC, the risk protection experts at Long & Foster Insurance, our home warranty providers, as well as the settlement pros at Long & Foster Settlement Services. Your agent will coordinate all the moving parts and make sure you are ready for the big day.
Making the Right Offer
Once you have found a place to call home, you can rely on our team’s knowledge of nearby homes that have sold and for how much to develop a custom analysis of the property before you make an offer. You will be able to see what comparable homes have sold for, look at sales trends in the area and get the numbers you need to make a competitive offer.
After the Contract is Signed
There is still a lot of work to complete after we have negotiated terms with the seller and have a signed (or ratified) contract. You can rest easy in knowing that your agent will walk you through the process all the way to settlement. Next up are important items like completing home, termite and radon inspections, coordinating necessary repairs, getting final appraisals, reviewing documents like the homeowners’ association by-laws and making sure we are ready for settlement with a final mortgage commitment from your lender.
We look forward to being your real estate resource for years to come, even after you have purchased your home. As the market changes, our office will keep you updated on increases in your home's value or changes in interest rates. As your life changes, we have the ability to help you make smart investments, not only with strategic improvements to your current home, but also in a vacation home or rental property.
Determining How Much Home You Can Afford
