A Go with a real estate agent!Realtor® is a member of the National Association of Realtors®. Members abide to a code of conduct and take pride in having a high standard of knowledge for the process of real estate. There are many ways that a Realtor® can help you in the process of buying your Stephenville Home.

The first step in the buying process is to determine your buying capability. Supply your Realtor® with some basic financial information and they will be able to give you referrals for the best-qualified lenders for your circumstances.

Once you know how much you can or would like to invest, you are ready to start looking for a property. Realtors®  have a myriad of resources to help find a suitable property, including those which may not be openly advertised. They will be able to provide objective information to enable you to find the right property for you. When overwhelmed by the wow factor of a property, your Realtor® will help keep your feet on the ground with information on the local community to ensure the property will create the right environment for your home and have good resale value if you decide to resell.

When you find your perfect property, a Realtor® will be able to help guide you through the negotiations process and recommend any inspections or investigations. After negotiations are agreed, an evaluation of the property needs to take place. Your Realtor® can help you find suitable qualified professionals to complete inspections and provide written reports on the condition. Also, you should see an initial report for the title of the property, which shows ownership and any limitations such as access rights.  At this stage the advice of a professional can resolve concerns, which may prevent problems in the future.

When you are confident in your choice of property, the finance process can begin. Closing or settlement can have a different process in various areas but your agent will assist you through the process for a smooth transaction
