Home Buying Process

My main goal is to engineer a completely smooth transaction for you, while helping you meet all deadlines.

The home buying process in Orange County, California generally involves the following steps:

  1. Determine your budget: The first step in the home buying process is to determine how much you can afford to spend on a home. This will depend on your income, debt, and savings, as well as the current housing market in Orange County. It's a good idea to get pre-approved for a mortgage before you start looking at homes, as this will give you a better idea of how much you can borrow and what your monthly payments will be.

  2. Find a real estate agent: It can be helpful to work with a real estate agent who is familiar with the Orange County housing market. A real estate agent can help you find homes that meet your criteria, negotiate with sellers, and handle the paperwork and legal aspects of the home buying process.

  3. Search for homes: Once you know how much you can afford to spend on a home, you can start looking for properties that meet your budget and other criteria, such as location, size, and style. You can search for homes online, through a real estate agent, or by visiting open houses in person.

  4. Make an offer: When you find a home you want to buy, you will need to make an offer to the seller. Your offer should include the price you are willing to pay, any contingencies (such as a home inspection), and any other terms of the sale. Your real estate agent can help you craft a competitive offer that will give you the best chance of getting the home you want.

  5. Get a home inspection: Before you finalize the purchase of a home, it's important to have a professional home inspection to identify any potential issues or problems with the property. This can help you negotiate with the seller to have any necessary repairs made before closing the sale.

  6. Finalize the sale: Once you have a signed purchase agreement and have completed a home inspection, you can move on to the final steps of the home buying process. This includes getting a mortgage, paying closing costs, and transferring ownership of the property to you. Your real estate agent and lender can help you navigate these steps and ensure everything is done properly.

  7. Close the sale: The final step in the home buying process is the closing, where you will sign the mortgage documents and pay any remaining closing costs. Once the closing is complete, you will become the official owner of the property.

Those are just some of the highlights. I am responsible for helping you meet all deadlines, as well as keeping your transaction on point and avoiding any possibility of a default in the terms of your contract. I’m here to do all of this for you to ensure that all your bases are covered and your escrow closing goes smoothly.
