Follow This Schedule to Buy a Home by Summer!

What better way to make fun summer memories than by moving into a beautiful new home with your family?

If you’re wanting to spend the summer enjoying a home you love with your family, just follow this schedule! 

February: Connect with your agent. Now is the time to get your agent lined up and get a home search plan put together. If you don’t have an agent in mind, start getting referrals and talk with at least 3 agents. This will help you get a feel for the different styles out there and find the agent that works best for you! 

March: Focus on finances. Once you connect your agent, you’ll start prepping your finances and shop around for mortgages. In this month, make your budget and get all your financial documents pulled together so you can easily submit pre-approval paperwork to lenders. Once you’re pre-approved, you’ll be able to start the next step. 

April: Start the search! With your agent secured and pre-approval in hand, you’ll be starting house hunting in April. Your agent will help you identify the best neighborhoods, review listings, and attend showings and open houses. The best thing to do in this month is to keep an open mind–you might see homes that you never would have expected to love but they might just be perfect for you! 

May: Negotiate offer terms. By the end of May, you’ll be in the negotiation process with the sellers. Your agent will help you make an irresistible offer that sellers can’t ignore. Then you’ll negotiate on the offer terms with the sellers to make sure that you get the best deal possible. 

June: Close and get your keys! The closing process typically takes a few weeks. You can spend this time packing up your current home and getting ready for a fantastic summer in your brand new home! 

In just 5 short months, you can be in a new home, ready to make a summer’s worth of happy memories with your family and loved ones.
