The path to homeownership is lined with these key steps.

  1. Build your team by finding trusted experts to guide you along the way.
  2. Learn your credit score and work to improve it by cutting down debt and spending.
  3. Boost your savings. Speak with a professional about down payment options, set a goal, and budget accordingly.
  4. Know your numbers; discover what you can afford based on mortgage interest rates, income, and more. Get pre-approved by a trusted advisor.
  5. Go house hunting! Explore neighborhoods, home types, and determine your must-haves with your agent.
  6. Make an offer; have your agent draft your offer and negotiate with the seller
  7. Get an inspection and appraisal. Rely on the pros as they determine the value and condition of the home, and renegotiate as needed
  8. Make it official; on closing day sign final documentation and get the keys to your home.
  9. Move into your new home! Send in the movers because it’s time to make your dream a reality on move-in day.

Your journey can begin now. Connect with Dennis Hartley today so that you’ll have expert guidance all along the way.
