Simple Steps to Becoming a “Smart” Buyer

Step 1. Select an Exclusive Buyer’s Agent (EBA) to help you with information, knowledge, protect your interests and a road map through the maze.


Step 2. For first time buyers: Look at rent vs. buy to decide if there are enough benefits to YOU to buy. Look at your goals, timetables and desired lifestyle.


Step 3. Have your EBA do an in-depth “needs analysis” for you. By specifically writing down your wants, needs, goals, timetable, etc., all parties will be more focused.


Step 4. Get financially pre-qualified and/or pre-approved. This will help you save time, energy, effort and money in the home buying process.


Step 5. Look at your marketplace objectively. View properties and analyze data with an open, but critical mind. Your EBA should be a big help in keeping you on track.
