[RE/MAX Sold] + [Harper Solde] = Delaware Valley synergy -- Buying A Home - Let Us Help You - We Get Results!

Buying a home can be a positive and rewarding event -- provided you use the right real estate professional and you understand the process of buying a home.

There are several steps or phases that we have identified in the real estate home buying transaction process.  All real estate home purchases involve these steps, often varying in the details, but you can not have a successful home purchase without properly executing these steps. 

ARTICLE OBJECTIVE: To give you a basic understanding of the Home Buying Process and to minimize your risks and maximize your results by identifying and using the right real estate professional to guide and assist you in the process.

1. Analyze and determine your needs -- both short term and long term.

      Note: The above step requires action by the buyer to make a decision to begin searching for a house to buy.


2. Identify an agent with whom you are comfortable and has the proper credentials and experience for your situation.

Notes: Step #2 requires action by the buyer to select a Realtor that is a best fit for buyer's situation and needs.

Consumer Notice: One of the first items of business every Realtor is required to do by state regulation is presenting an information notice prepared by the state Real Estate Board for you to review and sign (this is not a contract, just a proof for agent that it was shown to you) so that you understand the different forms of real estate agency.

In New Jersey, it's called the Consumer Information Statement (C.I.S.)
In Pennsylvania, it's called the "Consumer Notice"

The following steps are carried out by the buyer with the aid / guidance / support of the Realtor or by the Realtor on behalf of the buyer.  The timings for each step will vary, many times overlapping, but no step can be skipped.

3. Establish Price Range and Location of Homes To Be Searched.
