Buyer Transaction Roadmap

1 - Get Pre-Approved

Determine how much you want to spend, by talking to a trusted mortgage lender. 

2 - Set Up a Search Online

I will customize a search for you, pulling the most up-to-date information available on the internet from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), the central database for all real estate information.

3 - Private Showings

Once you find interesting properties, I will schedule a day and time to go for a private tour.

4 - Submit an Offer

Once you find a property you love, we will write up an offer. I will pull comparable properties to determine an offer price. This can be done over the phone, in person, or by email with DocuSign.

5 - Home Inspection

Offers are typically contingent on a home inspection of the property by a licensed professional to check for signs of structural damage or things that may need fixing.

6 - Attorney Review

Attorneys for each party review the contract and make suggestions for changes to protect their clients.

7 - Appraisal

Lender will arrange for an appraiser to provide an independent opinion of the value of the property.

8 - Underwriting & Paperwork

Lender works with a title company to handle all of the paperwork and make sure that the seller is the rightful owner of the house you are buying.

9 - Secure Property Insurance

Homeowners or condo insurance is necessary and it compensates you for losses to your home and your possessions inside it.

10 - Clear to Close

Lender has cleared all the conditions and is now ready to go to closing. 

11 - Final Walk Thru

Typically the day before or morning of closing, we do a final walk through that lasts 15 minutes to make sure everything is in the condition you first saw it in and previously requested repairs were made.

12 - Closing

Your attorney and I will be at the closing to walk you through each and every document and answer any questions you may have. Ownership will be transferred to you and you’ll get keys to your new home!


The Private Listing Network

Consider an Exclusive Private Listing

Preserve Your Privacy

With the Private Listing Network, your home will not appear on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) or any of the many real estate websites accessible to the general consumer and media. A "private listing" notifies only licensed real estate brokers of your intent to sell, protecting your privacy until you are ready to go public.

Gain Valuable Insight

Another key benefit of Private Listing is the opportunity to get feedback from brokers with ready buyers. This information can then be used to make marketing adjustments or even slight property enhancements to strengthen the listing before going out to the broader MLS market. And all of this can be done without anyone knowing that your home has already been on the market


Get To Know Us

Test Pricing Strategy

A Private Listing also allows us to test the market and gauge response. Then, if appropriate, we can make adjustments and move to the MLS without potential buyers knowing about any price changes. Entering the market at an optimal price sets the stage for getting the best offers in the fewest days. In fact, homes at the right price can often attract multiple bids, thus driving the price higher.

Maintain Security

By marketing your home privately through an exclusive network of high-end real estate professionals, the security of you and your home can be better safeguarded. The number of visitors is minimized and the pool can be limited to qualified and interested buyers. Open houses and multiple showings can also be eliminated.

Searching Off Market

See New Homes Before They're Listed

Dream Town has partnered with Zenlist to provide our clients with the best home search experience. With this new platform, homebuyers can access ALL off-market inventory, which is usually only available to Realtors on the MLS or Private Listing Network. This is a huge advantage, especially when housing inventory is low.

With Zenlist You’ll Be Able to:

» Expand your home search and view properties before they hit the market utilizing the Private Listing Network
» Have access to a wider range of home inventory than you’d typically find through consumer search portals.
» Set up advanced home search parameters to make finding your dream home easier.
