There are many important things to consider throughout the process, especially if you’re a first-time home buyer. Here’s some information that will keep you on track. A home purchase may be your largest financial transaction to date, so it’s important to make the right decisions and to keep an eye on the details. With the assistance of your Real Estate Agent and Mortgage Loan Officer, it should be an efficient, pleasant and ultimately rewarding experience for you. Home Buyer____________________________ • Keep your Real Estate Agent informed of any questions or concerns as they develop. • Keep the process moving by providing documentation and decisions as soon as reasonably possible. By doing so, many of the details are taken care of early in the process so you can comfortably concentrate on any last- minute details or events that require your attention. • Enjoy purchasing your home, and remain objective throughout — to make the business decisions that are best for you. • Make sure you are pre-approved as early as possible. This will put the power of financing behind you so you can concentrate on selecting your home.

(This single decision can save you thousands of dollars through the years!) • Keeps you informed of your loan status through the entire process. • Keeps your Real Estate Agent informed of your loan progress. (Note: Your personal information is always kept confidential between you and your Mortgage Loan Officer.) • Gets the appropriate loan for you at the best rates and fees. This will save you significant money “up front” and through the years to come. Real Estate Agent _______________________ • Previews available homes to eliminate those that are over-priced or undesirable in some other way. • Presents the homes that suit your needs as you’ve defined them. • Helps you determine the difference between a “good buy” and a property that might be discounted if you decide to sell in the future. • Negotiates the best deal for you. With a pre-qualification letter from us in hand, your Real Estate Agent will be able to demonstrate that you are a qualified and capable borrower. This will strongly influence the Home Seller and may make the difference between the Seller accepting your offer or someone else’s — even if your offer is lower!
