The Home Buying Process

Opportunity Abounds

Buyer’s Market – Buyers have more strength in the offer and negotiation for the purchase of a home in a Buyer’s Market. Due to a higher supply of available homes and a lower number of buyers looking to purchase, Sellers are more willing to make concessions to sell their home. A typical Buyer’s Market is when there are 6+ months of housing supply.


Seller’s Market – A Seller has more strength in the offer and negotiation for the sale of their home in a Seller’s Market. A low supply of homes and a high number of buyers creates scarcity and urgency in buyers, and a seller can then negotiate more favorable terms. A typical Seller’s Market is when there are less than 4 months of supply.

Price Point Caveat – The price point of a home, or just its location, can cause a shift from a Buyer’s to a Seller’s Market and vice versa. For example, you may have a Seller’s Market for homes under $350,000 but a Buyer’s Market for homes over $500,000 in the same city.

Buying Your Home


If finding a home is the fun part, then writing the offer is when things start to get really exciting! Though there are more challenges in this stage of the process, you are one step closer to owning your home. Anyone can find a home they love, but as your agent, I can help you write a competitive offer and get through the sometimes choppy waters from the time you go under contract to when you get
the keys.

What's the Right Price?

The right price fairly reflects the market value of the home you want to buy. To find this price, I will pull together a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA), which is a set of Multiple Listing Service (MLS) records about recently sold homes that resemble the one you want in size, condition, location and amenities.

Home Warranty & Inspections

Home Warranty

The last thing you need to worry about when buying a new home is the unexpected cost of repairing or replacing appliances or mechanical systems. When you buy a home with an HWA 13-month home warranty, your worries disappear. We cover your new home’s systems and appliances and provide expert service technicians to solve any problems. The typical cost for a 12-month home warranty is $500-$700. HWA gives you an extra month for the same price


This is going to be one of the largest purchases you will ever make! Therefore, we always recommend that you get a basic inspection from a licensed home inspector.


There are many additional inspections that might be needed: pest, swimming pool, sewer, radon and many more. Talk to your LUXRE eXpert for a local inspector referral


If you are financing your home, appraisals are an important step. A mortgage is a collateralized loan, which means if the borrower doesn’t pay then the bank will take back the house. This is why mortgage rates are less than others – it’s not just a personal promise to pay back the loan, the bank will still get something even if the homeowner defaults. To make sure the home value is in line with what you are paying for it, the bank orders a third party to check. These are called appraisals. In a market where prices are appreciating quickly, appraisals can be a challenge.

They Are Different

The appraisal and inspection are different,
but can sometimes be confusing.


An Appraisal is not an inspection. Many buyers mistakenly assume an appraiser is hired to protect their interests. Actually, an appraiser is hired by the lender to protect the bank.


A home inspector is hired by the buyer to produce a detailed report about the condition of the home to protect you from buying a problem you didn’t know about.
