Buyer Resources

Buying a home can be an overwhelming process. From financing to negotiating to closing, there are a lot of moving parts that can leave home buyers frustrated.

At Sherwood Baskerville Real Estate, our Realtors can help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice of experience and market knowledge along the way. By working with a professional Realtor who knows the ins and outs of the real estate industry, you’ll not only end up with a great purchase, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience and knowing you were represented to the fullest.

Here are some of the key areas that our team at Sherwood Baskerville Real Estate can assist you with:

Getting pre-approved by a lender
By providing your Realtor with some basic information about your income, savings, and debt, he or she can assist you in getting pre-approved by a reputable lender. The lender will then go over your financing options, what monthly payment amount you can afford, and what you can expect for down payment requirements and closing costs.

Choosing a home
For most buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. Our Realtors can assist you in this process by offering objective information about each property that you view. From local community information like schools and zoning to home-specific details like condition and amenities, our Realtors can help you find what you’re looking for.

Making an offer
Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, our Realtors will research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair selling price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, your Realtor at Sherwood Baskerville Real Estate will then help you structure an offer and negotiate to get the very best deal possible.

Closing, or settlement, can be a complicated process. In our local and surrounding markets, an attorney title company can handle your closing process. Regardless of where you’re buying, your Realtor at Sherwood Baskerville Real Estate can help ensure that everything goes as smooth as possible.
