With the right real estate professional on your team, buying a home in North Texas can be a smooth and seamless process.

Buying a Home in North Texas

Buying a home will be one of the largest purchases of your life and will require thorough research and analysis to find the perfect property. Deciding on the best location, numbers of bedrooms and bathrooms, or whether to look for a home with a pool are some of the easier tasks. However, there are many other components to consider in your home search. From your first search, to getting your keys at closing, C4 Home and Land will be leading your through the process.

As experts in the area, we can help guide you on the different neighborhoods, schools, and other amenities that mesh with your desired lifestyle.

10 Steps to Buying a Home

Step 1
Choose an Agent

A buyer’s agent will help you find the right houses, negotiate a great real estate deal, and explain all of the nuances of home buying along the way.

Step 2
Find a Lender

The sooner you visit a lender, the quicker you’ll know where you stand on getting a mortgage, and any steps you need to take to improve your financial situation.

Step 3
Clean Up Your Credit

It’s essential to know your credit score, and take the necessary steps to pay down those overextended credit cards and high-interest debts to maximize your credit score and get the best interest rate.

Step 4
Apply for a Mortgage Pre-Approval

Having a pre-approval not only shows you how much house you can afford, but it also gives you better negotiating power when making an offer.

Step 5
Create a Wish List

The number of homes to look at can become overwhelming, so it’s best to separate your must-haves from those features you’d like, but don’t really need. Are you wanting a new home or more of a fixer-upper?

Step 6
Search Listings

This is the fun part. Your buyer’s agent will help set up a search for you that meets your criteria. Once you’ve found the houses you like, your agent will setup showings to get you a closer look.

Step 7
Make an Offer

Found your perfect dream home? Now is the time to submit an offer. Your agent will help you with this and provide guidance on how to make your offer more appealing to the seller.

Step 8
Get Final Mortgage Approval

Now that you’ve found a home and your offer was accepted, it’s time to work with your lender for final mortgage approval. This is where you will see the specifics of your loan and needed closing costs.

Step 9
Due Diligence

It is important to get the home inspected during the option period. Inspections are highly recommended to help find any underlying issues that may affect the value of your home and how much work it needs.

Step 10
Closing

Closing is the day you officially get the keys to your new home—and pay all the parties involved. This will include your down payment, plus closing costs, and any extra fees you pay to process your loan.
