Our 9-Step Home Buyer Process

We'll Guide You Through Every Step

1.

Getting To Know You

When you're ready, we'll meet with you in person for a preliminary buyer consultation. During this meeting, we’ll discuss exactly what you want and need in a new home and give you an overview of the home buying process. 

2.

Pre-Qualify Before You Buy

This essential step will help you understand what you can afford and give us added leverage in negotiations. If you’d like, we can introduce you to our trusted mortgage partner, who will simplify the lending process and help you secure the loan you need.

3.

Focus On Your Best Options

Now that we know more about you and what you're looking for, we'll send you notifications for listings that match your specific criteria. If you see something you like, just let us know, and we can proceed to the next step.

4.

See Them For Yourself

This is where things get exciting. We'll schedule and take you on tours of the homes you select. We'll also discuss with you the benefits of each option and make sure the homes fit within your specific budget.

5.

Make An Offer

When you find the perfect home, we'll present the seller with a formal written offer. We'll also advise you on how to best handle any of the seller's counteroffers, and negotiate on your behalf until your offer is accepted.

6.

Check It Twice

We want to make sure the purchase you’re about to make is a smart one. We'll guide you though the appraisal and inspection process to verify the price matches to condition of the home and to ensure that everything in the home functions properly.

7.

It's Closing Time

This part of the process involves reviewing all the paperwork and signing your name to all the documents. We'll be there with you at the closing table to answer any questions you might have. Once you complete this step the home is yours.

8.

Get The Keys & Celebrate!

Now that you've signed all the paperwork, it’s time to move in! We'll make sure you get your keys so you can begin planning your move right away. But first, take a moment to celebrate - you deserve it!

9.

Share With Friends & Family

Be sure to share your positive experience with friends and family. When they're ready to buy or sell a home, we'll be there for them, just like we were for you.

What Clients Are Saying About Us

"Brilliant, Gene sold our home in 3 days for more than expected, enthusiastic honest and kept us up to date every step of the way, we live out of state but great communication gave us piece of mind. When no one else can Gene is your Man."

 

"Extremely professional, knowledgeable and very likable agent who sold our condo in less than three weeks. The online posting he created was masterfully photographed (he uses a pro for the photo shoots) well thought out and written beautifully. My wife and I had to move out of state soon after our sale was made and 12 days prior to the scheduled closing. Gene gladly handled all the changes our buyers wanted made, since we were involved in packing, moving and setting up our new place. This was a gigantic load off our plate since we didn't have the time to do it ourselves. Gene volunteered to take care of it for us. There was nothing in our contract stating he had to do this. He did it out of the goodness of his heart and he wanted us to be happy in our new State. If you're searching for a great agent to list your home, look no further. I've dealt with many agents over the years and I've never encountered a better one. I would hire him again in a second!"

 

"I highly recommend choosing Gene Pica for all your real estate needs. I came to Gene with the prospect of selling my house through the short sale process, which is a long and arduous process. He accepted the challenge, without hesitation, and worked so hard on my behalf. He is easily accessible, and is a great advocate for his clients. When scheduling showings and other appointments, Gene is flexible, and always makes sure his clients’ needs are being met. I highly recommend Gene to anyone! When I am in the market to buy a house again, Gene will be the first person I call!"
