The Home Buying Process
Here at Los Angeles Canyon Living, our mission is to meet your real estate goals. We are here to make the process easy whether you're a first-timer or an experienced client. Please reference the Home Buying Process below to help you with your journey!
Step 1: Meet With a Real Estate Professional
Discuss the type of home you're looking for, including price, style, and location.
Step 2: Get Pre-Approved
You will need pay stubs, W2s, and bank statements. Knowing what you can afford is crucial to your home shopping experience.
Step 3: Search For Homes
The fun part! Your agent will schedule showings and help you find the perfect home.
Step 4: Make an Offer
Your agent will prepare the offer based on the price and terms you choose.
Step 5: Negotiation and Contract
It might take a few tries to get it just right, but hang in there. You're on your way!
Step 6: In Escrow
You and the seller have agreed to the price and terms. The home is effectively held for you until closing.
Step 7: Final Details
Perform due diligence. Order the appraisal, conduct an inspection, and review terms with the lender.
Step 8: Closing
This is the transfer of funds and ownership. A title company acts as an independent third party to facilitate the closing.
