Buying real estate can be either fun and exciting or just plain scary, depending on your past experience or maybe this is your first time buying.

We have assisted hundreds of clients in the Southern Utah area  buying for the first time or the tenth time.  We can help make the entire experience, from offer to closing, simple, easy and as stress free as possible.


You can do things to prepare to buy St. George or Hurricane real estate even before you look at your first home.  These include talking with a lender about a pre-approval letter so you how much home you can afford, and taking the letter when you go out to make an offer.  (my Mercer Island real estate connections has more info for buyers here)

Make notes on what you are really looking for in a home.  If you find a home you really like, you don't have to use the entire budget the lender gives you.  Many buyers are stuck with a financial crisis because some lenders were practicing preditory lending practices.  Be a smart consumer, know your limit and what you can comfortably afford.

Once you know what you want, and what price you can afford, start your search. Either online, which most people do, or give us a call and we can start a search with, your criteria, in the area you want.

The buyer's agent is involved when you buy a home. He will help you facilitate the entire transaction.  They are your go-to person for anything you may need during the transaction.  (learn more about a buyer's agent from Sedona real estate affiliates)

Your escrow company makes sure all the funds are correct and distributed to the other parties involved.  They communate with you, the agents, the lenders and the sellers.  (For more info on escrow, visit our Sedona Arizona real estate link)

Your lender will get you a good rate on your loan, lock it in and complete the paperwork for the underwriters to approve your loan.  (My Sandpoint real estate contact has excellent articles on how to obtain a mortgage.)

The inspector will check over the home and verify it's stability and make you aware of current or future repairs.  (Visit my Spokane real estate affiliate for more tips on inspections)

The seller's and their agent are completing any repairs or requests in the inspection contingency and packing to move.

You will need to aquire home owner's insurance if this is the first time you have purchased a home.  The escrow company will need this information.  (for more information on who does what job, visit our Lake Chelan real estate connection in Washington)
