South Florida Home Buyers

We love South Florida.  It is where we live, eat, play and do business.  We enjoy the cafes and restaurants in the early evenings and watch little league games on the weekends.  The residents are our friends and its backyards are where we relax over a great BBQ, watching the sun set over the Everglades.  The internet doesn’t live here, we do.  This is our life and we can’t wait to share it with you.

The internet will show you things like square foot size or bedrooms and baths, but It can’t help you find that undefinable essence that would equal home. Is it the quality of the light or finely turned detail in the living room? Is it the way the floor plan flows, seamlessly, into the backyard, or is it the odd uncategorized space just perfect to indulge in your hobby?  Our Skilled Real Estate Buyer Specialists take the time to find out what home means to you.

Search the MLS Now

We make the home buying process easy!  Some users want to get started on their own, continually searching through real estate listings for the right properties; others utilize one of our agents to help you find the perfect home.  We’ll also reach out to other agents we’ve developed relationships with to find properties that haven’t hit the market yet.  In short, we leave no stone un-turned in order to get the job done.

The Home Buying Process

Define Your Goals

Before you start looking, consider why you want to buy a home. Are you tired of renting? Do you want to buy an investment property? Figuring out why you want to purchase a home will help you make important decisions down the road. Considering what you want and need out of your home will help you narrow down your home search as well. What neighborhood do you want to live in? How many bedrooms do you need? Knowing your preferences can help with filtering out homes that don’t fit your criteria.

Pick a SKILLED Agent

Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you may ever make. Whether you’re buying your first home, relocating or just moving down the street — you want a trusted professional by your side. Working with a qualified SKILLED agent can make this process easier, helping guide you through the home search, purchase agreements, inspections, closing matters and more. Having an agent who has your best interests at heart can ease some of your stress and can help make it go as smoothly as possible.

How Much House Can You Afford?

Knowing your budget up front helps you focus your search and can save you both time and stress. Talking to a mortgage professional can help you to determine your buying power. They can help you to find out how much you can afford, how much you should put towards a down payment, and can walk you through loan options and other costs or fees associated with purchasing a home. Consider asking your agent for a referral; they understand your needs and can help find a professional for your situation.

Make an Offer

Once you find a home you’re interested in, your agent can help negotiate a fair offer based on comparable homes in the area. If your offer is accepted, you’ll make a down payment and be officially under contract. During the due-diligence period between signing the purchase agreement and closing on your home, your agent can help you understand the conditions, provisions, and obligations of your contract. They can also help guide you through the appraisal and inspection processes.

Close on Your Home

This is the final step of your home buying journey. Closing is the official transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer. At closing, you will sign your mortgage paperwork to solidify your purchase. From there, you officially become a homeowner and will be handed the keys to your new home so you can begin making memories.

Home Inspection: You have your home inspection report. Now what?

Most would-be buyers and sellers believe the real estate “deal” is negotiated at the signing of the contract.  In many cases, the deal-making and negotiations only start at the contract signing. Even in more competitive real estate markets, negotiations still happen once in escrow.  Issues typically arise after the home inspection, and those issues tend to result in another round of negotiations ...
