First Step for Northeast Ohio Home Buyers
A Frequently Asked Question I get is - What is the First Step in Buying a Home?
This First Step for Northeast Ohio Home Buyers orients the buyer to the buying process and helps me to get to know the buyer better. We go over the home buying steps from beginning to end, answer questions, and give referrals for related services if needed, such as mortgage officers or inspectors.
In order for me to do a better job of helping the Northeast Ohio Buyer find the perfect home, I go over the below list of questions during the Northeast Ohio Home Buyer Consultation. The review also helps the buyer to see that there is a lot more to buying a house than price and size. The Questionnaire I use during the First Step for Northeast Ohio Home Buyers Consultation is designed for me to really dig deep with a buyer and develop a better professional relationship.
