The home buying process in 2023 is likely to involve many of the same steps as in previous years, but with the use of more advanced technologies and tools to make the process more streamlined and efficient.

  • Meet with Maria Jeanette
    The first step in the home-buying process is to meet with Maria Jeanette to discuss your needs, budget, and timeline. During this meeting, Maria Jeanette will likely ask you a series of questions to better understand what you're looking for in a home.
  • Get pre-approved for a mortgage
    If you need a mortgage to buy a home, you should get pre-approved for a mortgage before you start your search. This will give you an idea of how much you can afford and help you narrow down your search to homes that fit within your budget.
  • Start your search
    Once you know your budget and have been pre-approved for a mortgage, you can start your search for a home. You can work with a real estate agent, search online, or visit open houses to find homes that meet your needs and budget.
  • Make an offer
    When you find a home that you want to buy, you will need to make an offer to the seller. Your real estate agent can help you with this process, and you may need to negotiate with the seller to reach an agreement on the price and other terms of the sale.
  • Home inspection and appraisal
    Once your offer is accepted, you will need to have the home inspected and appraised to ensure that it is in good condition and worth the purchase price.
  • Closing
    Once the home inspection and appraisal are complete, you will need to close the sale. This involves signing the necessary paperwork, paying closing costs, and transferring ownership of the property.
  • Move in
    After the closing, you can move into your new home! You will need to make sure you have utilities set up, change your address with the post office, and start enjoying your new home.
Maria was awesome. This experience was particularly different and stressful due to COVID 19. Maria went over and beyond her call of duty to help us find the home we wanted. She is knowledgeable and professional. She responds immediately. Her negotiation skills were unmatched. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone and I hope to work with her again in the future.
