Anyone that has bought a home before knows just how tedious and overwhelming home-buying can be. Between mortgage pre-qualifications and seemingly endless paperwork the process can often be too much to handle. We eliminate all of the painstaking due diligence tasks and allow you to focus on what’s really important…finding your dream home. If you’re wondering how to make the home-buying process easier, we have your answer! Our CT Certified Properties provide the following to save you time, energy, and frustration!
Virtual Home Tour
Ever driven across town to a view a property, only to find you hated the layout? We get it! Professional property photos don’t always tell the whole story. In order to get a real feel of a home you need to lay eyes on the property. Instead of wasting time driving to and from a listing, wouldn’t it be nice to view it from the comfort of your couch? Our CT Certified properties give you the opportunity to view every property virtually so you know exactly what you are getting into. There are no questions as to the layout, street traffic or backyard space. Save time by viewing the property and layout BEFORE you start the viewing process.
Many Real Estate deals are lost after the contract is signed. We eliminate any guesswork by providing individual reports in each of these areas….
Home Inspection Report – Allows you to know of any property deficiencies and see exactly what needs to be updated or replaced prior to making an offer.
Appraisal – A Low Appraisal can kill a Real Estate Transaction late in the process. Our CT Certified properties often come with Appraisals completed UPFRONT, giving you peace of mind and the feeling that comes with knowing you are making a smart financial decision.
Termite Report – termite damage is often an unexpected expense that can cost tens of thousands if not discovered early enough. The termite report gives a detailed account of any existing, or potential, termite damage so you know the extent of needed treatment BEFORE purchasing your home.
Preliminary Title Report – shows all previous property owners and lienholders. Making sure the title has nothing unexpected can save weeks in the transaction and keep the deal together.
By having these reports in hand prior to making an offer you not only save time, but are assured that there should be no snags further along in the transaction.
3 Year Home Warranty
One of the worst things for any new homeowner is to be hit with unexpected expenses shortly after the move in. Unexpectedly buying a new refrigerator or updating the furnace can be a major blow to your budget. CT Certified Program gives every property comes with a 3 year warranty. This gives you the comfort in knowing that you will not be hit with an unexpected bill when you least expect it.
The first step in the home buying process is to get pre-approved. A lender pre-approval reviews your credit report, income, assets and down payment to let you know exactly what you are approved for and how much of a monthly payment you can afford. You will be given multiple options to find the best program and rates to match your goals. Shopping and weighing multiple options for right loan product can literally save you tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your loan. Regardless of whether you’re already working with a lender or not, getting another opinion could end up saving you a lot of money in the long run.
The amount of paperwork involved with buying a home can be overwhelming. It can be even more overwhelming when escrow delays in getting you paperwork giving clear instruction on what’s needed. Our highly organized and dedicated escrow team has already opened escrow on each of our CT Certified properties and is ready to get the process started with you.
