Buyers

Groome & Co. would love to have your business – but no matter who you get to represent you in your search for a new home, here are a few helpful hints to get started…

Pre-qualify for a loan

The most important first step is to learn how much you qualify for, how much your monthly payments will be and how much cash up front you will need to buy a home.

Shop for a Mortgage Lender

Ask friends, family and experienced REALTORS who they would recommend. Lenders vary by cost and quality of service- so choose wisely.

Be represented by a REALTOR

All REALTORS owe every buyer honesty in dealing in every real estate transaction. A professional REALTOR will assist you in every phase of the real estate transaction. A REALTOR will check the sold prices of homes in the area you are interested in to determine a proper sales price. A REALTOR will also inform you if it is customary for the seller to pay closing costs or provide a home warranty.

Get a home inspection!

It is important to make every effort to determine if your prospective new home has any defects that should be addressed. A home inspector can assist you with considering every aspect of verifying the condition of the property.
