Buying a Property?

Are you tired of paying rent and not getting anything in return when you move out? Have you outgrown your current home and are looking for more elbow room? Justin Burleson in the Triangle area can help. We will help you put together a plan so you can focus on finding the right property for your needs. Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or a long-time homeowner, we’ll ensure that you can make an educated decision prior to investing.

Buying a home is a big decision. Whether this is your first home or you are an experienced buyer, you always want to be sure all your decisions are made carefully and thoughtfully.

It is vitally important to have your documentation ready to go when we find the perfect home. A 10-minute conversation with a lender will get you started on the right foot. After that, we can start looking at homes and narrowing our options. When we go under contract, your lender will require a number of documents to start the loan process. These documents might include the following:

  • Bank Account statements
  • Credit card statements
  • Auto loans
  • Recent pay stubs
  • Tax returns for two years
  • 401K statements, life insurance, and other financial statements

Our team of lenders can assist you with document preparation before making an offer.  Contact me now if you have any questions about this process.

Justin Burleson will help you determine exactly what you’re looking for before we begin searching. Do you want a single family home, a townhome or a condo? How many bedrooms and bathrooms are right for your family? Answering questions like these in advance will help us tailor our property selections to your needs.

Once we have a clear view of your goals and have set a price range, it’s time to go shopping! Justin will set up a personalized search for the type of home you’re looking for and send results directly to your inbox. When you see something that interests you, we’ll pay a visit to the home and make sure it’s a good fit.

In the meantime, take a drive around the area of town you’d like to live in. See what’s close by in terms of shopping and conveniences. Look at the types of homes in those areas and decide whether it’s right for you. There are many great places to live in the Triangle, so driving through different neighborhoods should give you some excellent options to choose from. Start your search by getting in touch with Justin Burleson.

Once you’ve found your dream home, it’s time to make an offer. Justin Burleson will discuss how much of your closing costs you want the seller to pay, establish due diligence fees and earnest money, detail any appliances you want to be included with the house and specify similar terms with the seller. Our team will then write these terms down and submit an official offer to the seller. The seller has the right to counter our offer with their own terms. Once both parties have come to an agreement on terms, we are under contract!

Schedule an appointment with Justin Burleson, Realtor, to learn more about the closing process.

Once your offer has been accepted, it’s time to schedule a home inspection. A licensed home inspector will go to the home and check the major systems of the house to identify any potential problems. The inspector will prepare a report and give recommendations on what needs to be repaired. Based on this report, our agents will ask the seller to repair some or all of the items, or renegotiate the terms of the contract in lieu of the repairs being done.

While this is happening, you will be working with your lender to ensure he has all the documentation he needs to get your loan approved. An appraisal will be ordered to determine the market value of the property for the lending institution. When all the repair negotiations are complete, the appraisal report is in and the loan is approved, we’re finally ready to close on the property!
