What to Expect When Searching For and Purchasing Your Home

The Daryl Smith Team will help you through the entire process of buying a home, starting with selecting a reputable lender, searching for your new home, and continuing right through closing – and beyond.

Buying a home is not like buying a car, a mutual fund or other commodity. It can be a life-changing event. The Daryl Smith Team fully understands each element of the real estate process and will show you the right steps to take, helping you avoid any mishaps with your home purchase.

As a buyer, a REALTOR®’s services don’t cost you anything. The Daryl Smith Team’s buyer specialists are ready to put their sharp negotiating skills and local market expertise to work for you.

All that’s left is for you to create your Wish List. Start by writing down what you like and dislike about your current home.

3 Reasons to meet with a lender BEFORE finding your dream home:

  • You’ll know exactly what your budget is and what price range you’ll be most comfortable in. You won’t have to waste time looking at homes over or under what you want to spend.
  • Your offer on that perfect house will be stronger. The sellers are assured that you already have financing lined up and are serious – unlike other buyers who want the same house.
  • You’ll know you have great financing: a low interest rate, lower down payment, and an established monthly payment. All of which means more home for your money!
