Buying a Home

For most people, buying a home is one of the biggest transactions they will ever make.  The financial and emotional stakes are high - but the rewards can pay dividends for a lifetime.  Plain and simple, owning a home can improve your quality of life, provide stability, and give you a sense of control you just can't get from renting.  You have a place to live when you rent, but buying is something much deeper and better.
Whether you are a first-time home buyer, or a seasoned veteran, you are probably weighing the benefits of having a Broker represent you in this transaction. Buying a home is a complex process involving stacks of paperwork and a number of outside service providers and contractors.  An experienced buyer's agent can guide you through the process, answering your questions and serving as your advocate.  Your Broker will help you find the property that fits your needs, submit offers and counteroffers, suggest a good property inspector and other professionals, and provide all sorts of relevant advice.  With a buyer's agent, you'll have someone on your side, looking out for your interests every step of the way. 
Our Brokers at RE/MAX Direct Realty are local experts that can help you through every step of the home buying process. Several of our Brokers specifically specialize in representing buyers in real estate transactions. To talk with one of our Brokers about what to expect in the home buying process, call our office at 425-640-5600. As you make the decision about who will represent you in this important transaction, you can begin a search for homes in your desired area, or get an idea of what you can afford from our mortgage estimator, or by contacting one of our preferred lenders.
