Guide to Finding and Buying My Home!

Home Buyer's Guide
Where Do We Start? With a map and then a quick get-together with one of our brokers who’ll listen to your plans and interests. We’ll ask whether you’re looking for a home, condominium, or building site. We’ll want to know your vision: a house in a town, a country escape, an urban walking neighborhood. We’ll talk some rough numbers.
How Long Does It Take? Our schedule is your schedule. Some of our clients have found homes they love in a couple of days or even less. Others take a more leisurely approach. Our objective, always, is to direct you to property you'll fall in love with relatively quickly. But if it takes days and miles, that's not a problem!
What About Earnest Money? Your offer to purchase is normally presented with a 1% deposit in most markets, often wire-transferred to a local title company or delivered via check within two days of agreement.
When Can We Close? Of course, but if the seller rejects your offer, don't be discouraged—we will help you figure out the next step to take, whether to pursue the original property or to move on.
How Do We Arrange Financing? Many buyers secure financing through their own banking relationships. We can also recommend several mortgage brokers who will work on your behalf to find you the best terms. Processing takes about 45 days. Be prepared to provide tax returns and thorough financial information.
What Will You Do For Us? Besides helping you track and find your dream home? We handle the big picture and these countless little details:
  • order the appropriate inspections
  • work with your lender and the appraiser to be certain your loan is approved in time
  • confer with the title company about dozens of closing details and the preparation of your settlement statement
  • transfer utilities into your name
  • make sure you receive a recorded deed and title policy
  • remain your primary source of information and assistance, months and years after closing.
When Do We Start? How about now? Explore our Buyer's Guide and see what fires your imagination.
Once you have found your Dream Indiana Home it’s time to sit down and write an offer. Your BHHS Indiana Realty Agent will assist you through the entire process, from writing the offer to signing the closing documents.
  • Writing the Original Offer – Don’t feel intimated by the long document; let your Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Indiana Realty Agent guide you through the process smoothly. Remember, the seller has the right to counter back negotiating specific parts of the original offer. Some offers have several Counter Offers, others have none or very few.
  • Earnest Money – Is a percentage of the original offer price to prove to the seller you are serious about buying the home and that you are making the offer in good faith.
  • Home Inspection – It is recommended you hire a Professional Home Inspector to look for imperfections that can’t be seen by the naked eye such as; the structure and foundation, roof, exterior, major systems (electrical, heating, cooling and plumbing) and appliances that will stay with the home. Based on the Home Inspectors findings, you can then negotiate repairs if necessary.
  • The Closing – At the closing you and the seller sign the required legal documents selling the property to you, the buyer. Your Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Indiana Realty Agent can go to the closing in case there are any questions or concerns you have for them.
