Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or someone who has purchased before, the timeline of events can often be confusing. We’re here to help! Our simple infographic will be revealed over the next few weeks, and it outlines the entire process of purchasing a home. Below you’ll find the third step, and remember to check back often as we continue to complete this infographic.


1. Determine your objectives. Read more about determining your housing needs in Part 1 of this series.

2. Financial qualification. Learn about getting pre-approved in Part 2 of this series.

3. Tour and select a property. Here comes the fun part — touring and finding your next dream home! Your real estate agent can help you locate homes with your desired traits from step one of this series. Innovative tools like myShorewest help our agents create custom searches based on your housing criteria, plus buyers receive email alerts as soon as new qualified properties hit the market. You can also set target prices for various properties and get recommendations direct from your agent. Once you have found your next home, you and your agent will make an offer to purchase the property. Then, you’ll negotiate with the seller until your offer has been approved. This third step in the home buying process seems simple, but it can take time to find a home that is perfect for you. Working with a real estate agent is the best way to explore all of your housing options and write a more appealing offer for sellers.
