Buying >  Ten Steps To Buying

Just Ten Easy Steps and You’re In Your New Home!


We're with you every step-by-step of the way to make your new home purchase an easy and fun experience!


 

 

 

 



Here's a quick look at the steps you'll take when buying your first home with Edina Realty:

1. Contact your Edina Realty REALTOR® to get valuable home buying tips, information on the current housing market and financial advice.

2.  Figure out how much home you can afford. You can do this by using our Finance Center Tools.

3.  Conduct a preliminary search with Edina Realty's  Property Finder. You can save some of your searches and schedule home showings online.

4.  Learn about home financing and start the pre-approval process online.

5.  Contact your Edina Realty REALTOR® to look for a house that meets your needs.

6.  Once you find a home that you want to  make an offer on, you'll sign a purchase agreement and give the seller earnest money to seal the deal. If your offer is accepted (sometimes with contingencies), determine a date you wish to close.

7.  Have your new home inspected to ensure there's nothing seriously wrong with the property and get homeowner’s insurance to protect yourself against any unforeseen calamity. You may also want to check for mold in the home...learn more from the MN Dept. of Health.

8.  Notify your mortgage consultant that you've found a property so they can begin the appraisaland title process. And, lock in your interest rate. Your mortgage consultant will send you a new good faith estimate which shows your monthly mortgage payment as well as your estimated cash needed for closing. Edina Realty Title will notify you of the time and date you close on your home and the items you'll need to  bring to closing.

9.  Notify your phone company, utilities (don't forget water and sewer), moving company, post office, newspaper and magazines, friends and family (see our moving checklist) and change your mailing address.

10.  Pack and move!
