You’re buying a home in Metro Detroit, Michigan. Maybe you’re looking in downtown Plymouth. Or maybe downtown Northville. Or in a great new sub in Canton. Or perhaps in Livonia’s charming Rosedale Park area. Or near the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Or in beautiful downtown Birmingham. Wherever you may be looking–whether in Wayne, Oakland or Washtenaw County, and whether you’ve done it before or you’re a first-time homebuyer–the process can be daunting. At Professional One Real Estate, we like to make things simple, smooth and easy for our clients.
And that’s why we put together this “Buying a Home” page, to help you navigate that process. Because the process in reality does proceed in “sections” of activity–understanding real estate agency and disclosures, finding a great real estate agent to properly represent you, getting pre-approved for a mortgage, searching for your next home, finding that home, offering on it and then, hopefully, closing on it and moving into it!–we set up the page in that way, so you can focus on one of those sections at a time.
Also below, we’ve included free items you can download to help you further, whether it’s selling your current home for the maximum the market will allow (which is crucial when you’re thinking about buying a home), or finding the perfect real estate agent to help you with your next purchase or sale, or getting a a good idea as to what your current home is worth right now. Our goal is to help to educate you about the real estate process, and we believe these items will help you. So, please download and enjoy!
