The Home Buying Process

You can rely on the Czuba Group for guidance at every step of the journey.

 

1. Meet with your Czuba Group Realtor

Discuss your wish list for your new home and share your questions.

2. Pre-Qualify for a Mortgage

The Czuba Group connects you with lenders who will determine your buying power. It is essential that you obtain a pre-approval for your mortgage loan, unless you are paying cash for your home.

3. Tour Properties

Together we begin the search for your new home, both online and in person, until we find the home you love.

4. Prepare the Offer

We strategize with you to prepare your offer. This includes discussing and determining the terms and conditions such as down payment, earnest money deposit, settlement date, financing contingency, and home-inspection contingency.

5. Negotiate the Contract

We present your offer and negotiate on your behalf. The Czuba Group has a successful track record in achieving our clients’ goals.

6. Manage the Transaction

Once you are under contract, the Czuba Group manages all details through settlement, including contingency satisfaction, as well as coordination with your lender, settlement company and the seller’s agent. We are in touch with you every step of the way to ensure a smooth transaction.

7. Complete the Closing

We are with you at settlement when you sign the necessary documents to complete the transaction. At this point, the home is officially yours and you receive the keys.
