A  good Realtor will prepare you for each step, and provide the necessary resources to accomplish them.

And Lots of Steps Within Each Stage 

Because home prices are rising, putting off buying a home (even by a year) will cost you substantially more for the same property. You also will lose out on the appreciation (since prices ar erising) which can also be quite substantial. 

3 Key Reasons It is a Good Time to Buy

I.  Home Prices are Rising

Interest rates are expected to rise in the first quarter of 2017. 

When interest rates go up even 1 point, it makes the same property much more expensive on a monthly basis.

Buying property is an investment in your future because it is a forced savings, provides tax deductions (why not let Uncle Sam pay some of your monthly housing costs), builds equity and overall wealth.

Once the contract is reviewed and approved by both party's attorneys, the inspection phase of the transaction begins.

 

The inspection process is meant to protect buyers by having their own licensed professional inspector inspect the structure, the electrical  and plumbing systems, test for the presence of termites, radon, and any evidence of mold or asbestos or other environmental hazards in the home. If the general inspector feels there is evidence of potential problems with any of these items he will recommend they be inspected by a specialist who can further evaluate the issue.
