Our 9-Step Home Buyer Process

We'll Guide You Through Every Step

1.

Getting To Know You

When you're ready, we'll meet with you in person for a preliminary buyer consultation. During this meeting, we’ll discuss exactly what you want and need in a new home and give you an overview of the home buying process. 

2.

Pre-Qualify Before You Buy

This essential step will help you understand what you can afford and give us added leverage in negotiations. If you’d like, we can introduce you to our trusted mortgage partner, who will simplify the lending process and help you secure the loan you need.

3.

Focus On Your Best Options

Now that we know more about you and what you're looking for, we'll send you notifications for listings that match your specific criteria. If you see something you like, just let us know, and we can proceed to the next step.

4.

See Them For Yourself

This is where things get exciting. We'll schedule and take you on tours of the homes you select. We'll also discuss with you the benefits of each option and make sure the homes fit within your specific budget.

5.

Make An Offer

When you find the perfect home, we'll present the seller with a formal written offer. We'll also advise you on how to best handle any of the seller's counteroffers, and negotiate on your behalf until your offer is accepted.

6.

Check It Twice

We want to make sure the purchase you’re about to make is a smart one. We'll guide you though the appraisal and inspection process to verify the price matches to condition of the home and to ensure that everything in the home functions properly.

7.

It's Closing Time

This part of the process involves reviewing all the paperwork and signing your name to all the documents. We'll be there with you at the closing table to answer any questions you might have. Once you complete this step the home is yours.

8.

Get The Keys & Celebrate!

Now that you've signed all the paperwork, it’s time to move in! We'll make sure you get your keys so you can begin planning your move right away. But first, take a moment to celebrate - you deserve it!

9.

Share With Friends & Family

Be sure to share your positive experience with friends and family. When they're ready to buy or sell a home, we'll be there for them, just like we were for you.

What Clients Are Saying About Us

"My husband and I have been dealing with Max Hahne since 2004. He has been our long time trusted Broker. We would recommend him as he his highly informative and knows his business! A big thank you to Max and Engel and Voelkers on our recent sale." 

~ Brenda M. 

“Max is the man!! He has an astute understanding of both the psychological and analytical skills to maximize price advantage for his clients. He is strongly committed to his clients and will save them significant money. All too often, emphasis is placed on closing the sale with greed, fear and urgency tactics rather than enhancing the financial interests of the client. Should not cost or selling price be the priority for you? Thank you Max.” 

~ Brian and Jo Whiston 

Max was very helpful and attentive from the beginning of my house selling experience. He made himself available whenever I needed reassurance and advice. He went out of his way to make me feel comfortable with both selling my home and finding a new one. I would recommend Max and Engel Völkers very highly to my friends.”
