When buying a house there are 6 phases that the Aussie Team educates the buyer on:
1. Working With a REALTOR
Working with a REALTOR does NOT cost you anything! That’s right, we are paid for selling the house by the SELLER, BUILDER or BANK. Our service is free to you and we can show you any house including For Sale By Owner.
Pre-qualifying and beginning the search - this is the most important part of the process. What the buyer qualifies for will ultimately determine what they can afford to buy. Buyers you need to know 3 things.
Inspections are just as important. Most buyers view them as an expense when they should be viewed as an insurance against a bad purchase. The most common inspections in Tulsa are:
3. Starting the Search
Once the Aussie Team has your pre-qualification letter we can start looking. We know buyers are online looking at homes constantly and we do not want to bombard you with additional emails, however, our searches are the most current and up to date. Now we also give you the capabilities to search on our site the same way as you do on Zillow or Trulia. You can email us directly from the site or save your favorites in your cart - yes just like shopping online. Contact us at AussieTeamTulsa.com to get started. Remember working with a REALTOR does not cost you anything!
4. Process of Elimination
Once we have identified your favorites it is time to start the process of elimination. Aussie Team schedules your showings 6 properties at a time until you find "the ONE" and that is the one we make an offer on. Yes it is that easy. If we have looked 10-15 houses and you hate them all we will revisit the your criteria. This is an indication that something is amiss and an adjustment needs to be made, or the buyer needs to up their price range or adjust their expectations.
Negotiating a contract and making it through inspections is no easy feat. To make an offer the buyer also needs earnest money $500-$5000 depending on the price point of the house. That is why it is CRUCIAL that you have someone on your side during this process. A strong REALTOR will ask the right questions and get the buyer what they most need and want, such as:
Oklahoma is an abstract state. This means we have written history of ownership that is reviewed and updated with every transaction. Because of this, our closing process is different from the rest of the country. On the day of closing you own the house, you can move in and start your new life in your very own home.
Buying in any market can be emotional, stressful, and overwhelming BUT not if you have a team of specialists helping you every step of the way. Start today by letting us know your wish list and we will start the process with you!
