Step One: Choose an Agent

Real estate agents are experts at guiding you through the home buying process. Choose an agent that has the experience, the tools, and the desire to make your home search a success.
John Freiert is an expert negotiator, multi million dollar real estate producer, and has over 30 years sales experience.


Step Two: Get Approved

John will guide you step-by-step through the loan process, helping you determine your borrowing needs and finding the right mortgage lender.
Getting a preapproval early helps you identify your ideal price range and kicks off the home buying process in the right direction. In today's market, sellers may not accept your contract offer without a preapproval letter from your lender attached to the offer.


Step Three: Choose Your New Home and Make an Offer

The most exciting and crucial step of the process is finding the perfect property and negotiating the right price. John is devoted to helping you identify which homes meet your requirements and guiding in making the right home decision. From searches on the multiple list data base, to going out and touring homes, you'll want the advice of an agent familiar with what to look for and what to watch out for when choosing a home. John is as excited as you are to get the absolute best price and close the deal!
Making an offer on the home you selected is a critical moment. Here is where John's expert negotiation skills truly shine. John will sit down and discuss with you market conditions, average prices in a particular area, and help you come up with an offer that makes sense for you and your family.

Step Four: Inspections, Appraisals and Title Work

To ensure your new home is as good as it looks, inspections are always recommended and appraisals will be done to certify the home's value. If any repairs are required, John will make sure any recommended repairs are properly negotiated on your behalf. Once you're happy with all inspections and negotiations, John will work with your chosen title company to assist them in getting the information they need to help ensure your new home can be delivered with a clean and clear title.

Step Five: Settlement and Moving Day!

Settlement is the final signing over of the property to you, the new owner. John helps make it easy for you by examining your settlement sheet to help you understand your transaction charges are exactly as you had expected.
