Buying Your Next Home

Buying Process

Buying your next home should be an exciting time.

Sure, there’s normally at least a little stress involved in the process. Why not use an agent with the experience and knowledge to make sure your next move is a smooth one?


One of the first steps in the process of buying your next home is pre-qualification. With a letter from a lender stating that you are pre-qualified for a loan, you instantly gain a better bargaining position once you do find a home you like. CENTURY 21 Tri-Cities can provide you with the names of preferred lenders who our REALTORS® trust to treat their buyers with the same professionalism and expertise that they do.


Your Needs

Next, when you choose a CENTURY 21 Tri-Cities REALTOR® to help buy a new home, he or she will take the time to make sure he or she knows what you’re looking for. By meeting with you and understanding your lifestyle, requirements for the size of home you’re looking for, and other criteria, your REALTOR® can start researching what homes are available that might meet your needs.


Home Tour

Once your REALTOR® has identified some potential homes, he or she will take you on a tour to view homes and begin narrowing down your search. With well over one thousand homes on the market at a time, you’ll want a CENTURY 21 Tri-Cities REALTOR® searching on your behalf.


The Offer

Once you choose a home you’d like to make an offer on, your REALTOR® will act as your liaison with the seller. He or she will handle the negotiations, including the initial offer as well as any counteroffers that may occur.

If your offer is accepted, your CENTURY 21 Tri-Cities REALTOR® will help you through the process of the home inspection, closing, and buyer orientation.

Our goal is to take the stress out of finding your next home. When you’re ready to start the search for your next home, call one of our REALTORS® and find out why so many people turn to us time and time again.
