Buying a House

The Home Buying Process

Locating and buying a home that will meet your criteria can be a stressful time. Our goal is to make this process as smooth as possible. We are experts in the Fort Worth and surrounding areas, and once we discover what type of house you are searching for, finding the house of your dreams will be a simple process. Even for first-time home buyers.

Before you start searching for a house you should consider the following:

School

Location

Where do you want to live? Are there particular neighborhoods or communities that you like? Is there a specific elementary school that you want your children to attend?

Type of House

How many bedrooms and bathrooms are you looking for? Is there a particular type or style of house that would you like?

House Type
Patio

Extra Rooms and Amenities

Are you needing a home office? Do you want a media room or flex-room? Are you needing space or a backyard kitchen to entertain guests?

Commute Time

Have you tested the commute time to work and schools?

Traffic
Neighborhood Pool

Neighborhood

Do you want a gated community or one with a community pool? Is the location convenient for the sports, recreation or other activities that you enjoy participating in? Have you visited the neighborhood on a weeknight or a weekend to see how quiet or active the area will be?

Price Range

Have you determined your target purchase price or worked with a lender to get prequalified?
