Are you Buying a home?

Connect with qualified professionals who can make buying a home, easier.

The DRE specializes in real estate agents, but we also are home to Escrow Agents, Property Managers, and more. We start with a simple vetting process to find qualified agents. Then we ask what you are specifically looking for such as your timeframe, area, budget, etc so we can match you with agents that can help you.

How is the DRE different from Zillow, Trulia, Yelp, Realtor.com, and others?

Unlike many real estate websites, the DRE does not recommend agents based on any financial compensation from the agent.


Agents can list for FREE in the DRE, and they can pay a nominal fee to be featured in the search listings if they are verified as licensed in their state. It’s as simple as that, no commission-based preference, no referral fees, and no broker agreements.

 

How to Buy a Home

Let’s start here. How much money do you need as a down payment on a primary residence? Now this largely depends on the type of loan you get and the type of loan you get will affect how much you need on  a down payment.

Getting Prequalified

The good thing about getting pre-qualified first before going and looking at a property is that when you do eventually find the right place, you already have everything waiting with the lenders so that you can hit the ground running. And also I found that anytime you find a great property, chances are you’re not the only one that’s looking at it. And you’re going to be competing with other people who feel the exact same way as you do about it.

Timing

Many buyers believe that the best time to buy is between spring and summer, and the worst time to buy would be winter. And this one is partially true. If you’re looking to buy a home in spring or summer, typically you will find a little bit more inventory on the market as many sellers wait for these times to put their homes for sale.

Getting an Agent

Should you get a real estate agent or not? Now, this is a tough one for me to answer because I am a real estate agent. So my answer is going to be skewed slightly towards the Yes,

Timeline 

Realistically, for most buyers, I would probably expect this entire home buying process to take anywhere between 45 days and maybe 120 days, I found this to be normal for most people. Typically I see this as being a 30 to 90-day house hunt and then another 30 to 45 days to do all the inspections, get the loan and close on the property.

Making an Offer

Just think to yourself 10 years from now, are you going to care if you paid an extra few grand for the property? Chances are, 10 years from now, it’s not really going to matter.
