The Official Buyer's Roadmap to be Home for the Holidays

Official Buyers Roadmap

“What are the steps to be in a home by year’s end?” This is a common question we start to hear this time of year. Good news: if your 2024 to-do list says “buy a home", you have the perfect amount of time to be settled into a new house by the holidays. Here's a simple roadmap:

  • July: Reach out to us for a buyer consultation to make a game plan.
  • August: Chat with a lender to nail down your home price range and pre-approval letter - typically good for 90 days. (We have great lender recs!)
  • September: Make a Wants vs. Needs list, and officially begin your home explorations!
  • October: Narrow down favorites and submit your offer(s) with our help.
  • November: Seal the deal on your new place and wrap up paperwork by month's end.
  • December: Move in, deck the halls, and enjoy the holidays in your cozy new home!

The TL;DR:
Reach out to us ASAP! You have the perfect amount of time on your hands to be home for the holidays.
