If you need recommendations, here are 3 brokers in the area who will not only advocate for you, but who have served themselves. 

STEP THREE

Find a Military Friendly Real Estate Agent

As a military member, your buying process can look a lot different than the average homebuyer. Your needs are unique and your timelines can be tight. In fact, according to a study by the National Association of Realtors, military members were more likely to use a real estate agent due to extra concerns. Finding one who not only knows the ins and outs of the area, but also is familiar with the unique intricacies surrounding the process is important for your success. 

Whether you decide to work with us or not, here are 4 reasons you should use a military-friendly real estate agent.

STEP FOUR

Search For Homes and Choose the One for You

Start by identifying your baseline needs: How many bedrooms and bathrooms? Do you have a particular school district in mind? Write everything down. Keep in mind your desired mortgage amount, the current market conditions and your future plans. Choose the one that best fits your needs and lean into your agent for help and guidance. 

STEP FIVE

Make An Offer

Make an offer based on current market conditions, condition of the home itself, and your timeline. Your agent's negotiation skills will come into play here to help you get the best bang for your buck while staying within your financial goals.

STEP SIX

Finalize Funding, Close & MOVE IN!

Typically speaking, the mortgage process takes between one and two months from the time of offer to closing. Your agent will help you draft the contract with all terms surrounding your purchase. Then, you get to take a deep breath and relax in your new home.
