Steps in the Buying Process

  1. Contact Peggy Wolfe: Together we can define the property you desire. I will unconditionally advocate your best interests including helping negotiate the lowest price and best terms.  As a local Steamboat Springs Realtor, I can help you navigate all factors that are important to you.
  2. Get Pre-Approval for Financing: Know your budget first! You should know what you can afford before looking for property in too high a price range – or you may be missing out on your dream home if you are looking for in a price range that is too low! Plus, Sellers may be more amenable to buyers who are pre-qualified for mortgages.
  3. Visit and Re-Visit Properties: Together we can visit properties you are interested in. I recommend you visit the properties at different times of day, and day of the week to see neighborhood activity, traffic, and even how sunlight hits the home.
  4. Compare Other Sales: I’ll help you keep your finger on the pulse of the market so we can prepare the most reasonable offer.
  5. Make an Offer: Peggy Wolfe can prepare an official offer for you. The offer can be made contingent upon time to conduct additional research until you become more knowledgeable about what you are buying. If what you find out is unacceptable, you can then cancel the contract without penalty.
  6. Get the Property Inspected: Hiring a qualified inspector to inspect the property is good insurance that there are no hidden surprises after closing. This is also an opportunity to negotiate repairs prior to closing.
  7. Review Homeowners Association (HOA) Documents: Request annual HOA budgets and meeting meetings to give yourself a good idea of the pulse of the association, points of contention, and potential capital improvements which could cost you money in the future. If you are purchasing a vacation rental property, we’ll also review existing reservations and the management contracts.
  8. Closing: In our offer, we will delineate a closing time and location. Other closing steps include: Reviewing preliminary settlement statement, including closing costs and final cash amount for closing; Obtaining cashiers check for the final amount; Ordering a changeover of utilities, mail, service etc.; contact final walk-through of the property; sign closing documents, receive keys and it’s all yours!
