Buying Real Estate in South Florida

Purchasing a home is an exciting albeit significant life decision. A buyer must do thorough research and be clear as to his/her home purchase priorities. Although the internet is a terrific research tool – over 92% of homebuyers use the web to preview homes – it is no substitute for a knowledgeable local real estate agent like Marisa Chisena. Below you will find a snapshot of the typical buying process when buying a home or condo in Miami. I've organized it in a way you can understand easily with tabs simplify the process for YOU. That's what I'm here for!

The Buying Process

  1. We meet and Create a "Wish List" based on your DNA (Desire, Needs and Affordability).
  2. We determine a budget that works for you and your family and
  3. We apply and secure a Mortage PreApproval

  1. The fun begins. I will do the research while you get your family ready for the big future.
  2. I will narrow down the properties matching your DNA and we tour homes at your convenience.
  3. We tour as many as we need to find the right property.
  4. You will know the moment you walk in the property if its the right place.
  5. We identify your best options and prepare the offers.

  1. We present offers based on the market research I do.
  2. Negotiate the contract until we agree on all terms.
  3. We keep negotiations open until offer is accepted and even after if needed.
  4. Finally we reach an agreement and you will be under contract at this point. YAY!

  1. After acceptance, we schedule inspections, I will take care of paperwork.
  2. I will manage transaction from beginning to closing.
  3. We will review inspection reports carefully and calculate cost of repairs.
  4. We negotiate based on results once again or accept results.
  5. We order Title work and Appraisal by Lender

  1. Once we meet all the requirements by lender, we schedule closing.
  2. We conduct a final walkthrough of the property to make sure its in the same condition.
  3. We close and at this point you are a new home owner. Keys will be given to you at this time.

This is my favorite step. The day you start making memories with your family. The finish line but a new beginning for you and your family. I hope you get to enjoy it for many years to come. Congrats!
