Thinking about Buying a Home?

Hi there, so you’re thinking of buying a home and you don’t know where to start. Hi, I'm Tara Powell with the RE/MAX NC Coastal Team. Purchasing a home is most likely going to be one of the largest investments in your life. You need an experienced professional agent to walk you through each phase to ensure your best interests are protected. We've sold over $90 million worth of property here on the coast of NC and assisted tons of buyers over the years. Here’s how we will help you. First, we will make sure you are qualified to purchase a home, you’ll know things like what types of loans you can qualify for and what the full payment will be including the payment, interest, taxes, and insurance. Once we know you’re qualified, we’ll go house hunting and make sure you are fully aware of neighborhoods, schools, and anything that could possibly be problematic with the area or home that could affect the value later on. Then we help you negotiate an offer in a way that is beneficial for both you and the seller. Once it’s accepted, we will collect your due diligence fee and earnest money deposit, and start scheduling inspections and the appraisal. We are diligent about making sure we don’t miss any contractual deadlines so that we keep your deposit safe, and you won’t be at risk of losing it. It’s super important after the inspections to know what is reasonable to ask for from the seller. We will be in constant communication with all of the parties in the transaction to ensure that your best interest is covered and that we can close and close on time. There are so many more parts to the transaction I could be here for a few hours telling you, so better yet, give me or someone on my team a call and we will earn your trust by walking you through step by step and ensuring you make the right decisions along the way until we give you the keys to your new home. Even better becoming your friend through the process. Please remember, it is so important to have proper representation from an experienced professional who is on your team. Give me a call and let’s see how we can get you into your new home.
