Packed with information to aid first-time and repeat buyers alike, the Homebuyer Toolkit takes consumers through 10 key steps for completing a successful transaction, including:

  • Find a Qualified Buyer’s Rep
  • Assess Your Credit and Finances
  • Assess Your Wants and Needs in a Home
  • Search for Your Home
  • Negotiate Terms
  • Obtain a Mortgage
  • Prepare for Closing Day
  • Close
  • Move
  • Celebrate!

The Home Buyers Tool Kit includes:

  • Expanded discussion of buyer representation—what it is, why it’s important, and how to go about finding and choosing an Accredited Buyer’s Representative. Also, the role of an ABR® and the value one brings to a transaction are discussed throughout the booklet, in conjunction with key steps in the home buying process.
  • Financial considerations are given additional coverage, with a stronger emphasis on examining a buyer’s current financial picture, the full cost of home ownership, researching lenders, and securing preapprovals early in the buying process. The steps involved in obtaining a mortgage are also discussed in greater detail.
  • Negotiating tips, beginning with what buyers should say and do whenever they come in contact with another agent, such as attending open houses on their own. Guidance is also offered on contingencies, disclosures, counteroffers, and more.
