Hey guys. Today, we're going to actually talk about probably the most important thing we do talk about, which is real estate. We're going to talk about the steps that you take when you're looking to buy a home. So what are the logical steps someone takes when they're buying a home? That's what we're going to talk about today.
So, number one step is, you need to identify a real estate agent that's going to be able to help you through that process. The first thing you're going to want to do is, you're going to want to actually find somebody that's going to have a meeting with you, what we call an initial consultation. So, something to get together and talk about what your particular needs are as they pertain to real estate. This actual meeting will be broken down into a lot of phases. We have a timeline that we go through with our clients at that first initial consultation.
Some of those things that you're going to go over and phase one of that checklist is that buyers initial consultation. At that point, we're going to talk about agency relationship. This is required by state to actually review how agency relationship works and how people talk to each other through that process, and who's representing who through that process. So you're protected through that whole process.
The other things we're going to discuss at that actual meeting are what are you looking for? What are your needs as it pertains to a home? What is going to be important to you as a home buyer? We're also going to go through things like making sure that you know where you're going to get the money. It could be you're paying cash for the home. It could be you're getting a mortgage for the home.
We're going to introduce you to that process and make sure that you have the resources you need to actually move forward through that process. So those are some of the first steps. We're going to sit down and we're going to go through a huge sheet of questions, a questionnaire on per se to understand exactly what's going to be important to you as a home buyer to find you the perfect home.
Also, we're going to go through all of the things we're going to do as an actual home professional to help you find that home. So we're going to review our whole process of the things that we do that is unique to the process that we provide as a value or a service provider to our customers.
Not all real estate agents do the exact same thing. Each does their own individual thing. As a company we've decided to do as much as we can to provide value to our clients to make sure that you're picking a real estate company or agent that is doing a lot of things for you and not just going with the flow. So that is step one, module one. I'm going to come back and tell you about module two here in a minute. I hope you're finding this helpful.
