  2. Contact a loan officer and get your mortgage pre-approved.
     
  3. Contact a Preferred Properties sales associate to begin searching for your home (and to list your current home if you plan on selling).

  4. Once you find the home you want to make an offer on, you'll sign and Offer to Purchase agreement and give the seller earnest money. If your offer is accepted, determine the closing date and have the house inspected to insure there are no serious problems with the property.
     
  5. Tell your loan officer that you've found a property so they can begin the appraisal and title process. And, don't forget to lock in your interest rate. Your loan officer will provide you with a good faith estimate which shows your monthly mortgage payment as well as the estimated cash you'll need for closing. The title insurance company will then notify you of the time and date you close and the items you'll need to bring to the closing.
     
  6. Contact the phone companyutilities, cable company, moving company post office, newspaper, magazines, friends and family and tell them when you'll be moving.
     
  7. Pack and move in to your new home.
     

Home Warranty

A home warranty is a service contract that protects against mechanical breakdown of covered systems and appliances in the home. The program provides coverage for breakdowns in major systems like heating and plumbing, as well as major appliances, from listing date to a full year from the date of closing.

Protect yourself before, during and after the sale or purchase of your home. A home warranty coverage protects you at each critical phase, helping you to avoid costly repairs and delays.
