First Time Homebuyers
We'll take on the stress, so you can focus on what's really important.
Owning a home is a dream that many people share, but most people don't know when or how to begin the process.
If you are hoping to begin the search for your first home, we can help point you in the right direction. Buying your first home is a big step, and can become overwhelming if you don't have a dedicated buyer's agent on your side.
We can skillfully guide you from start to finish, so you can enjoy this once in a lifetime milestone. You're only a first time buyer once, and we know how to help.
Prerequisites for Homebuyers
Changewinds Realty has standardized operating procedures for the prerequisites prospective homebuyers must meet prior to receiving any services. This ensures that all buyers are treated equally and that every offer we submit, for every buyer client is as strong as it can be in a highly competitive market. With many properties ending up with multiple offers, our highly skilled agents want to arm you with the strongest chance possible of beating out other buyers.
Buyers must review and sign the NY state Agency Disclosure before discussing their financial situation, and provide their agent with a proof of funds letter, or mortgage prequalification prior to making any offers.
Buyers should have a minimum of 2 forms of documentation showing name and address prior to submitting any offers. This may include your mortgage prequalification, a personal check, a proof of funds letter, or photo ID.
Exclusive Broker Agreements are not required by Changewinds Realty, however Agents have the option to establish exclusive agreements with buyers as long as both parties agree to the terms.
We pride ourselves on community involvement and maintaining relationships with the people in our small towns. We have sponsored baseball teams, theater productions, charity runs, school plays and we look forward to many more opportunities. Some of our Agents grew up in the Capital Region and the Catskills, while others found their way here later in life, but we have all made a home here and love to welcome new neighbors.
