How to Buy West Covina Real Estate

Ready to start touring homes in West Covina? That’s fantastic! The first thing you’ll want to do is talk with a loan officer. Sellers will take you more seriously if you are pre-approved for a loan. Pre-approval is proof that you can afford the house and it will help narrow down your house hunting options. 

You will need to start working with a real estate agent who has experience in the West Covina real estate market. Be sure to show them all the homes you’ve saved. This will help when deciding on the properties you actually want to consider. Touring homes is very time consuming. In fact, it will likely take a couple days and most real estate agents will not recommend viewing more than six homes in one day.

Once you’ve visited your top picks, you and your agent will discuss an offer to present the seller and await a response. If your offer is accepted you and the seller will complete each of the steps outlined in the agreed-upon offer. Often this includes any repairs or inspections that need to be done and paid for as stated in the agreement. The process will differ case by case, but your real estate agent will be trained to handle all situations and they are there to guide you in the decision making process.
