THE BUYER'S TIMELINE
01 / Agent Matching
We’ll pair you with one of our licensed team members who’s knowledgeable about your prospective neighborhoods.
02 / Pre-qualification
Unless you’re paying in cold hard cash, the next step is getting pre-approved for a mortgage. We’ll connect you with a mortgage broker who’s lending estimate will help determine the price parameters for the search.
03 / Property Visits
The fun part! We think, at least. We’ll accompany you to a range of viewings and open houses to consider your options.
04 / Negotiations
Met your match? Now’s the time to make an offer. We’ll advise and negotiate between you and the Seller’s agent until we’ve reached an agreement.
05 / Review
Call in the inspectors. We’ll help you unearth any skeletons in the closets (or not, we hope) during the limited window to review the property.
06 / Contract & Deposit
Sign (the contract), seal (the deal), and deliver (the down payment). This step involves lots of legal, but we’ll make sure it’s not overwhelming.
07 / Complete Loan Application
The bank completes your loan application. Then, you submit that over to your chosen lender. Lastly, the bank gives us the green light to close.
08 / Final Walk Through
A kind of ‘speak now or forever hold your peace’ situation – but better. Confirm your property is in working order with all final inspections complete.
09 / Closing
When all conditions are met, the closing is our final step. Documents are signed, payment exchanged, and then you get the keys to your brand new digs.
Here's what past
have to say about
"617 Living made everything about our home search experience easy and stress-free. They provided us with all the necessary contacts and connections we needed to assure a smooth closing. Thanks to 617 Living we are now happy homeowners!"
"We had a great experience with the 617 Living Team at Compass! They made our search a conversation rather than a pure sales pitch and were extremely helpful in narrowing down our options to places that really fit what we were looking for. Highly recommended."
"Working with 617 Living was a pleasure! Having moved to Boston over the last year, I have never experienced a housing market like this one! I was extremely overwhelmed. However, when I started working with 617 Living, I immediately felt at ease. They took the time to explain things to me, described their own experiences, advocated for me, and I felt like they had my best interest in mind, not just trying to get a deal done. The team was prompt and brought things I would never have thought of to my attention. I have recommended them to all my friends and will continue to do so moving forward!"
