Congratulations, you’re a homeowner!
The end of the homebuying process is just the kickoff to your homeownership journey. And, as new homeowner Amaya Gunasekera finds, the excitement comes along with some new questions—and new worries. If you are, or soon will be, a new homeowner, you’ll find wisdom, reassurance, and sharp advice in this episode to get you ready for life under your very own roof.
Let’s close the deal
The closing process can feel complex and overwhelming. With so many important details to manage, many people choose to hire an attorney to counsel them through the legal process, and some states require it. For 29-year-old homebuyer Omar George, the closing process was frustrating and anything but smooth. He talks with Beginner to Buyer host Nadeska Alexis about his experience with closing on his first home—an apartment in Chicago.
Offer accepted! Now what?
Congratulations, your offer was accepted! But there are still a few steps to take before you get those keys in hand. In this episode, host Nadeska Alexis talks with prospective buyers and a real estate expert to discuss what to expect when your offer is accepted, and what comes next.
Making the offer!
Falling in love with your dream house feels wonderful—until you start to feel anxious about making an offer. How much should you offer? What about contingencies? How soon do you need to act? In this episode, host Nadeska Alexis talks with a woman who is feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of putting in an offer on a house in a hot real estate market. Nadeska gets many of their questions answered when she sits down later with real estate expert Matt Laricy.
Finding your dream home
Prequalified for your mortgage and signed with a real estate agent? You’re ready for the fun (and hard!) part: finding your dream home. In this episode, host Nadeska Alexis sits down with a recent homebuyer who discusses her complicated path to finding the right home—and then she brings in television personalities Drew and Jonathan Scott to offer an expert perspective on how to identify the kind of home that will fit both your short- and long-term lifestyle goals.
Signing with an agent
Having the right team of trusted advisers along with you on your homebuying journey is key. In this episode, host Nadeska Alexis chats with a potential first-time homebuyer who’s currently trying to select a real estate agent.
