Buying a home in Delaware
Get in touch with the right agent
While you can certainly get information on property listings on your own, you’ll fare much better with the guidance of a professional– one who works for you, the buyer, instead of for the seller.
Knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated real estate agents can help fast-track your home search by...
Pre-screening property for you
Connecting you with the best financing and legal support
Guiding you through the tax implications of your purchase
Helping you avoid homebuying hazards and mistakes
Get to know the area
Visit the neighborhood you’re keen on, whether based on your agent’s advice or your own research. Take the time to talk to residents and owners of local establishments, check out the neighborhood amenities, and simply get a real-world feel of the place. Internet listings and brochures can only say so much about a place, after all.
Review the best options on your shortlist. When it comes to property features, set your priorities. Is acreage more important to you than how far the home is set from the property entrance? Can you do without cathedral ceilings for an additional floor you can transform as you please? It pays to have an organized checklist of must-have, nice-to-have, and over-the-top luxury features to guide your decision-making.
Make an offer
Once you’ve decided on a home, work with your agent to create a strong offer letter – one that gives you the advantage over other interested buyers. Make sure you specify inspection and mortgage contingencies.
Be ready to receive counter-offers and even direct rejections, especially if you’re eyeing a popular or highly desired property. If this happens, we’ll help you with the next steps. We can either restructure your offer, submit a counter-offer, or if rejected, move on with other property options.
