Time to go Shopping

Once the preparations are out of the way, it is time to find the right property for you.

Take a Drive

Get to know the neighborhoods that interest you. Drive around and get a feel for what’s in the area – homes, schools, shopping and business districts, etc. Use our website to search in the communities that may interest you to start getting a sense of the properties available in those areas.

Consider Your Options.

You might not find a house that has all the features you want, but look for properties that check the biggest boxes. Of course, don’t be afraid to compromise; for example, a smaller backyard might not be such a deal breaker if the house is near a large park.

Narrow Your Search

Select a few properties that interest you the most and let us make appointments to show them to you. Whether you’re interested in homes that are move-in-ready or fixer uppers, viewing several properties will give you a better feel for which is the right one for you. We can also help you understand the potential long term resale value of the properties you are considering.

Once you find a property on which you may want to make an offer, we can obtain the Seller’s Disclosure statement for you. The Seller’s Disclosure is a signed statement required by Michigan law that discloses to potential buyers known defects that affect the property. Unless an exception applies, if a seller does not provide the Seller’s Disclosure, you as the buyer may be able to cancel an otherwise binding purchase agreement if you discover a defect the seller knew about but didn’t disclose.
