“Helping you get home!"
Home Buying 101
There are many things to consider when buying a new home. Should you look at resales? New construction? What can you afford? How can you get pre-approved for a mortgage? Where do you begin? At Antra Realty Group, we can help you with all of that. While buying a home is likely a stressful time for most, it should also be an exciting time. We work hand in hand with lenders, Realtors®, builders, and closing agents to ensure your buying process is as smooth as it can be from start to finish.
Here are a few tips to help you get started
1. Obtain a pre-approval letter for your mortgage. If you don’t know of a lender, we can refer you to one of our preferred partners.
2. Begin your home search by contacting your Antra Realty Group agent to preview some homes in person.
3. Once you’ve found the right property, we’ll submit an offer on your behalf and work to secure a contract.
4. Once under contract, we’ll assist you in your due diligence process and keep you on track toward closing.
5. Once you’ve cleared your due diligence period and your loan is fully approved, we’ll get closing scheduled and get you across the finish line.
Selling your home
People sell their homes for many reasons. Sometimes it’s a financial decision. Sometimes it’s an emotional decision. Whatever the reason, you’ll want an industry professional to guide you through the process to make it as seamless as possible. At Antra Realty Group, we’ll advise you on things like preparing your home for sale, setting the right price, marketing your home, scheduling showings, negotiating offers, and all of the “behind the scenes” things that most people don’t even know take place.

WHAT TO KNOW
7 Reasons to Work With a REALTOR®
REALTORS® aren’t just agents. They’re professional members of the National Association of REALTORS® and subscribe to its strict code of ethics. This is the REALTOR® difference for home buyers:
1. An expert guide.
Selling a home usually requires dozens of forms, reports, disclosures, and other technical documents. A knowledgeable expert will help you prepare the best deal, and avoid delays or costly mistakes. Also, there’s a lot of jargon involved, so you want to work with a professional who can speak the language.
2. Objective information and opinions.
REALTORS® can provide local information on utilities, zoning, schools, and more. They also have objective information about each property. REALTORs® can use that data to help you determine if the property has what you need.
3. Property marketing power.
Property doesn’t sell due to advertising alone. A large share of real estate sales comes as the result of a practitioner’s contacts with previous clients, friends, and family. When a property is marketed by a REALTOR®, you do not have to allow strangers into your home. Your REALTOR® will generally prescreen and accompany qualified prospects through your property.
4. Negotiation knowledge.
There are many factors up for discussion in a deal. A REALTOR® will look at every angle from your perspective, including crafting a purchase agreement that allows you the flexibility you need to take that next step.
5. Up-to-date experience.
Most people sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each sale. Even if you’ve done it before, laws and regulations change. REALTORS® handle hundreds of transactions over the course of their career.
6. Your rock during emotional moments.
A home is so much more than four walls and a roof. And for most people, property represents the biggest purchase they’ll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you stay focused on the issues most important to you.
7. Ethical treatment.
Every REALTOR® must adhere to a strict code of ethics, which is based on professionalism and protection of the public. As a REALTOR®’s client, you can expect honest and ethical treatment in all transaction-related matters.
