49 Ways Slocum Home Team Guides You to Your Dream Home!

OUR 8 STEP BUYING PROCESS

Navigate The Home Buying Process
with Confidence

From start to finish, our step-by-step guide, expert guidance, and local market knowledge
 will take you from feeling overwhelmed to feeling in control and confident in your home
buying journey.

01

Meet in person & create a 
wishlist

Let’s get to know each other! Once you’re ready to
work with our team, we’ll meet together for a Buyer
Consultation to focus your search and determine what
you want and need in a home.

02

Pre-qualification

We’ll introduce you to one of our mortgage partners,
who can help you determine your buying price range
with confidence. Be prepared to dig into paperwork
during this part of the process such as pay stubs,
W2’s, and tax returns. The lender will do a full review
and then tell you what you will be able to borrow in
order to purchase a home. This is a vital step in the
home buying process!

03

Listing alerts sent to you 
based on your criteria

Our agents get to know you — Need to move for a job?
Want a shorter commute? Getting married? Having a baby?
Need to upgrade or downsize? At this stage in the process,
we’ll send you notifications about the listings that you’re
most likely to be excited about. Be sure to let us know
if one (or more) jumps out at you so that we can schedule
viewings and be there with you every step of the way.


04

Schedule viewings & attend open houses

Here’s where the buying process gets really fun! We’ll
go to local open houses together and schedule
viewings of the homes that you’ve loved from our
listing alerts. We’ll talk about how the budget will work
and make sure that we find you the perfect home.


05

Find the perfect home & write an offer

When you’re ready to make an offer, your agent will
present a written offer to the seller. And while everyone
loves getting their offer accepted right away, the seller
could come back to us with a counteroffer, or reject
your initial offer all together. We’re happy to walk you
through each of these possibilities and exactly how to
handle them. Once the offer is accepted, it’s time to
get your financing in order and move forward to the next step!

06

Acceptance, Inspection & 
Appraisal

The sellers accepted your offer, and the home is going
through inspection and appraisal. The appraisal
guarantees that the price of the property matches the
condition of the property while the inspection makes
sure that everything in the home is functioning
properly and there are no major issues inside. These
are the last steps before the shiny keys to your home
are placed in your hand... for good!

07

Time to close & get the keys

Get excited because it’s time to close on your home!
This process includes going through all of the final
paperwork and signing your name (a lot!). Don't forget
to bring all of the paperwork you’ve collected along the
way, your driver's license and your down payment.

08

Celebrate!

Congratulations, you did it! The process of buying a
home can be overwhelming, but with the help of the
Slocum Home Team, you've navigated it with ease and
confidence.

Naysha Berrios Zillow Review

Jan went above and beyond our long difficult process. She of course had no control over the obstacles that came along our journey, but her patience and dedication did not go unnoticed. She helped with anything she could as it was hard for us to deal with certain issues from a 16 hour distance from the property. She even helped a loved one with some warm soup while sick. No words can explain how grateful we are for her dedication, love and patience. The end goal was selling and she got us there. Thank you always, Jan!!!! 

Kyle Baxter Zillow Review

Terri was awesome in helping us buy our first home. Terri was extremely knowledgeable on what to look for in homes that could be concerns in the future as a home owner and what can be you dream home aswell. Highly recommend.

Such a great experience working with Dennis Warburton! So helpful and always available for questions! My house at 6 Springwood Street in Cranston, RI sold in no time! I will be recommending Slocum to all! 

Richard Chandler Google Review

Anthony sold my condo like a pro! With the association raising costs, and APR going up, he still pushed forward until a buyer was found. Definitely would recommend this team! 

Preston Kelley Google/Zillow Review

I really enjoyed working with Terri. She really understood what I was looking for and suggested other ideas. Terri made the process easy, and I am very grateful that i was able to work with Terri and everyone that was involved.
