Buying a Home

Home Buying Program

The purchase of a home is one of the most significant and exciting decisions that most people make in their lives. The American Dream has long been associated with the right to own your home!

A Great Time to Buy

If you are looking to purchase a home, market conditions are ideal.  Economic experts consider this to be a fantastic time to purchase a home. Many people who have not been able to afford to purchase a home, now find themselves in a position where home prices are within their reach. In many cases, it is now less expensive to own a home than to rent.

Getting Started

It is common for prospective home buyers to start their home buying process with some basic research. We encourage you to use the internet to start looking at homes that are currently for sale. We may be a bit biased, but we think you will find our property search tools to be the ideal place to start looking at homes and to start identifying communities and property styles that may be of interest to you.

Sign Up For Home Alerts

Look for homes of interest virtually anywhere in the Northern California. Once you have decided on the general area and price range that meets your desires, we invite you to register for our Home Alerts Program which will allow you to save your property search criteria, save and review specific homes, and receive automated email alerts when new properties come on the market.

As you begin the home buying process, it is helpful to have the assistance of a real estate professional to serve as your personal resource. Find an Agent.
