Lender: make sure you are prequalified before you go looking for homes
Realtor: will assist from A-Z in the home search process
Attorney: Once contract is accepted will assist with closing details.
Feel free to contact me should you need any assistance.
But most of all because you are asking this question here it tells me that you are NOT working with a Realtor. I strongly very strongly recommend to you to do so. A Realtor your Buyers agent will be you one and only source of information, guidance, education in the home buying process and he or she
will look out for you, there are so many things to watch out for, consider, check etc. etc. you truly should not do this on your own, you need an experienced advocate on y our side ..... to see the right properties, to offer the right price, Realtors will not only negotiate the price but also all other terms and
make sure that you are pre-approved by a reputable lender....
If you need a recommendation let me know...
Most Sincerely yours,
Edith YourRealtor4Life Working always in the very BEST interest of her clients
