So you're thinking of buying a home and you just don't know where to start? Whether it is here in Lake of the Ozarks, MO or anywhere, your home purchase can be most likely one of the biggest investments of your life. You need an experienced, professional real estate agent that can walk you through each and every phase of the purchasing process to ensure that your best interests are protected. Once you find that dream home, your agent will guide you with tips and strategies to help you get that offer accepted. After you and the seller come to an agreement on terms, things are underway! Inspections get set and repairs get negotiated. You will meet with your lender to get any final details taken care of and  the appraisal gets ordered. Then you wait for that final approval. An experienced agent will make sure all the contractual deadlines are met, keeping your earnest money safe and getting you to that closing table. There are so many more parts to the whole transaction and the buying experience, that is very important to have an experienced agent represent you.
