Understanding the Home Buying Process

Buying a home is no small task. Besides being the largest financial transaction, you may ever undertake, it is also the most complex. Ensuring the process is comfortable and stress-free starts with choosing a knowledgeable and easy to use realty company. At Epps Realty, our experienced agents and dedicated staff combine to make it easy to choose and buy your desired home.

Epps Realty will expertly tailor a client’s lifestyle, budget, and personal preferences into a custom-fitted home buying experience. Our process for guiding buyers from confused to confident to closed is unparalleled. Get to know the Epps Home Buying Experience:

Getting to Know You

Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or a repeat buyer, our Epps Realty agents will get to know you and pair your personality and needs with our extensive knowledge of North Texas. Our agents then consider real estate values, taxes, utility and maintenance costs, municipal services and facilities, and proposed zoning changes to ensure that you get the house you want at the right price.


Before the search begins, pre-approval for a loan is a must. Epps Realty agents can recommend a broker who will work out your loan and get you financially set for the buying process.

Your Home Search

Our knowledge of the local landscape and market combined with our intuitive nature and over 25 years servicing the DFW Metroplex, means the path to your dream home will be a short, downhill walk. Our research time is your relax time. However, if you see a home you like, let us know and we can set up a showing.

Touring a Property

After working together with your Epps agent to assemble a list of the top homes to visit, your agent will schedule showings. This is the most exciting part, but be sure to take personal notes listing the home’s positive and negative qualities. It’s amazing how quickly these details can be forgotten, once you start seeing multiple homes. If you find a few houses you like, return for a second or third showing during a different time of day. This extra effort will be worth it as you will be able to experience the home and neighborhood better, especially when making such a long-term investment.

Making an Offer

Once you find the home you want, you will work with your Epps real estate agent to make an offer. With our experience, we can help you make an offer that strategically competes with other potential buyers and still works in your favor. Homes in North Texas are in high demand, but with our help we can make your offer stand out.


Once we find your dream home and successfully negotiate with the seller and their agent, then we get to contract. Once your contract is accepted, you will proceed through a number of critical stages which include inspections, the appraisal, and final loan commitment. Your Epps Realty agent will work with you at every step to ensure all of the details are taken care of.


If everything goes as planned, you will then be ready for settlement. You will have selected a title company by this point, and should plan to spend at least an hour or more at the settlement table reviewing all documents, signing, and then finally owning your dream home!
