10-Step Guide to Buying a House


For many people, it's the biggest financial transaction they'll ever make. That's why doing it right the first time is so important. Sometimes, buying a house can feel like a dizzying set of rules and regulations. Luckily, armed with the right knowledge and know-how, you can start realizing your homeowner dreams — the fast, easy, way




#1 Are you ready to become a HOMEOWNER?

Whether you’re becoming a homeowner for the first time or you’re a repeat buyer, buying a house is a financial and emotional decision that requires the experience and support of a team of reliable professionals. Feel free to contact anybody from The Roy Group, your Wichita experts and specialist in the Real Estate business.


In the maze of forms, financing, inspections, marketing, pricing and negotiating, it makes sense to work with professionals who know the community and much more. Get more information about the people behind The Roy Group, your local experts and bringing families to their new home for more than a decade.

Get a MORTGAGE Pre-approval

Most first-time buyers need to finance their home purchase, and a consultation with a mortgage lender is a crucial step in the process. Find out how much you can afford before you begin your home search. Know the people you can trust your finances and will handle your transactions with high quality and standard kind of services. Consider the value of using a local lender who is right there with you in the entire process and someone you can go and ask if anything goes wrong. Want to know more? Click here

LOOK at Homes

A quick search on NewWichitaListings.com will bring up all the MLS listings available and the latest and most up-to-date homes for sale.  Educating yourself on your local market and working with an experienced REALTOR® from The Roy Group can help you narrow your priorities and make an informed decision about which home to choose.


While no one can know for sure what will happen to housing values, if you choose to buy a home that meets your needs and priorities, you’ll be happy living in it for years to come. Let us help you in getting the great deal for you and your family. Call us now 866-676-6102!

Get Funding

The cost of financing your home purchase is usually greater than the price of the home itself (after interest, closing costs and taxes are added). Get as much information as possible regarding your mortgage options and other costs. Contact your local lender for more information, click here!

Make an Offer

While much attention is paid to the asking price of a home, a proposal to buy includes both the price and terms. In some cases, terms can represent thousands of dollars in additional value – or additional costs – for buyers. Our competitive Realtors® from The Roy Group will put you in the strongest purchasing position possible with the current market.

Get Insurance

No sensible car owner would drive without insurance, so it figures that no homeowner should be without insurance, either. Real estate insurance protects owners in the event of catastrophe. If something goes wrong, insurance can be the bargain of a lifetime. Ask The Roy Group.


The closing process, which in different parts of the country is also known as “settlement” or “escrow”, is increasingly computerized and automated. In practice, closings bring together a variety of parties who are part of the real estate transaction. We at The Roy Group works as a team and our high quality Listing and Transaction Coordinators will get you assisted for your convenience and make everything stress free for you and your family.

What's Next?

You’ve done it. You’ve looked at properties, made an offer, obtained financing and gone to closing. The home is yours. Is there any more to the home buying process? Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a repeat buyer, you’ll want to take several more steps. WELCOME HOME! SmileSmileSmile
