Buying a Home

Interested in
Buying Real Estate?

The process of buying a home usually starts online. With Zillow, Redfin, Trulia and Realtor.com at our fingertips, we have access to viewing hundreds of houses throughout Monterey County. This is an exciting time, as you thumb through property descriptions and photos, trying to figure out your likes and dislikes.

Visiting open houses during the weekends are usually next on the agenda. Although, in today’s competitive market, it’s imperative that you take action before your favorite house is no longer available. With that said, as a licensed Real Estate Agent, I have the privilege of pre-scheduling private showings on your behalf. 

So why wait? Let’s start visiting home’s today.

The Real Estate Buying Process

The process of buying real estate includes many details. Here are just a few of the details I will personally walk you through:

Application for Loan Approval.
(With Licensed Loan Officer)

Finding you the Perfect Home.

Strategizing & Submitting an Offer(s).

Negotiating the Best Deal.

Coordinating Inspections and helping you identify any property issues.

And so much more!!!

Do I need to get Pre-Qualified for a Home Loan?

The answer is, yes.

This is absolutely the first step you should take, unless you’re planning to buy with cash. A mortgage lender will help you identify whether you currently qualify for a home loan, or what improvements you need to make in order to do so. 

The qualification process includes many factors, such as; your current income, work history, credit rating, and debts, just to name a few…

By the way, not all lenders are created equal. I have found that many lenders do not operate under the same rules. So finding the right lender for your specific needs is an important factor.

My girlfriend and I were in a very tough situation. Her apartment was changing owners and she was being evicted. We had... discussed purchasing a home but didn't know what the first step would be. We found Eddie and the reviews don't lie! He is the best realtor for first time buyers. Eddie was with us every step of the way and took the time to educate us on how the process should go. Our family was stressed since we had only a few months before we needed a new place to live. Eddie's overall demeanor and customer service put our minds at ease and we are so happy with the house we live in. If anyone I know needs a real estate agent I won't hesitate to say Eddie is the go-to guy!read more

This review is long overdue, mostly because we're not the people who usually leave any type of reviews, positive or... negative, anywhere.But Eddie's help had such an incredible positive impact in me and my wife's life... I just had to write about this experience and his awesome work.We are a young couple who were looking to purchase our first small home. We are not loaded in cash nor had the easiest transaction, and due to that we struggled to find a realtor who would take two 20 year olds serious with a home transaction. Until we started working with Eddie. To make a long story short, with his help we found the perfect home for us to start building a family and with the first option we had! I know it's not a common story and times are very hard.This is why having a good relationship with your realtor is key into making everything as smoothly as possible...read more

Eddie is great at what he does! It was our first time buying a home and Eddie made the experience fun and seamless! It... was a breeze to work with him as he was super responsive, thorough, easy to talk to, and quick with the paperwork! I would definitely recommend him and look forward to working with him again. When it is time to sell my house, my first call will be to him! Thanks Eddie for all your hard work!read more

Working with Eddie Guajardo was absolutely the best choice I ever made. He is very professional, knowledgeable, and... experienced. He helped me purchase a home in a location that I really wanted to live in during this crazy competitive housing market. He made the whole process of buying a house very easy, always checking on me and explaining things thoroughly. Eddie was always there to answer questions, no matter what day or time. In addition, he sent me helpful reminders about the documents that had to be signed and made sure we stayed on schedule for an easy escrow. He made the whole process fast and stress free. I highly recommend Eddie for anyone looking for a friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable realtor.read more

Eddie G sold our house in minimal time with all the returns we hoped and more. It was our first time selling a home... and we entered the process with little experience, few resources and a need to close the transaction and move quickly. Eddie educated, and encouraged us throughout the process and even helped with heavy lifting in clearing out stuff that wasn't staying or going with us. The main bath was worn but serviceable and he had a contractor paint it to increase the appeal. He kept us current with updates and information. Going into and out of escrow was fast and went without a hitch. We heartily endorse his service and encourage all to call him when looking to sell a home, buy a home or just talk about current events in Monterey County.read more

If I could give eddie more than 5 stars I totally would! My husband and I bought our very 1st home about a week ago and... it was the easiest process ever! I've heard horror stories and prayed that we would not have the same experience. Eddie was very patient with us ....very professional and very honest with us. If he felt like something wasnt right he would mention it and give us other options. He always called to check up on us which is one thing I really liked about him. He didnt just call to see how the paperwork was going...he would just call to see how we were doing were doing just in general. It showed us that he actually cares about his clients and not just in it for the paycheck. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who is either selling or buying a house. I know we will be contacting him again later on down the road when or if we decide to move! He does such a great job! Thanks again eddie!!!read more

Eddie was absolutely AWESOME and I highly recommend him!!! He has a genuine good heart, is humble, and has a likable... personality. He was always on top of everything throughout the entire process and was always willing to go out of his way to expedite it, to the point that he was doing some of the other realtor's job just so things kept rolling with the purchase of our new home. I loved the fact that he was honest, reassuring, and always kept us on the loop with what was going on. Some other realtors try to sugar coat things and/or tell "white lies" so that the buyers/sellers can just be at ease, but Eddie was always honest and my husband and I really appreciated that. Also, we were always able to get a hold of him, and if we would get his voicemail we would get a call back soon after, which was great! Even after everything had gone through, he came and checked on us at the newly purchased property to make sure that we had the keys to our house, that the sellers were out, and that we were happy and had everything we needed. So if you are looking for someone reliable, dependable, who works hard, and who always has his clients best interest in mind, look no further because he's the realtor for you!!!!read more

With that said, I would personally like to connect you with a trusted lender that can guide you through the home loan process.
