Analysis Paralysis

You’ve been scrolling the listings, playing with numbers, and thinking about neighborhoods and commute times for months and months. The problem is you’re stuck. It’s quite possible you have a serious case of analysis paralysis.

Hi, I’m Fawn Bertram, a realtor in Ewa Beach with Homes by Fawn and Hawaii Life Real Estate. If you can’t stop scrolling and start moving towards your first home sweet home, consider this the friendly intervention you’ve been waiting for.

Right Direction

To nudge you forward, here’s a simple breakdown of the six steps in the home buying process in Oahu, Hawaii.

Step 1: 

  • Gather docs, speak with a lender, and get pre-approved.

Step 2:

  • Locate your down payment funds.

Step 3: 

  • Begin the house hunt.

Step 4:

  • Negotiate an offer and contingencies.

Step 5: 

  • Schedule a home inspection.

Step 6: 

  • Close and Record, get the keys, and move in!

House Hunt

So many people jump straight into the house hunt — I know, it is the most fun part — but I highly recommend getting all your financials in order first.
