YES. For most of us, purchasing a home is the biggest financial transaction we ever make. At Hardin Realty, we believe in educating our clients so they always make informed decisions, while we streamline the process and focus on closing escrow on time.
Brokerage fees vary and are not set by any regulatory agency. When purchasing, our commission is 1% - 3% of the purchase price, typically paid for by the seller. Rates to list your property for sale are 4.5% - 6%.
Hardin Realty is a full service brokerage with a team of hardworking and competent agents, ready to assist homebuyers through this process while always maintaining clear, proactive communication.

The first step of buying your property is to figure out how much house you can comfortably afford. Work with your preferred lender or ask us for a recommendation, as we have working partnerships with reputable local loan officers who can assist you in getting your pre-approval letter.
Start With a Showing
Now that you have your pre-approval letter, we'll show you all of the newest listings online so you can select your favorites and fine tune your preferences. Then, we will arrange to visit the homes you select, together and in-person, to find the right home for you.
Make an Offer
Once you’ve narrowed down your list and have a clear favorite, collaborate with us to make an offer on a home. This entails negotiating your preferred terms, and specifying the terms of the sale.
Schedule Home Inspection
As soon your offer is accepted, our first step is to schedule your home inspection. You or your agent can be present for this inspection. Costs range from $250-1000 depending on the size of your property and scope of work.
Meet Contract Deadlines
When your offer is accepted, you have three days to pay the Earnest Money Deposit. After that, the clock is ticking, and your Hardin Realty agent will keep you informed so you’re equipped with all of the information you need to make smart decisions.
As the buyer, you'll typically choose the title company for your title search and the closing (your Hardin Realty agent can recommend reliable title companies). As soon as you close, title and monies will be transferred appropriately in accordance with the escrow instructions.
