Worried about the home buying process and don't know where to start? You're up early this morning, scrolling through home listings online. You’ve spent hours looking for the perfect home for you and your family. You might be wondering if there’s an easier way to start your home buying process. And may be thinking the home of your dreams doesn't seem so attainable anymore.   But what if we told you that there was a way to make things easier?   That's where an OSC comes in. They make the whole process easy and guide you through every step.  Want to learn more? Read on to find out!  

What Is an OSC and What Do They Do?

  An OSC, or Online Sales Consultant, is a professional who helps buyers with their home search.   Think of them as your first point of contact when on the hunt for your next home purchase. An OSC has your back, from finding the right community to the right floor plan and homesite availability.   They are the builder's experts and will help you make an informed decision on which type of home is right for you and your family.    3 Ways an OSC Makes Your Home Search Easier   When you buy a house, there are a lot of moving parts. With an OSC, the beginning of the process is a lot easier and eliminates the pain of endless online searching (which is where 100% of people start their home buying search).  

Choosing the Right Type of Home or Community

  As you search online for the perfect home, there are several things to consider regarding the type of home that fits your needs.   Your OSC will gather preliminary information to get to know you and what type of home best fits your lifestyle. For example, you may be a bachelor looking for a small one-story home with room for a porch to entertain guests. If you’re planning to start or grow a family, you might consider a two-story home with a large backyard for the children.   When it comes to communities, your OSC can search for ones that offer certain amenities that cater to your lifestyle, such as pools, golf courses, and more.   This helpful information can cut down on the time it takes to get you from searching to buying and from buying to living in your perfect home.  

Homesite Availability and Floor Plans

  Though you may be able to find some information online regarding lot availability and floor plans, OSCs work hard to provide you with the most up-to-date information.   An OSC is at the front of the organization. They know the ins and outs of what lots are available, which ones have already begun building, and what floor plans are available for each one. For example, if you need to move quickly due to a life change, an OSC can help look for Quick-Move-In homes being built within the timeframe you discussed during your correspondence.   This way, you can be confident that you're making the best decisions for yourself and your family.  

Easy Transition from Searching to Buying

  Who has the time to drive around looking for their perfect home?   With an OSC, you can get pictures, videos, and updates before ever viewing options in person. They also have information on upcoming communities that may fit your needs in the future if you have a specific timeframe to move.   After reviewing and narrowing down a few options that meet your needs, they can easily set you up with someone onsite to get an in-person view without spending time driving to every potential option.    Now that your search is done and you have several options meeting your requirements and lifestyle, you can take a breath and move on to locking in your dream home.    If you're ready to start your home search, contact us today. We would be more than happy to put you in touch with one of our expert Online Sales Consultants.
