Are you considering buying a home in the Fort Wayne area and aren't sure of the process?  This series will cover all of the steps from pre-approval to well after closing.   Part 1 (Finances) can be read here. Part 2 (Finding a Realtor) can be read here.   Step 3 - Looking at homes.   This is probably most people's favorite part.  9 out of 10 buyers already have a list of homes that they want to see.   The way we work is simple:  Buyers send us that list of homes they've saved online.  Most of the time we'll narrow it down to their top 4 or 5, and head out there to see them.   If one of the top 4 or 5 is the one, we'll take a loot at the next 4 or 5.  If none of those are it, we'll sit down again and figure out what the disconnect is.     A few tips for showings:     If you have young ch...
