Complete Beginner's Guide to a Home Purchase
A step-by-step, guided learning experience to home ownership by Scott Buehler
Confused? Anxious? Just not sure where to begin? You are in the right place with this complete beginner's guide to home purchasing. Welcome to the Scott Buehler home loan experience, where it is my goal to educate, inform, problem solve, answer questions and so much more as your Senior Mortgage Consultant and Loan Officer.
The goal of this website section is to help you understand the home loan process, provide insights into mortgage guidelines we must follow and go way beyond the typical call of duty to hopefully establish a long-lasting relationship where I'm trusted to handle home loans for you, family, extended family, neighbors and friends.
This Complete Beginner's Guide to a Home Purchase was written to be followed step-by-step for those newer to home loans, but please feel free to jump around to quickly find the answers you are looking for.
Let us begin, shall we? Below, you will find numbered tabs that will take you to the home purchase guide section that interests you. Once you click, look for a navigation section on the right (desktop, tablets) or bottom (mobile) to find your way around.
Above is an exact digital copy of my business card that is handed out by my business partners and myself. Feel free to text, email or call any day of the week from 9AM-9PM MST. Midnight service is available for those unavailable during normal business hours. I'm here to help!
