Buyer's Guide


Owning your own home is the American Dream. And MAINGATE will help you every step of the way.

While every transaction is unique, experience has taught us that the buying process involves common stages for all home buyers. To help you understand that process and to help you get the most out of every day and every dollar, here is a Home Buyer's Guide that will provide an overview of what you can expect between now and closing.

We hope you enjoy this basic tour. And if you have any questions along the way, your MAINGATE associate will gladly get you the answers and information that you need. After all, transforming homeownership dreams into reality is what we do... everyday.
