Move smoothly into your new life.
Buy with the best
If you are wanting to know more about the buying process. It’s important to us as your agent that you have the best experience through every phase of the buying process and be excited but stress free when it comes time to move into your new home.
Where to Begin?
One important piece that we have our clients start with, before we view any properties, is to get your lending in place. There is nothing worse than finding the house of your dreams first, only to discover that you can’t afford it. It is a heartbreak and I want to avoid that by setting our clients up for success from the start. There are several great options for lenders and we can discuss these more once we connect, at which time we will guide you through what to expect when working with a lender and the potential documents needed.
Creating the Perfect Home
Knowing what your affordable price range turns out to be, will help us to create the road map. It will be a blend of what neighborhoods you prefer vs. which you can actually afford, the type of housing that appeals to you whether that be single family, townhouse or condominium. As well as size, 2 bedrooms or 3, 1 bath or 2, finished out basement or not, upgraded or fixer upper, large yard or none, newer build or old. There are many options and we will help you navigate the choices by asking you the right questions.
Time to View
Once we have a clear picture, then it is time to start looking. Together we will decide the properties that fit the criteria, set our appointments, view the houses and narrow down our list. Sometimes you will know as soon as you step into your first house. Sometimes it might take a while to find that one that speaks to you that says, “I am home”. Once you find it, now it is time write up our offer.
As your certified negotiations experts, we will help craft the right offer based off my interactions with the listing agent, listening for what is most important to the seller and then sitting down with you to design the strongest offer that keeps you protected while putting your best foot forward. Once your offer is accepted, our job is to ensure that all timelines are met.
Communication is key. We will continue to connect with your lender, escrow/title and listing agent for the seller and above all, for you. Consistent regular updates are essential and we are available for your questions and concerns throughout the process. We see ourselves not only your agent, but your point of reference for any and all questions relating to real estate. You should feel heard; this is your largest investment and you want someone you know is in your corner.
