When it comes time to buy a home, an experienced and detailed-orientated Broker is needed to watch out for your best interests and help protect your investment. Educating clients about the buying process is very important. Every client’s goals, needs, and desires are unique to them. This is the reason I create a customized plan to help each one of my clients reach their end goal. Finding the right home, in the right neighborhood, at a cost that fits your budget, is not an easy job.
I am a licensed experienced Broker with specialized skills. Listed here are the many benefits you receive when working with me:
- I know the local market and can focus on the areas in which you have the greatest possibility of finding a home in your desired price range.
- I will organize, coordinate, and provide detailed information about every potential opportunity.
- I will schedule a home tour to view the identified properties. I will preview homes with you, and help you determine which homes best fit your needs. Homes that don’t meet your specific needs will be removed.
- I have access to the multiple listing service (MLS), a service that provides access to thousands of homes for sale.
- I will supply information and make appointments to see almost any property listed for sale. I know how to get detailed information, or an appointment, even if the house is not listed with a Windermere agent.
- When you find the right home to buy, I will guide you through the negotiation process, the legal documents, and the details that follow.
Tips for Buyers
The key to finding the right home is organization. Here are some tips to help you get started.
- Before you start house-hunting, decide how much house you can afford. I will refer you to a loan officer to pre-qualify you. To see how much home you are able to afford, use our mortgage calculator section.
- Prioritize what is most important and what is least important in a home. Make a list of everything you want in a home. We will go over your list so I know exactly what you desire.
- Make notes as you look at the home. Try to imagine everyday living. Think about where you will have your morning coffee or where you will put your car keys after work.
- When you do choose a home, make sure it is structurally sound. I will provide you to a list of home inspectors from which to choose. The inspector will look for large repairs that are needed and report on the condition of the home.
- Once you’ve found the home you want to buy, together we’ll complete a purchase and sale agreement. This is the contract in which the seller and the buyer outline the details of the property transfer.
- A closing date is jointly agreed-upon during the negotiation stage of the transaction. Before closing, the closing agent (usually an escrow or title company or attorney) will complete a thorough settlement statement for both buyer and seller.
