Your Home Purchasing Journey

Your Home Purchasing Journey

The home you’ve always dreamed of is out there… I’ll help you find it!

Finding the right home in the best location for you and your family can be a challenge. I always take the time to understand what your needs and preferences are and help you find a home that will provide you with many years of happiness.

Some of the factors I take into account include:

  • Size of the home, especially the number of bedrooms
  • The home’s amenities, such as the yard, if it has a pool, etc.
  • Pros and cons of the community
  • Quality of schools in the area
  • Distance to business centers and jobs
  • Nearby shopping, dining, and entertainment
  • Much, much more!

YOUR HOME PURCHASING JOURNEY

DISCOVER

Buyer Consult

It’s important we sit down for a brief meeting to help me learn about you; your goals for your real estate investment, both short term and, something that is often overlooked, your long-term goals. Now is the time to plan for the future, especially if you are a first-time home buyer. It is also equally as important for you to learn how I work and what to expect. Let’s get together and start the journey.

IDENTIFY

Mortgage Consultation

Unless you are paying cash, I encourage you to sit down with an experienced mortgage representative to discuss your mortgage options. Too many lenders pigeonhole buyers into a single type of loan. The loan you choose needs to be in alignment with your overall goals which we review during our buyer consultation.

FIELD TRIP

On The Road

If you’re new to the area, I like to take at least part of one day to simply drive you through communities and introduce you to the area. There is so much to learn about our amazing city and all of our niches; diverse architectural designs from bungalows and craftsmans, to mid-century modern (my personal favorite) to contemporary modern, planned communities and new construction. Let’s determine what style and neighborhood is right for you! Then the search begins for the perfect home in the perfect area!

OFFER TIME

Pricing Strategy

Once you find your home, I will provide an analysis for you of the recent market activity to help you understand the values and assist you in developing a strategy for success. We factor in many elements, including the market climate (is it a buyer’s market or seller’s market), and review as many details as possible in order to make your offer the most attractive to the seller. Once accepted, there are numerous, vital timelines and details my team will orchestrate. Escrow deposits, inspections, mortgage processing, appraisals, title policies, and Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB) compliance, just to name a few!

CLOSING

Celebrate

We finally did it. Your sale is complete. The transaction is closed! And, you are still not done with me! I am your Realtor and that means more to me than only selling you a house. I am your resource for all things related to you home. Questions on your tax notice? Call me. Questions on your mortgage statement? Call me. Thinking of remodeling? Call me. Thinking of refinancing? Call me. I have advice for your property value and I have vendors. Doctors, lawyers, hairdressers, plumbers, electricians, you name it I have the “peep”. If I don’t the peep, I have a peep who knows a peep.
