SUGGESTION: Save yourself some time and energy. Don’t wait to call me!

2. Method of Purchase – Financing or Cash? 
Your options to purchase are dependent on your finances. I am well versed in transactions with cash buyers, loans for first time home buyers with zero cash, or jumbo loans. I can provide you with some trusted resources for your specific lending needs. When you are making a cash purchase or are pre-approved for a loan, we’ll move to step 3.

3. Find That House & Get A Move On
By now we are clear on what you want, and the method you will use to purchase, so it is time to see the desired inventory. When we come across the right property, you will know. It will feel good, and it will work with your budget.

4. Write An Offer & Get That House!
The market is competitive. To ensure your success, we will discuss how to create a winning offer utilizing price and all other terms available. Constructing a comprehensive offer is the way to win in this market.

5. Contingencies Periods & Closing
Once the seller has agreed to the purchase agreement presented in the offer a series of timelines will begin. This includes the inspection period, preliminary title review, home owners association document review, appraisal, and other such things. This part of a transaction allows for some vetting of the home and potential further negotiations may occur. I’ll keep you informed of all your options so you can make the choices as we proceed towards fulfilling your goals.

6. Make Your Move 
A few days before closing the utilities will be switched to your name, you will sign the final title and loan documents, and then the keys will be yours! By the time you close you will already have home insurance in place, and we can also discuss the increasingly popular home warranty options available to you!

FIND YOUR DREAM HOME – RIGHT HERE!

Finding and buying the ideal property can be a dream come true. There is something special about walking up to the front door on moving day, sliding in your key and entering the foyer of your beautiful new home.

However, getting to that point can be a nightmare unless you have the right real estate agent working with you throughout the buying process. As your real estate agent, I ensure that I will do two important things for you:

  • Help you buy a home that matches your requirements;
  • Make the process simple and easy.

How do I work with clients?

To begin, I take the time to learn what you really want in a home. I look at your needs and desires, and help you determine the price range within which you should shop. Then I show you properties that meet that criteria – including new listings the moment they come on the market.

As your agent, I look out for your best interests. For example, I provide you with in-depth property details of each home you view, point out desirable features you may not notice and identify potential concerns you may have overlooked.

I’m by your side every step of the way. When you find a home you want, I’ll prepare and present the offer, and negotiate skillfully on your behalf, so you get that property at the lowest price possible.
