Pre-Qualification Process

Upon request I will suggest a lender that would be most suitable for your needs. Working with our lenders will guarantee you search for and find a home in the price range that is best for you. You get full access to my private on-line network of properties that fall in your price range. I notify you as new listings become available.

 

Organize Home Showings and Provide Information on Target Markets

You can access properties on-line at the same time real estate professionals do. Together we will select the right homes to view at a time that is most convenient for all. When there are changes to your search criteria or changes to one of the listings, you receive immediate e-mail notification. You will be shown the homes as soon as they come on to the market.

With professional guidance, your offer is correct and all conditions you require are included. If you need it, you will get the time to consult with banks, appraisers, building inspectors, and family - without any pressure from me. With these conditions written in for your protection, you can move quickly and confidently to secure the home you desire.

 

Real Estate Professional Represents You During The Presentation Of Offer

Most people list their homes expecting to negotiate. Usually room for negotiation is available. Knowing a property's selling time on the market and neighborhood prices is valuable when negotiating. I can assist you through the entire buyer experience making sure you have all the information at hand to make the right decisions. You get the best purchase price for your new home.

 

Organize Financing and Building Inspection

Always make sure what you think you are buying is indeed the property you are buying. As odd as this sounds, feeling comfortable with your purchase is a vital part of the home buying experience. Feeling comfortable has to do with securing the right financing. The right financing can save you thousands of dollars over the life of your mortgage.

The other factor contributing to your comfort is hiring a professional home inspector. Having the right professional is the way to gain peace of mind and guard your pocket book. A proper inspection will cover all areas of the house both structurally and mechanically and give you an objective view of the property. A qualified home inspector will provide you with a written report indicating areas of concern.

 

Assist and Coordinate Physical Moves

Through our strategic alliances, I offer you reliable and professional contacts with local lawyers, movers, mortgage brokers, appraisers, builders, and other skilled experts to help you find and secure the new property for your family. As part of your transition into a new home, I will coordinate all required services. That makes your part a whole lot easier.

Buying Real Estate

 

Let me help you every step of the way. When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.

 

 

While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.

 

I am always familiar with the current homes on the market, and I know neighborhood values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.

 

Your First Step

 

Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."



 

Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.

 

Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.

 

Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification

 

Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.

 

Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.

 

I Will Find The Right Home For You

 

Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system to locate them.

 

I have the best possible resources and communication systems available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even search my listings here at my website.

 

I Will Help You Every Step Of The Way

 

I will help you complete your financing and inspections, and close on the transaction. My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.
