Buying a home is a big investment and it can be a stressful process at times. From financing, to negotiating, to closing, there are a lot of moving parts that can leave homebuyers feeling pressured or overwhelmed.
An experienced market expert can help calmly guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. By working with a professional agent who knows the ins and outs of the real estate industry, you’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience. As full time agents Tom and I have been representing buyers since 1988. Our expertise will ensure you’ll find the right home at the best possible terms and we’ll be there for you throughout the process.
Getting pre-approved by a lender
You’ve decided it’s time to purchase a home so the next step is to speak to a lender to get pre approved. The lender will discuss your financing options, what monthly payment you can afford, down payment requirements, and closing costs. If you need the name of a lender, let us know.
Choosing a home
For most buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. Tom and I will assist you in this process by locating homes that fit your criteria and offering objective information about each property. We will also discuss neighborhood features, local community information, location of schools, commute times, and home-specific details such as condition, improvements, and amenities.
Making an offer
Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, we will extensively research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair selling price. Tom and I will work with you to present the strongest agreement based on comparable sales, market conditions, inventory, and property condition to give you the best chance of having your agreement accepted.
Negotiating, Inspections, and Closing
Inspections, negotiations, and settlement preparations require frequent communication. Tom and I are easy to reach through email, text, or phone and we respond quickly. We are available to answer your questions, discuss your concerns, and provide you with frequent updates throughout your transaction all the way to the settlement table & beyond.
Tom and I want to be your Realtors for life and the Realtors you think of first when your friends or family have a real estate need. Send us a message and let us know how we can help.
