Buying a home can be an overwhelming process. However, it is our belief that with the right agent by your side, buying a home can be a satisfying and successful experience.
By tapping our wealth of local knowledge, contacts, and resources, our buyers are better positioned to find and secure the home of their choice on the best possible terms and price. In many cases, our local and prominent presence in the industry has given our buyers additional advantages. For example, in some cases, we can tap our network and find “off-market” properties for our clients. In other cases, our credibility and track record with our colleagues have helped our clients win the property of their choice in competitive situations. We provide the following services for our buyer clients:
Help you understand what you’re looking for - We make sure you have a firm grasp on what you’re looking for and also try to challenge your thinking. We want you to understand also how your housing needs may change over time.
Help walk you through the process - Out of the gate, we walk you through the process, explain our role, and also address the hard questions of agency and dual agency upfront. We like to give our clients a copy of a blank sales contract in our first meeting so that they can familiarize themselves with the key terms. Too many buyers see the contract the first time the night they are writing an offer with their agent.
Help you with the finances - We have a strong business background and a network of local lenders who can help you get the best possible loan and rate to suit your needs. We like to think outside the box and when necessary, can come up with creative ways to finance a property (seller financing, for example).
Prepare you for the purchase - We educate you so that when you find your ideal property, you’re ready to move quickly. Sometimes, this can mean the difference between getting and not getting the home of your choice, and in some cases, can save you money.
Make efficient use of your time - We preview homes for you and eliminate ones that won’t work, thereby making the best use of your time. We also use technology to make your life easier.
Listen to your feedback/ Tell you the good and the bad - You’d be amazed how many times we hear clients complain that their old buyer’s agent kept showing them homes that they didn’t want to see. We are also here to tell you about the benefits and drawbacks of potential properties.
Manage the post-ratification process - Once you have a ratified contract, we walk you through and help coordinate all the steps that happen after ratification and before settlement. Typically, these include inspections (home, termite, radon, pool, etc.), obtaining estimates, negotiating and managing repairs, coordinating appraisals, securing final loan commitment, document review (i.e. condo or homeowner association documents), final walk-throughs, etc.
Provide You With Resources - We have a network of contractors and service providers to help you have a smooth closing, do your due diligence and maintain/ improve your new home.
