I love helping buyers find their dream home! That’s why I work with each client individually, taking the time to understand their unique lifestyles, needs and wishes.
Buying a home can be a particularly stressful and trying experience, but it will be much smoother for consumers who relax and take their time during the search for a house.
One of the key issues that will arise during the whole process involves knowing exactly how much to pay for a property. To prepare, house-hunters should take careful notes on each property’s marketing data such as selling price, price changes, length of time the home has been on the market and a difference in list and sale price. This will enable the potential buyer to get a better feel for what is a good deal and what is not.
Although looking at a number of houses is a good idea, buyers should be ready to seize the perfect home when they see it – even if it is just the first or second one that they encounter. For buyers who have their doubts, however, revisiting the property several times can ease the jitters, as can a thorough and professional inspection of the entire property.
In addition, making the transaction contingent upon a property appraisal that matches the purchase price can greatly help buyers avoid paying too much for a home. Home-seekers should also keep in close contact with their agent, as this will also make the process less stressful.
Finally, buyers should have high expectations at the start, but be ready to make compromises eventually. There is no such thing as the “perfect home.” However, with a little give and take, buyers should be able to find a house that comes close to meeting all of their needs and desires.
As your buyer representative I will appraise your criteria for a house and neighborhood, then search for properties that fit those specifications. I will set appointments for showings and monitor the market as new listings become available.
Being prequalified for a loan determines how much house you can afford. It also allows you to move more swiftly when you find the right house, especially when you aren’t the only interested buyer.
There may be other considerations besides price that are equally important in structuring a purchase offer. The terms and conditions of the offer, amount of deposit and possession date are likely to be factors when an offer is made. I will help in your preparation of a purchase offer
When a purchase offer is made, the sellers may be concerned with certain aspects, including the ability of the purchasers to fulfill their agreement, the terms and conditions of the offer, the breakdown of closing costs between buyer and seller and even the motivations and lifestyle of the prospective new owners! As your buyer representative I will help structure a negotiating strategy that will create the desired result, a new home.
I believe you can get the home you want. And choosing the right Buyer’s Agent is a very important step in achieving that goal. After-all, it is your Buyer’s Agent that will be negotiating for you on your purchase offer, and your Buyer’s Agent will be representing your interests and goals. This choice can determine if you get that great home, and also at what price and other terms that may be important to you. I can be that Buyer’s Agent for you.
Setting a goal of buying a great first home and for the right price is a good way to start. And deciding what you need and want in a home is the next step.
Everyone should enjoy the home they live in, and also the neighborhood the home is in. Living in your own beautiful home in a great neighborhood is a dream that comes true for many buyers every day.

Deciding you want a smaller place can be for many reasons. Maybe your kids are all grown and have moved out on their own. Maybe it is just time to down-size, get a place that needs less upkeep, take time to travel, or to simplify your life.
