Before You Search
Before you do even look for a home, we can help with the process. We start by helping you determine what you can afford. You might have an idea but it can be hard to narrow that down if you don’t know what’s on the market. Once you’ve figured out a basic price range, we can help you get pre-qualified on a mortgage so you can show sellers your ability to buy their home. They can also help you determine exactly how much you need to spend on buying costs including all closing costs. This way, you won’t face any unexpected financial issues when you close on your home.
Finding Hidden Gems
After deciding to buy, it’s time to weigh options and see what is available. We will start by creating a “Computerized Automatic Buyer Search Program” which will let you and us know of any new properties matching your criteria, before they even hit the market. We also keep in close contact with the top 25 local listing agents locally in order to include potential “pocket listings” that may otherwise go unnoticed. In short, we will help you find the best possible property for your style, budget and family.
