DISCOVERY
We spend lots of time getting to know you. What do you want, why and for how long? Any particular favorite places? Do you have heirs that need to be considered? What’s your budget? We’ll ask you these and other questions to help create a manageable selection process for you.

PROPERTY SEARCH
Your agent will present you with a list of properties, both on and off MLS, to which you can react. We can revise our search parameters based on your feedback or take you to the next step.

SHOWINGS
Your agent will take you to see the properties that appealed to you in your search results. You’ll have an opportunity to see each property in person, ask tough questions and get good answers before you move on.

STRATEGIC OFFER AND NEGOTIATING PROCESS
We will run a market summary analysis for you. We’ll look at comparable properties, their list and sale prices, and then develop the right offer and negotiation process to help you buy the property you want.

Tips to Make Your Buying Experience Go Smoothly


 

(1)

Don’t be afraid to make an offer. Every deal starts somewhere.

(2)

Get pre-approved for your maximum purchase amount. Pre-approved buyers ease the seller’s mind and help make the contracting and closing process go more smoothly.

(3)

You can view properties in person — or now we can do live drone viewings if your schedule presents a challenge.


(4)

Don’t waste time by looking for a home too early as inventory changes rapidly. Decide to sell, get your financing in order and then be ready to move quickly.

 

 

(5)

1031 Exchanges allow you to minimize your tax basis by rolling one sale into the purchase of another property of like kind.
