We offer a full service approach to buyer representation, and strive to make the purchase process transparent, enjoyable, and stress-free for our clients, with a perfect end-result – a home they love. There are four main phases to our buyer services.
Phase 1 – Preparation:
We sit down with you for a consultation to guide you through the purchase process and timeline, local market conditions, and many other important purchase-related matters so that you feel well prepared for the road ahead. We also spend a lot of time listening to your ideal criteria for your next home. After this meeting, we enter all of your criteria into our MLS (Multiple Listing Service) in order for you to receive properties that fit your needs well, in real time.
Phase 2 – Finding your Home:
We take you out “shopping” to view homes on the market for sale. For many buyers, this is the most enjoyable part. Looking at properties is more than just determining which ones you like and don’t like. It actually helps determine what it is you are looking for in a home. It also allows your buyer agent to understand what you respond positively to, which helps to narrow down the search to finding the perfect match in a home. When we look at properties together, we are often able to give you valuable insight into the homes in real time, advising on things such as the value, mechanical-related aspects of the home, as well as potential resale issues that you might not have considered.
Phase 3 – Making an Offer:
Once you identify a property you’d like to buy, we assist in verifying the home’s value, offer strategy and paperwork, and negotiation. It’s our job to get you your home with the best price and terms possible.
Phase 4 – The Transaction:
We manage the transaction so that things run smoothly. We work proactively to prevent issues before they arise, ensure your deposits are always protected, and keep you informed every step of the way. Throughout the process, we make sure you have the best team to assist you by providing top notch referrals for lenders, home inspectors, attorneys, and more.
After you’ve purchased your home, we will stay in touch and are always available. Whether you’d like advice on home improvements and their effect on resale value, or need a referral for a good contractor, we’re here to help. The best place to start is by calling us, or registering for a home buyer consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!
