Buying

Let me help you every step of the way. Don't forget to ask about my Home Buyer's Guide !

How I Can Help?
  I love working with buyers....the hunt for the right home, the engagement with the buyer's excitement and joy of finding that home, helping and guiding them through the process is so satisfying! I'm the extra set of eyes with you when you are viewing homes and I will see things that you may not and I'll make you aware of things that you may not have considered.
  Do you find your self missing out on those new listings? Let me help you receive those new listings as quickly as I receive them, with my Client Connect. Anytime I receive a new listing, it will automatically send you an email with the full specs of the property. This will give you the jump you need before it is available on the public websites.
 
Fill out your request on my 'Homefinder' form and I'll get you started!
 
  When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
 
  While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
 
  I am always familiar with the current homes on the market and I know neighborhood values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.
 
Your First Step
 
  Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home:
 
  • To stop paying rent?
  • To start building equity?
  • To have a place of your own?
  • To raise a family?
  • To entertain business associates?
  • To move up to a bigger house?
  Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."
 
  Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific.
 
  •  Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country);
  •  Community (north, south, east, or west side);
  •  Neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new);
  •  A particular school zone;
  •  Recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation,
  •  Day- care, library, stores, entertainment.

  Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work?

 
  Think about home styles.
 
  •  How much space do you need?
  •  Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable?
  •  Consider size and kind of property.
  •  Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up?
  •  Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in  this particular home.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Approval
 
  Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes. You will need to get a pre-approval which allows you to be more confident when purchasing. The lender will request numerous documents from you, do a credit check , confirm downpayment and will let you know your maximum purchasing power.
 
  Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.
 
I Will Find The Right Homes For You
 
  Once you've been pre-approved and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs.
 
  I have the best possible resources and communication systems available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even search my listings here at my website.
 
I Will Help You Every Step Of The Way
 

  I will help you complete your financing and inspections, and close on the transaction. My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.

  I'm always ready for a challenge and ready to deal quick and efficiently with any obstacles or concerns. I'll always give you an honest professional opinion !
