What does it look like? • Where are you living? • What kind of home is it?
Are you having your friends over for dinner? • Where do you spend your time? The kitchen, the garden?
What does that look like? • What kind of payments are you making? • How do you feel about it?
Are you fixing the home up yourself? • Is it the home you want forever? Or just a stepping stone?
We want to thoroughly understand not only the type of home and community you are seeking, but why you are seeking it. A vital part of the home buying process is our communication with you. In fact, we will have daily contact, through phone calls, email, text messages and automatic home searches geared toward your specifications. We will go over the home search process. Using your criteria, we will search for properties using the local Multiple Listing Service available only to Realtors.
Home selection is initially a process of elimination.
Homes will be eliminated based on price, style, size, and condition. Communities will be eliminated based on location, age, traffic, etc. To help with this process, we may initially give you a few homes to drive by to scout areas and styles. Once the choices are narrowed down, the average buyer sees 12 homes over 12 weeks. At each home, we will ask for feedback. Do you like it? If so, why? If not, why? Could you see yourself living here? Your responses will further shape the homes we see next.
When it comes time to make an offer, we will write it for you taking into consideration price, down payment, seller subsidy, warranties, and contingencies for the home inspection, appraisal, and financing.
If you are thinking about buying now, or several years from now, contact us. We will get you pointed in the right direction to make buying a home as smooth as it can possibly be.
