BUYING SUCCESS PLAN

What do you want in a real estate advocate? A friendly guide providing information on different neighborhoods? A data-hungry researcher looking for the market trends and opportunities to put to work? A seasoned professional with the connections to get whatever you need done? Someone who can see beyond the walls and windows to envision the potential of what can be your dream home and the remodeling expertise to guide you on the professionals you need to bring that vision to life?

When you work with me, you get all of this and more! We will work collaboratively to create a buying plan that totally works for you, your timeline, and your goals. I will take the guesswork out of your next steps so you are always in the know and ready for whatever is coming your way.

Here is my pledge to you from start to finish:

Home Search

  • I know the local market and can focus in on the areas that have the greatest possibilities for finding a home at the price you want. 

  • To save you time, I will organize, expedite, and get the appropriate documents.  Homes that don’t meet your specific needs are removed. 

  • I will make appointments, preview homes with you, and help you determine which homes best fit your needs.

  • I will supply information and make appointments to see any property listed for sale. I know how to get detailed information, or an appointment, no matter what company the home is listed with.

The Offer and Contract

  • I will help you write an offer that has the greatest likelihood of success in line with your comfort level and goals. 

  • I will negotiate on your behalf, with the goal of mutual acceptance of both parties in mind. 

  • When the offer has mutual acceptance, I will deliver copies of the fully-signed contract to all parties and escrow.

  • Your earnest money will be promptly delivered and recorded. 

  • A calendar will be created with all your important deadlines noted and I will be updating this throughout the transaction. There are many dates and obligations to keep track of, but I have it handled!

  • When your inspector has provided his or her report, I can review this with you and provide my feedback.

  • I will coordinate the possession details and timing, working with the listing agent and seller on everything from keys to garage remotes and instructions for any systems and appliances left behind.
