The Buying Process

Analyze

Conduct a Needs Analysis

We know the home buying Experience can be fraught with mystery. As an experienced agent, I will leverage expertise, local market knowledge, and key industry partnerships to ease you through the process of finding your dream home. We've been down this road before, so we'll first ask the necessary questions and gather the important data we need to kick off your journey to home ownership.

Let's get started!

Finance

Get Your Finances in Order

At this stage, my job is to maneuver all the financial pieces to ensure you're on strong financial footing when that dream home becomes available. Our recommended network of lenders and financial experts will help tighten up your credit, determine exactly how much you can afford for both a home and a down payment, and make sure you're formally pre-approved for a loan, all with the goal of solidifying your position as a serious market contender.

Shop

Shop for A Home

Now for the fun part! I'll help you draw up a "wish list" of everything you're looking for in not just your new home, but your new community as well,. We'll match your must-haves with your budget and then draw on our local expertise and network of industry colleagues to help you find a place that's everything you wished for. Shopping for a home is exciting, so just have fun with it!

Offer

Make an Offer and Negotiate

You've found "the one" and you're ready to make an offer! I'll help you formulate a fair, data-driven purchase offer based on in-depth market analysis, and draw up the purchase agreements. Then, I'll leverage smart negotiating skills to guide you through contingencies and ensure you don't spend any more than you need to. And, should things not work out with one offer, we'll be ready with a game plan for the next.

Inspect

Conduct a Property Inspection

Once your offer is selected, you can elect to inspect the property. If you do this, we'll send an independent licensed inspector to fully check a home's condition. Because it detects issues that aren't apparent on a walk-through, a home inspection is a powerful negotiating tool and the best insurance you can ever get on a property. If issues arise, we'll work with you to develop strategies on how best to proceed. You're getting close, and you don't want to set yourself up for a houseful of headaches.

Approve

Get Final Financial Approval

This part can get complicated, but we know from experience how to keep the crucial final stages of loan approval form becoming overwhelming. We'll regularly monitor the progress of your transaction and keep you fully aware of unexpected funds that might be expected from you. We'll also work with your lender to make sure all the necessary paperwork is complete as we move closer to a smooth closing.

Celebrate

Congratulate Yourself on Your New Home!

Making it through escrow can seem like a mountain of details but the view from the top is worth it. Expect to sign a ton of paperwork before you get there, and we'll hold your hand through every step of the process. A few days before closing, we'll conduct a final walk-through, and then, once both parties sign closing statements, the keys are yours and we'll celebrate your new home and your new life!

The Selling Process

Search

Find a Real Estate Agent

We know selling a home can be more emotional than buying one, and we’ll leverage our experience and market know-how to ease you through the process. But first we’ll uncover your motivations for selling, establish a timeline and a marketing plan, and see how your home compares with others on the market. We have a track record of proven success, and you can rely on us to be your champion and best source for solutions.

Learn

Learn Your Home's Market Value

We'll assess your home's worth to determine its market value, taking into consideration such variables as features, size, location, market demand, and recent comparable sales. We'll then create a "comp", or comparative market analysis (CMA), that will help determine a competitive listing price that will attract qualified buyers and drive maximum interest to your property.

List

List Your Home

We believe in transparency, and at this early stage we want you to feel confident about our plans to sell your home. A listing agreement gives us permission to advertise and handle the sale of your house. It also covers the basic terms of our mutual commitment, including the length of time the home will be listed. We'll also discuss our selling strategy and what you can expect next as we move deeper into the process.

Shine

Make it Shine

It's all about curb appeal, and your home needs to shine inside and out before putting it on the market. We'll strategize with our network of skilled vendors to ensure improvements, staging, photography, and video are of professional caliber and give buyers a reason to show more than a passing interest in your home. Remember, you only have a matter of seconds to make a great first impression, so make it count.

Market

Market Your Home

A unique home needs a unique, customized marketing plan to set it apart from others on the market. We'll combine industry defining tech and robust online marketing strategies with tried-and-true techniques like high-quality fliers, energetic open houses, and alerting local buyer's agents to give your home optimum exposure. We'll utilize our trusted network of vendors, such as photographers, to make your home come to life and create local and global awareness.

Negotiate

Negotiate the Best Price

At this crucial stage, we'll leverage every
negotiation tool to help you make the best deal possible and arrive at a price that both you and the buyer can agree upon. We'll use our expertise to coach you through terms, contingencies, and buyer's financing. You're nearing the end zone. We want to arrive at a fair market price where you walk away happy.

Finish

Seal the Deal

The day you've been waiting for has arrived — the closing! We'll be right by your side during these final steps, engaging with the buyer's agent and lending institutions to ensure all requirements are met, inspections are performed, financing is approved on time, and all the necessary disclosure documents are provided. Then, sign on the dotted line, and congratulations! You've just sold your home!
