Buying a home

I can help you find the perfect home, make sure you get the best price, and that the transaction runs smoothly from start to finish.

A home is one of the largest (and most fulfilling) purchases you will ever make

When the time comes for you to purchase a home, and you’re filled with excitement tinged with a little bit of nervousness, it is at this point that you need to take a moment to settle down and think clearly about all the niceties involved in making this happen. Whether you’re a first time buyer or just upgrading, doesn’t detract from the fact that you have a huge task ahead of you. Where to start from, the amount you can afford, or who to ask for help are some of the things that will be running through your mind. A lot of people refer to the act of purchasing a home as the biggest purchase an individual will make in their lifetime. My advice is that you devise a plan to guide your decisions because a person without a plan is already on the pathway to failure.

Here are some ways I can help you buy your perfect home

First Time Buyers

Working with first-time buyers can be a source of great joy. There’s this feeling of excitement and it’s all still new to you as you begin another journey in your life. First-time buyers were the focus of my attention in my early years and that experience made a huge impact on me. In order to have a positive home buying experience, it is important to have a good plan. I cannot overemphasize how important it is to set up a buyer consultation meeting so as to establish a good foundation to make the whole process as seamless as possible. Taking you out to checkout homes takes a backstage to the entire procedure. My theory is not only for first time buyers but for anyone interested in buying a home.

New Construction Buyers

I find it strange that there are lots of buyers out there that actually feel they don’t require the services of a REALTOR when purchasing a newly built home. This is such a fallacy. The truth is that, the sales agent sitting that home was hired by the seller and there’s no way he’ll put your interest above that of the seller. It is not to say that they have your interest at heart just because they help you handle the procedures involved. They’re only loyal to their clients and the profit they will gain from the transaction. Over the years, I have sold a lot of newly constructed buildings to my customers and they’ve always appreciated my professional input and valued my representation even after the transaction was complete. My recommendation is that a buyer consultation meeting should be set up.

Luxury Buyers

There are lots of challenges involved in locating that perfect high class home. The first thing you need to ask yourself is if you’re better off building a suit or acquiring pre-owned home that meets all your criteria. The next thing you have to decide is who to employ, who is an expert in the field that can make sure you get your heart desires. A lot of high-end sellers want to work with the best which means they’re always on the look-out for the best in the industry. An excellent way to commence will be to choose an agent who deals in luxury homes. It is also very important to work with an expert with an eye for details.

Selling and Buying (Move-Up Buyers)

This is often the hardest buying experience because it comprises of two transactions, which makes it vital to have a plan. If you thought one transaction was demanding, imagine how challenging it is to sell or buy a home considering the nature of this market. This makes it imperative for you to have a discussion about your specs, what you want, need and aim to achieve. My proposal is for us to have a buyer and seller meeting at your home. We will discuss how you want your next home to be like and appraise every feature of the home. We will carry out a review of several homes before putting your home on the market in order to ensure that your requirements can be found out there. In essence, we’ll make sure that you achieve your desire. All of these will require a lot of information and consultations and even follow-up meetings if necessary.

Investment Buyers

Real estate investment buying comes with a lot of twists and turns and compared to the regular home buyer who may buy every 7 to 10 years, in real estate investment buying, you may find yourself buying properties on a yearly basis or even more regularly. It could be just a small home for rent or a big family house. If you’re going to go into real estate, it is imperative for you to engage the services of a good REALTOR to act as your go-to agent. This could also include investors who flip properties instead of just leaving them in their portfolio. Through the course of my career I’ve been able to evaluate a good deal and then inform my clients on the most profitable path to take.

Relocating Buyers

The word relocating in this regard can mean corporate relocation or relocating without transfer from an organization. It is imperative to engage the services of an expert when doing this. Although a lot of the relocating companies out there would rather have you use their REALTOR, it is important to note that as long as you find a REALTOR who is ready to work within the limits of the relocation company and possess a good understanding of how relocation companies work, there’s nothing stopping you from picking ANY Realtor of your choice. It is advisable to go with an expert who possesses the skills, and a first-hand experience of how relocation companies operate, because it involves more details than a regular sale. If you happen to be out of the country, state or area, scheduling a buyer consultation meeting as soon as you’re available should be top on your agenda.

Downsizing Buyers

Downsizing in any form is never an easy task. When it comes down to it, you’re moving from a place you’ve called home for years. There is always the challenge of fitting all your possessions into the new house when you buy a smaller house. Selling off your current home will not be an issue because we’ll take care of it for you, seeing as we have all the patience and understanding needed to successfully purchase a new house.

Veteran Buyers

Coming from a military family, it is an absolute honor to be able to serve those who keep me safe and free. When it comes to purchasing a home, military families can take advantage of the Government’s VA benefits as long as they fit a few simple parameters. With the help of these aids, you can get into a home WITH NO MONEY OUT OF YOUR POCKET. I think you’ll agree that it makes sense to work with a real estate agent that is not only well versed in these benefits, but also has money lenders who are experts in VA loans. With this, you can get the best government VA benefits and avoid all the hassle involved in getting a house.
