Buying a House
Thinking of Buying? Here’s how we can help…
- Refer you to a mortgage specialist
Every home buyer has unique goals and financial requirements. Securing financing is the best place to start in the home buying process. Only after your financials are reviewed by a Mortgage specialist will you know what you can afford. Being Pre-Approved also gives you much more credibility as a buyer when you are ready to submit an offer. But knowing where to start and what questions to ask can be daunting. As seasoned Real Estate Brokers we have developed excellent relationships with the very best Brokers in the area who have proven themselves to us time and time again. We will assist you in connecting with a reputable financing professional.
- Determine the best geographic area for your unique needs
Demographics, product knowledge, and comprehensive understanding of the greater area are just some of the tools we bring to the table. We pride ourselves on our thorough understanding of the subtleties of the community. Whether schools, local politics, economy or commute times, few know the area better than we do.
- Find your perfect home!
Through our extensive network of relationships with other Brokers, and with the power of the Regional Multiple Listing Service (RMLS), we will help you find the perfect home for your unique needs. As full-service Real Estate Brokers we are members of the RMLS and are able to share the largest pool of available housing inventory with our clients. We are also Brokers with Windermere Real Estate, an established Pacific Northwest-based company, which affords us access to an extensive network of other Real Estate brokers. When a buyer’s needs are difficult to find through the RMLS alone, our colleagues are an invaluable pool of knowledge that help us to better serve our client.
- Negotiate the best price and terms for your purchase
Our goal when representing buyers is to secure for them the most amount of house for the least amount of money. Negotiating price and terms are crucial to achieving this goal. The presentation of the offer can make the difference between making or breaking the deal, and often can save a buyer thousands of dollars. We bring to the table a keen eye, extensive experience, and powerful negotiation skills to make the best possible deal for you.
- Guide you through the paperwork maze
The sheer volume of paperwork required to complete the purchase of a home can be daunting. Knowing what questions to ask and keeping track of time-sensitive benchmarks can also be daunting. Our thorough understanding of the procedural sequence of a Real Estate transaction along with the required documentation allows us to provide the best service possible to our clients.
- Refer you to inspection specialists
Purchasing a home is the largest investment most people will ever make, and with this decision comes tremendous responsibility. An important part of the selection process includes ordering an array of inspections and having those results reviewed by competent contractors to ensure that your new home will not come with unwelcome surprises. We have built relationships with local home inspectors and contractors who are invaluable in helping buyers avoid future headaches.
- Counsel you on capitalizing on your investment
One of benefits of investing in Real Estate is the ability to increase the value of your investment through tangible improvements that add both value and functionality. Building “sweat equity” by improving your property can be an essential part of capitalizing on your investment – especially when a softer market won’t do it for you. Our extensive experience provides us with the ability to offer sound counsel on how best to capitalize on your investment.
- Follow through
Long after the sale is closed we will be here for you! Over the years we have worked with scores of satisfied buyers who came to us with a variety of Real Estate ambitions. We have been honored to make a difference in their lives and in their futures. Our responsibility to our clients does not end with the completion of a sale. We value every client relationship and strive to make them last a lifetime.
