How I can Help You Buy Your Next Home
“I will save you endless hours of frustration by acting as a clearing house for all available properties in the area. I will guide you through all the steps involved in buying a home, often eliminating a lot of red tape, and I will provide you with current financial alternatives as well as information on taxes, insurance, down payments, and closing costs.
“I will introduce you to new communities and neighborhoods, providing information on schools, shopping, recreational facilities, and places of worship. As we work together, I will carefully explain every step of the home-buying process, making sure you understand the transaction.”
Keep these imporant tips in mind when shopping for a new home:
- Excellent buys are often made on homes that require a little paint and soap. Two identical homes can be priced $1,000 apart when one needs only $250 of work.
- Work closely with your REALTOR®. A good agent should pre-screen homes that you’ve seen advertised, saving you time and effort.
- When you are serious about buying a particular home, it is important to price your offer carefully. You wouldn’t want to lose the home to a better offer.
- A contract offer you make on a home is accompanied by a deposit (cash or check). When your contract offer is presented to the sellers, they can accept it, reject it, or make a counter offer. Only when the sellers accept your offer and you accept theirs, do you have a binding contract for purchase.
