3 Great questions to ask yourself to know when you're ready to buy
Is my income stable enough to meet my debt & expenses with an expected amount I can set aside for homeownership?
Do I know where I want to live and how much home I can get for my monthly payment? What is my buying power?
Am I capable and willing to maintain a home?
5 Things I do for you as a Realtor that you don't want to have to do all alone when buying a home
Preview and research all new listings that hit the market - Pictures don't tell the whole story so a lot of times I can save you
time and money by sharing information I know about a home that I will provide you to be able to consider or rule out a home
when deciding if it's one you should go see in person.
Red carpet access to reputable resources - Lenders, inspectors, appraisers, title companies, contractors, plumbers, electricians,
pool specialists, masons, roofers, locksmiths, fireplace specialists, basement & foundation experts, pest control & termite specialists
and more to handle any and all kinds of situations.
Communicate with the Sellers real estate agent - The agent on the sign in the front yard is working for the sellers benefit not yours!
And it won't be obvious to you so you need someone in your corner to work together with you to handle this communication with full
transparency that knows the business. This is where that saying "You don't know what you don't know" applies with great significance.
Coordinate the timeline of the transaction - There are a lot of moving parts to the buying process and an order to follow. I share with
you a roadmap that you will have access to in real time with updates along the way so you always know what's happening and what
to expect next.
Bring it all together for you with confidence - Knowledge is power and that's what I share with you all the way through so you are
confident and feel secure that you are making the best decisions for yourself and things move as smoothly as possible.
