How can I
help you buy a home?
your agent I can make the process of buying a home easier, more enjoyable, less
time-consuming, and less expensive than it would be if you performed it alone.
You will be prepared so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer. It is
my pleasure to help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your
specifications. I will help you through the many details.
We will work
closely together to find just the right property. The crucial first step is
an interview (either by phone or in my office) to determine the kind of home you
want and need. We will determine what location(s) you are interested in, what
style of home you want, and how much you are willing to invest in your purchase.
Taking a few minutes to evaluate where you are and where you want to be will help
us to develop a game plan that saves you time and money. Together, we will
analyze your resources, and prepare you to buy. We will meet with a loan consultant
to determine exactly what price range works best with your goals and objectives.
I highly recommend obtaining a certificate of pre-qualification for a mortgage
loan at this early stage; it will help you focus on homes in an appropriate price
range, and will strengthen your bargaining position once you locate the home you
wish to buy. When your offer to a seller includes a letter from your lender indicating
that you are ready to qualify for a loan, the seller will take you more seriously,
and the sale will proceed much more rapidly.
Together, we will find the
right homes for you to view. By orienting you to Raleigh, Cary and the surrounding
area, I will help you become familiar with the Triangle marketplace. I will make
available to you all the details about all the homes (both new & existing) that
meet your specifications. By providing the information about neighborhoods, schools,
shopping, churches, taxes, utility costs, zoning, transportation, parks and recreation
facilities the decision will be easy for you.
Finally, you will select
a home. So that you will have all the information, I will analyze the market
for you. We will review recent comparable sales so you will be an informed buyer
at the time you make your offer. I will prepare your written offer and negotiate
on your behalf. I will help you complete your financing and inspections, and close
on the transaction.
Buyer Agency I offer a Buyer
Agency, which is an arrangement where I actively look out for your best interests,
but get paid by the seller. This relatively new situation in Real Estate eliminates
that age-old question: "Just who is my agent representing-me, or the seller?"
My first priority in my relationship with you, the buyer, is that your home buying
experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.
