Buyer Information

There are several benefits to using a professional Realtor during any real estate transaction. These are just a few...

GUIDANCE

A real estate agent should be more than just a person who unlocks doors for you. A great real estate agent provides guidance by explaining possible scenarios, interpreting the market and suggesting strategies for negotiating a contract. Their words of wisdom might not always be exactly what you hope to hear but a little honesty goes a long way.

 

PEACE OF MIND

Your agent has "been around the block" and has plenty of experience with this fast-paced market. By working with an agent who is familiar with multiple offer situations, you are already at an advantage when you decide to move forward in presenting, or accepting, an offer. Negotiations can be tricky so let your agent's confidence ease your mind.

 

LEGAL SOUNDBOARD

A great agent or brokerage will have a solid relationship with a local real estate attorney. We always hope that you experience a smooth transaction and never have to worry about the advantages of having a legal professional on your side. However, you should set yourself up for success early by committing to a dependable real estate agent who will get you legal guidance if a transaction you're involved in ever goes sour.

 

FRIENDSHIP

We're not going to lie, the buying process can get stressful. But having an agent that you can trust, and bond with, is sure to give you some additional confidence and reassurance when you need it most. A great professional friendship will not only help to create a more enjoyable transaction but, also, a higher level of commitment on both sides.

F.A.Q.s

Where do I start?

We know getting started can be just as overwhelming as it is exciting. It's our job to be your support and we love our job! Give us a call or fill out a buyer's form below for a more detailed consultation. Maybe even over coffee or cocktails!

Where is the best information about neighborhoods when looking for a new home?

Honestly, the best insights will come from your buyer's agent. We're well-educated on the nuances of various neighborhoods but we also know of homes that might be available before they show up online. We'll keep you up to date on the latest and best information. 

 

When working together, do I have to pay you to find my home?

No. Our paycheck comes from the seller of the property that you decide to purchase.

 

How do I find a lender?

We can't stress enough how important it is to work with a reputable lender. It can make or break your transaction and experience. We work with the best lenders in the area and will happily facilitate an introduction.

Do I have to have a down payment to buy a home?

This is actually a financing question that you will go over with your lender during the pre-approval process. It all depends on the type of loan and your qualifications. 

 

How much will my mortgage be?

We recommend discussing this with your lender but if you're interested in seeing what a new mortgage for your dream home would be, click the link below for a rough estimate using the mortgage calculator.

No. As soon as you sign the buyer's agreement and start working with us, we have only YOUR best interests at heart. 

What do I do about utilities?

You will want to transfer everything over a few days before closing. We will send you a list so that you can check them off as you go. And don't forget to change your address with USPS.

Is there anything else to keep in mind before moving?

Everyone has a different level of cleanliness- what feels clean to you may be difference for the seller. We recommend planning on a few days to clean and prepare your home before moving in.
