Information for Buyers
We're glad that more people are becoming curious about this market! It's an exciting and rewarding situation, with interesting old homes in good condition, new luxury developments, plucky condos downtown, and well-planned family residences with lasting financial and utilitarian appeal.
Searching for a home
Despite (and perhaps because of) the great selections in homes in this area, buyers are having a difficult time zeroing in on the home or property that is uniquely appropriate for their needs.
Just remember: Browsing the listings for months is one way search out the deals, but weighing the investment potential of each property can be difficult, and many homes for sale are never listed publicly.
The Home Buying Process
As you begin to think about buying a home, you're probably acutely aware that this is likely to be your greatest investment ever (short of children or a good marriage), and you might be wondering if there's anything you really need to know as you go into this process. This is where your real estate professionals come in. With the help of a trained agent, you can come out on top of a closing that might otherwise have pushed your retirement ahead a decade! This happens all the time to buyers, who are left reflecting on the relatively small commission that would have brought a Realtor into the bargain to help them.
Buying your home will take time and careful consideration. What are you comfortable spending?
The first step is to go to a lender and get pre-approved. If you do not have a lender, we have several we can recommend. This will help you determine your budget and it will give me the tools I need to know on what, if anything to ask sellers for, in contributions to help cover your closing costs. This will also let you know what you need in lender required costs for down payment and your closing costs.
Once you determine what you can spend and what type of loan is right for you, we will go to work and help you find the ideal home that fits you and your budget.
MLS portals are a great tool to send you new listings as well as any changes on existing listings as soon as they hit our MLS system.
What is the ideal home for you? Bedrooms, bathrooms, garage, yard, open floor plan? Make a list for me of what you would like to see in your new home. Working together, I am confident we can have you opening the door to your new home in a timely manner.
