WHERE TO START? ESTABLISH YOUR BUYER AGENT
To begin, the first step would be to ‘Establish Your Buyer Agency’ prior to the first showing or when I begin writing an offer. This means that I will be working with you exclusively to find you the property that meets your expectations and requirements. I will represent the interest of you, not the seller at all times.
As your Buyer’s Agent, I will do the following:
I will give you access to the Multiple Listing on-line auto-search. This means that you will be emailed and receive all the listings that meet your requirements from ALL companies on the Multiple Listing site. You would also be entitled to an on-line “portal” which will allow you to view the entire Multiple Listing search anytime you wish! Every time an agent from any company lists a home, you will receive that listing within 24 hours of the listing date. With the portal, you’ll be on top of all the listings entering the market!
As your buyer’s agent, I will use my years of experience to help you tour homes you wish to view, as well as point out any possible issues or concerns. Any potential issues that I see would then be examined by a home inspector after you have your offer accepted.
I can offer trusted mortgage lenders who will be honest, do what they say, and offer a pre-approval which is required by most listing agents to accompany any offers.
As your agent I will negotiate any offers written with my guidance as to price. When helping you establish an offer price, I will run a full market estimate showing you comparables to the property you are writing an offer on. I will give you my thoughts on how much I think you would need to invest as to structural and cosmetic upgrades.
I will help to establish a time-line for the transaction so that your move in date works, and you are comfortable with the scheduling of events.
If you’re asking the question, it’s probably soon. I will help you with a free situation analysis that will lead you, step by step, towards an informed decision. When you have reached that decision I will work with you to develop a plan that includes a timeline to accomplish all of the steps leading up to listing your home.
In my years of real estate experience, including specializing in helping seniors, I have helped many families with the very same issues that you are faced with. Read what my clients have to say about working with me.
I have developed a number of highly effective methods to market your home including online advertising, in-person showings, brokers’ open houses, virtual tours, listing services (including MLS), networking and prospective buyers who know us by reputation.
Pricing a home is really an art form. Price it too high and you scare off potential buyers. Price it too low and the seller loses money. My years of experience and home assessment process have taught me how to find that right asking price that shows value to the buyer, provide a solid return for the seller and ultimately minimizes any discomfort during the negotiating process.
I want to hear from you now. Please call me at (909) 447-7710 and I will work with you and your family to sell your current home and assist you in every step of the way to transition to your new home.
