Let's find the perfect home in the
right location to fit your lifestyle.
FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS
It can be emotional choosing a home and often quite stressful. Let me help guide you through each step of the buying process by offering objective information about each property you are looking at. As a Real Estate Agent who knows the ins and outs of the industry, I provide local community information and home-specific details like condition and amenities, all to help ensure that you find exactly what you are looking for. And, once we find that perfect home, I will research comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair price. I will work with you to structure an offer and negotiate the terms so you secure your dream home.
In today's market, it is important to work with a reputable lender and provide them with
financial information to get pre-approved for your mortgage. We then attach this information with your purchase contract to create a stronger offer to the seller. Also, this information is helpful so you know what price point we should be looking at. A lender will review your financing options, what monthly payment amount you can afford and what you can expect for down payment requirements and estimated closing costs.
TIPS FOR BUYERS
SHOW THE SELLER YOU ARE SERIOUS
Be ready to offer fair market value. Low ball offers may alienate the seller.
Increase your Earnest Money Deposit or add an additional deposit later in the transaction.
Be understanding of the Seller's timeframe and be willing to work on their schedule.
Do not ask for a lot of inclusions or changes. Limit the amount of contingencies.
KNOW WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD
You can use an online Mortgage Calculator to estimate your monthly mortgage payment. You are able to input various home prices, down payment amounts, loan terms and interest rates to see how your monthly payment may change depending on different variables.
