Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, but once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your goal, the rewards are unquestionable. I will help you locate and access properties that meet your specifications, take you to the listings that you are interested in, write up an offer and negotiate on your behalf. Once you have an accepted offer, I will help you complete any required inspections, work with your mortgage professional and lawyer, and be there for you on your possession day with keys in hand. While at your side each step of the way, I aim to make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable and less time-consuming. I am committed to staying familiar with the current homes on the market and neighborhood values so that I have the expertise that you require when you find the home of your dreams.
Your First Step
Your first step in the buying process is to ask yourself why you want to buy a home: To stop paying rent? To start building equity? To raise a family? To move up to a bigger house? To downsize? To rid yourself of exterior work like lawn maintenance and snow removal?
Next, where do you want to live? Consider area/community (north, south, east, or west side) and neighborhood (established or brand new; in a particular school zone; close to recreational facilities, transportation, daycare, library, stores, entertainment).
Think about home styles. 2 Storey, 1.5 storey, bungalow? How much space do you need? What rooms are non-negotiable (home office - den, formal dining room)? Do you want a home that is move-in ready or something to fix up and add your personal flare to? Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home. I will point out features in the home that will impact resale value.
Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification
Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company.
I Will Find The Right Home For You
Once you have been pre-qualified for a mortgage and know what price range you are comfortable in, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system to locate them. You can sign up for automatic email notifications to instantly see your matches as they are listed on the market, or I can email you the current listings that meet your criteria. Working for a new home builder, Ace Lange Homes, I am very familiar with the new home market as well.
I have the best possible resources to help you locate the new or resale homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even search listings here at my website.
I Will Help You Every Step Of The Way
My top priority is to make sure that you have the best home buying experience possible. I will do this by understanding your needs in a home and guiding you through each step of the transaction.
