The very first question I always ask is ‘Why are you moving?’
My process starts with a question about you — because really, who is this all about?
This may seem like an easy question, but don’t underestimate it. This question will be the key to uncovering all your needs and concerns.
So why are you moving? Maybe the kids have gone to school and the house just seems too big. It’s time for something smaller. Or maybe you’re looking into buying your first house; a home of your own.
Every situation has it’s own unique challenges and it’s my job to use my experience and knowledge to identify and solve them.
Your first step is to make a call. Put on the coffee and let’s have a conversation. We’ll step back and start with the basics to ensure we hit all the right points.
Together we’ll turn something as simple as “Why are you moving?” into the starting point of your new home.
What do you need help with?
Listing Phase 1:
Get the market evaluation done.
The first step in any transaction whether it is buying or selling is figuring out the numbers. Not only is a market evaluation needed, it gives us some numbers to work with to find out what your NET profit will be after all is said and done. The first visit is go over more than just the value of your home but also what you will make and give you a better idea of what price range we can look at for buying.
Listing Phase 2:
What to do first, buy or sell? – scary!
The decision made here will affect some steps in the process but the most important part is understanding the details of each path. There is a right answer and I have a series of questions and information that will help come to that correct answer.
Listing Phase 3:
Finances – the most important step.
A simple conversation with a lender just is
not enough. There are always emerging trends and tips on how to get the best mortgage that is right for you. I can provide you with a checklist of questions to ask that typically are not covered. Asking these questions early avoid hidden surprises when timeframes get ‘crunched’ during condition periods. They have also saved my clients a TON of money in the long run.
Listing Phase 4:
This may seem a little soon for this step but let me explain; in this market things move fast. Being prepared is key to making the transactions move smooth. Starting early takes some stress off in the long term. Of course we don’t pack everything. We need to focus on valuables and things that will affect the perception of potential buyers. The idea is to stage your home so a buyer can see themselves in it. This can be tricky. I can help.
Listing Phase 5:
The next step.
The next steps in my process will be tailored to your specific real estate needs. At this point we are well prepared and in the ‘driver’s seat’ when it comes to the decision making. Let’s get on the road and find out what you want!
