Buying Real Estate
Purchasing a home is a large financial transaction that involves a lot of information, time and people to manage. When improperly managed the process can be overwhelming and often results in undesirable outcomes.
You deserve to have a local, experienced, knowledgeable advisor by your side who will help you navigate through the home buying process. I am a lifelong resident of the Ocean City, MD area with extensive real estate experience, useful technology, established systems and a full support team to assist you at every step in the home buying process.
I will simplify your new home purchase through a proven, hassle free process that is outlined below. This established system ensures you have a seamless real estate transaction from start to finish. Through this system you can rest assured that your interests will be represented at every step in the process so you can focus on other important things in your life.
The first step is to set-up a time to discuss what you are looking for in your new home and answer any initial questions you may have. Things to consider during this process are:
- Property Size
- Property Type
- Price Range
- Intended Use
As we work through this list and factor in other considerations we will identify the ideal home for your wants and needs. This process will help focus your real estate search and enable us to create a plan to move forward with.
New Listing Alerts
Once we determine the type of property you are looking for I will set-up your Listing Manager Account that will help keep your real estate search organized. I will email you the new listings and price adjustments for properties that match your specifications as soon as they hit the market. This service will save you a lot of time and effort, while also ensuring you do not miss out on a good opportunity.
If you will be financing your upcoming real estate purchase I will get you in touch with our mortgage partners, whom can assist in getting you pre-approved. Getting pre-approved for the mortgage ahead of time provides several benefits:
- Ensures the upcoming purchase fits in with your overall financial planning
- Enables you to buy with confidence
- Puts you in a position to make strong offers in a competitive market
This is when the fun starts! Once you identify some properties of interest I will schedule private property showings for you. We can typically see all of the properties on your list in a day and I will always make good use of your time.
Make an Offer
Once you identify a home or condo that you want to pursue further I will assist you in preparing the offer. We will go through the recent comparable sales to determine the property’s current market value and an offer price that you are comfortable with. I will then negotiate on your behalf to secure the best deal possible with the most favorable terms.
During the contract phase I will oversee the mortgage process, title work, property inspections, homeowner association review and closing. My support team and myself will work with you through each of these steps and provide guidance as needed.
Several days prior to closing I will review the settlement statement with you and confirm the final figures. I will meet you at the property prior to closing for a final walkthrough to confirm everything is as it should be. We will then head to the title company to sign the closing paperwork. Time to celebrate your new home!
