Have you been thinking about buying a home but don’t know where to begin? A buyer consultation may seem like a forgettable part of the buying process, but it’s a critical first step to success in finding the right home and working with the right agent.
Whether you are buying your first home or your fifth, there are a few key topics I like to review in every buyer consultation to ensure a smooth and enjoyable home buying experience.
Educate and review local market conditions, including how to be successful in today’s market when shopping for a home and making offers (the market is constantly changing!)
Review the home buying process and answer any questions. From the initial search to closing, I will take the time to review each step in the process and answer any questions.
Discuss specific financing options, preferred lenders, and steps to getting pre-approved. I can also run the numbers to help you settle on a price range you are comfortable with.
Review your search criteria.
I will work with you to review your “wants” and “needs”, as well as preferred location / neighborhoods, and more. No need to be a neighborhood expert, that’s what I am here for!
Go over the best practices for working together, and get to know each other better! You’re preparing to purchase one of the largest assets of your life, and you should feel comfortable and confident that your agent (me) will get the job done for you!
Whether you are just starting to think about buying, or are ready to actively search for a home, shoot me a message — I’d love to walk you through the process to ensure your home buying experience is a great one.
