the buying process
Everyone has their own vision and goals with this investment they’re about to make. Before you buy, you should be able to answer the following questions:
Are you going to add this investment to your portfolio, or is this where you’re going to raise a family? Perhaps it’s both.
What can and should you spend on a property and what’s the best financing stategy for you?
Which neighborhoods would you consider?
How flexible can you be with location and price?
Once we find the property, we get into the due diligence process. During this phase, we generally recommend a professional inspection of the major components of the property, including all structural, roof, HVAC, plumbing, electrical and other smaller elements that can quickly turn this into a bad investment if not confronted before closing.
Is the property part of an HOA that is financially viable? Are there environmental factors that can affect the value of a property? We help you answer these and more to ensure a sound decision is made as you walk towards the closing table.
our selling process
One of the first questions we ask is, “Why are you selling?” This is a question that is inevitably asked by every buyer’s agent with whom we negotiate. If you’re thinking of making any updates prior to hitting the market, we like to guide you through what’s going to yield the most return and what you could potentially be wasting time and money on.
We then go through a comprehensive Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) to determine the value of your property, factoring in location, size, bedrooms/bathrooms, finishes and recent, nearby sales and activity.
When it’s time to market your property, we’ll design a customized marketing strategy, using professional photography and all digital and print resources available to us to find your buyer.
