First Step:  You've got to see what's out there.  I will set you up on an automated service which will send you a list of qualified homes that meet your criteria.  You will be immediately notified and presented with any new properties that match your criteria.

Second Step:  We narrow down your focus, and tour a selected few to help with the process.

Then: I pinpoint 7-10 properties that I feel you should see, and, along with any others that look appealing to you, we go preview them.

Eventually: After deciding to make an offer, we may tour comparable properties to develop value.

The Offer: Once you have located your home of choice, I will prepare an itemized estimate of Buyer's closing costs, down-payment and monthly payment.  You will need to have a pre-approval letter from your lender to submit with your offer.  We will review the comparable sold properties to determine approximate fair value and I will be in contact with listing agent for any additional information, and accurately assess the your negotiating position.

 

I will then prepare the Residential Purchase Agreement, on your behalf, with careful  consideration.  I am very experienced in writing solid, appealing and respectable contracts.  Purchase agreements CAN be performed and signed digitally through a service that I use called DocuSign.

 

I will then communicate your offer to Seller's agent and negotiate on your behalf and facilitate the negotiations of any Seller’s counter offer to you, and vice versa.

 

Negotiations: I will gather as much information as possible to establish your best negotiating position.  Often times these days, your offer many be 1 of 6-7 (or even more).  There are ways (not including more $$) to make your offer stand out and be more appealing and advantageous than the other competing offers.  There are quite a few different options and terms (depending on the situation) that my be very beneficial to you.

 

Accepted Offer: Once your offer has been negotiated and accepted, the due-diligence period starts (for home inspections, property discovery, etc).  You will also contact your lender and immediately start the official loan process (with my assistance).  I will initiate and coordinate a thorough home inspection (from a licensed, qualified home inspector).  I will open escrow, as per contract, and forward all necessary information.  The inspection report will have detailed analysis of the home's systems and problems (significant or not).  Together, we will go over the report and decide which items we will ask to be repaired/ corrected.  This is often another round of negotiating (though usually minor). 

You will also need to deposit your Earnest Money Deposit "EMD" into escrow within 3 days.  I will make sure that your EMD is not at risk, until you have signed-off on ALL of your existing contingencies (usually 17+ days) and will be very clear about that.
