The services of a professional Real Estate Agent can help you stay organized –saving you time, money, & stress. Especially helpful if you are a first-time home buyer! There is so much free information on-line, and it is fun to ‘window-shop’. However, when you hear “if you can click a mouse, you can buy a house”. I say, “please don’t”. Realtor services are generally free to buyers. I help you organize and focus on what’s important to you & your family. First, organize your “needs & wants”. What are the top 5-7 things you must have in your new home?
• Is it price, location, size, school district, square footage, pet-friendly, short commutes, parking,…?
• Do you know what you can afford? Clear up credit issues, get those finances organized.
• I refer you to a mortgage professional to get a “pre-qualification” letter. That helps clarify your ability to purchase and your price range.
• Meanwhile I do research based on your criteria. I email you pictures of properties in your price range. By a process of elimination we figure out what properties to view.
• I make those appointments and the Fun begins. When we find the right property I present & negotiate your offer based on price & terms .
• Once the offer is accepted I provide all parties with a time-line of contractual obligations.
• Behind the scenes I choreograph inspections, workmen, title, & mortgage professionals. I keep my clients organized for less stress during the purchase! I’m nicknamed “The Closer” because I work to close on time! After closing I maintain your files, and you become “clients for life”.
Buying property is fun! With proper organization, my clients can relax & enjoy their new home! Until they call me again to get organized for their next home move. Elaine Sisman, Realtor, The Keyes Company 305 975 7781 http://www.ElaineSisman.com ESismanRealtor@aol.com
