If you’re thinking that you might be ready to buy your first home, then first off: congratulations! Buying your first home is a big accomplishment, and it’s a really rewarding feeling. But, at the same time, it’s also a big responsibility that can be met with a lot of confusion and heart-ache if you don’t have the right plan in place and the right agent on your side.
The first step is to start by finding the right real estate agent for you to work with. Working with someone that really cares about your needs, lives and works in the area you’re interested in and has many years of experience can make the difference between you getting or not getting the home that you really want.
If you’re in the process of choosing a real estate agent, here’s what you should know about me and the services I provide to my clients that are buying their first home:
1I’ve helped a lot of first time homebuyers, just like you
You’ll want to make sure that you work with someone that has experience with people in your unique situation. There’s a lot of things to know, and working with someone that knows the challenges you’ll face makes a big difference.
2I want you to take your time
There’s no rush. If we look at a lot of houses, then we look at a lot of houses; that’s not a problem for me. I never pressure my clients into making decisions, but instead, I act as more of a guide to make sure you have all the facts. I want you to look at a lot of different places so we can make sure you make a well-rounded decision about buying your first home.
3I want you to get the important people in your life involved
When you’re looking at homes, you may want to bring your best friend, your partner, or even your parents, and that’s perfectly fine with me. It’s good to know that the people around you also feel good about your decision, and sometimes, you just need a second opinion.
4I'll Tell you the Truth
When we’re looking at homes, and you find one that you fall in love with, I’m always honest about anything I think would affect the resale value. I want you to know all of the risks and concerns that the home might have (and every home has a few), so that you can make an educated decision about what to buy. Of course, some risks are reasonable, while others are better to pass on, but I’m here to help you with that.
5I can help suggest the right people to work with
As part of buying a home, you’re going to need help from other people, like mortgage lenders, real estate lawyers, home inspectors, and more. Most first time buyers don’t know that, let alone where to find them. You should know that I can help with good recommendations of good people to work with. I have a lot of people on my side that help me deliver the best possible results and make the process as straight-forward as it can be.
6I get results
The fact is, I can make the process successful for you. I have a good track record of helping a lot of first time homebuyers achieve excellent results, like getting the home they want, for a price that works for them. Doing that is all about setting goals, understanding what they want, and having a solid plan in place that really works.
If you’re ready to buy your first home, I’d love to help. Let’s talk today about how we can make buying your first home a successful reality.
