In order to find the home of your dreams, we're going to need to go look at some together!
Before We Go On Tour
During our initial consultation I will find out the best times for you to tour homes depending on your personal schedule. I am available 7 days a week, evenings and weekends included, to get you into the homes you want to see. Sometimes we may need to see a home the day it hits the market. Other homes may have restricted showing times or require plenty of advance notice. I can advise you when time is of the essence and help to arrange a showing appointment that works for you.
For first time buyers, it is often beneficial for us to schedule a few initial tours of about 6-8 homes each. This will allow you to develop a good basis of comparison between various homes, become thoroughly educated about the market and the process, and gain confidence in making a smart and savvy investment in the right home for you.
While We Are On Tour
We will pack a lot of information into each home tour so your valuable time is spent wisely. I will be prepared to answer all your questions about each home and provide relevant market data and other specific information about the listing and neighborhood.
Touring homes can be exhausting! Bring snacks and something to drink. Comfortable shoes that you can easily slip on and off are the way to go. Many homes require shoes to be removed upon entry. A notebook or note-taking app will be helpful in recalling the details of each tour.
How many homes should we view? As many as you need to until you find the perfect one. I have worked with buyers who have found a home in a weekend, and others that looked for more than a year. I will never pressure you to make a decision. I will ensure that you always have the information you need to make the decision that is right for you.
After We Tour
We will debrief after each tour and I will take note of what you did and did not like about the home. I will keep a list of homes we have toured and update your preferences and needs accordingly. We will make a decision or plan of action as to the next steps.
