Buying a home can be an overwhelming process. From financing to negotiating to closing, there are a lot of moving pieces that often leave homebuyers bewildered.  This is where I provide value, serving as your real estate agent & REALTOR.   I’ve published a book, which I share with my clients, called “The Home Buyers Guide, Everything You Need to Know About Buying A Home.”  You’ll probably be glad to read it.  Please let me know if you’d like a copy.

As your real estate agent, I’ll guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. By working with a professional agent who knows the ins and outs of the real estate industry, you’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience.  Here are some of the key areas that I might assist you with:

Getting pre-approved by a lender.  I’ll assist you in getting pre-approved by a reputable lender. The lender will ask you about your income, assets and debts, then discuss financing options, what monthly payment amount you might afford, and what you can expect for down payment requirements and closing costs.  Getting pre-approved is almost a requirement in our current real estate market; as most sellers/agents require a pre-approval letter be submitted along with purchase offers.

Choosing a home.  For most buyers, choosing a home can be an emotional process. I’ll assist you in this process by offering objective information about each property you choose to look at. From local community information like schools and zoning to home-specific details like condition and amenities, I am ready to  help you find exactly what you’re looking for.  Finding the right home is a process of elimination at any given time.  

Making an offer.  Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, I’ll research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair selling price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, I’ll assist you in structuring an offer and helping to negotiate you the very best deal.

Closing.  Closing, or settlement, can be a complicated process. In Nevada, the escrow & title company handles the closing process (although in some other areas of the US an attorney handles it). I’m committed to helping you ensure everything goes smoothly.

The Home Buyer’s Guide, Everything You Need To Know About Buying A Home.  If you have any questions, please reach out to me.  It would be my pleasure to possibly provide a copy of my book to you, if you might be interested in seeing what I have to share.  My goal is to help protect my clients in buying the right home for them.
