Why should you use us when buying a property?

It's true that anyone can shop for a property, and even get a peek inside, without formally signing on with a real estate agent. But unless you have time to make home shopping a part-time job, our agent might be able to match you with the perfect property much faster.

While anyone can spend a few minutes online and pull information on sales of comparable properties, our real estate agents have the experience to know whether a specific property is overpriced or underpriced. In the best-case scenario, our agent will have such a good idea of what you're looking for that you won't even waste your time touring properties that won't work.

Not only can our agents provide all the data on local property sales that you want to see, but they can also bring assets to the deal that come from years of watching waves of transactions in the neighborhood.

Often, the touchiest part of a real estate purchase involves the delicate dance of requesting repairs. Our real estate agent will be able to identify trouble that you may not see, as well as recommend a good independent home inspector who will provide a detailed report on problems with the property.

When buying a property the paperwork can be tiresome. Our real estate agent can save the day. Often, these offers and counteroffers are limited by a time frame. The odds of missing something, not initialing a margin or not checking a box, can drop substantially when you're working with someone who knows the paperwork inside and out.

Let our agent handle the offer and counteroffer by keeping it an unemotional negotiation. Experts advise that you let the agent take the heat in difficult negotiations. The best way to make a deal is to look for the positive part of every offer and counteroffer, and never let the other party see you make a sour face. Often, the most effective way to do that is to present the face that's doing business -- not your own.

Our experienced real estate agent is familiar enough with local zoning ordinances to make sure you don't buy the wrong property. The real estate agent will make sure you're buying a property where the city allows what you plan to do. Also, if the city has policies for expensive upgrades on older properties the real estate agent will make sure that requirement is disclosed before the deal goes very far.

While you may (and should) keep files yourself, you can count on our agent to keep that information organized and safeguarded should trouble crop up with the property in years to come. You'll also be able to contact our agent at any time in the coming years should you have questions about the property yourself.

When a sale nears closing, all kind of pitfalls can kill the deal in the final hours. Our real estate agent knows to watch for trouble before it's too late. When you're getting close to the closing, you want to make sure there aren't any unexpected title issues, that the financing has come through and that all of the professionals involved are staying on task and on timeline.

Our real estate agents are used to dealing with these types of issues and can work through almost any challenge that arises.
