What to Expect-Purchasing a Home With Patti
Patti’s Buyer Advantage
I love working with home-buyers. The excitement of shopping for your new home and the satisfaction and excitement on everyone’s faces when the transaction closes is just the best! I love our community. It is where I live, eat, play and do the majority of my business. Working with a local realtor has a big advantage, neighborhoods vary, I will know why some homes on some streets are worth more than others. I can determine accurate prices on specific homes in the neighborhood and usually know the minute I walk in a home if it’s over priced or not. When I represent you as your buyer’s specialist I will walk you through all the steps to buying a home and explain all the details along the way. I am here to provide you with my market knowledge and resources so you can feel comfortable and secure in your decisions when making a home purchase.
How I work:
When you choose me as your buyer’s agent, I do not have you sign any buyers broker contract, instead we mutually and verbally agree that we will work together as a team and only I will represent you as your buyers agent. I am in the business of building relationships, not just selling you a home. I genuinely care about helping you maneuver through this crazy world of real estate. The more I get to know you and your real estate needs the better I can find you exactly what you want. It’s not all about the house, it’s more about you and your lifestyle and what you need to make it all come together in a nice little package, your home! You can’t get that kind of caring and service hopping around to different agents. I will work hard for you and spend a lot of time researching the market, showing properties, reviewing disclosures, and finally writing a contract and negotiating hard for your dream home. I have successfully negotiated the winning bid on many multiple offer situations for my buyers, so don’t think all agents are a like, it’s a skill that comes with working for many years in the real estate business. I don’t miss a beat when it comes to service!
Not ready to commit? That’s ok, we can still sit down and have a chat! As a buyer you might need data and advice as you prepare to enter into the market. Just be honest and let me know your situation. I will be happy to help you along the way and provide you with the appropriate resources. Then when you are ready to make the move, and you want to connect, I will move forward with finding you that specific home. Whether it takes days, months or years I am here to help you along the way.
I will never try to “sell” you on anything. I have a no pressure approach, I’m geniune, you’ll get honest answers, opinions and advice. I enjoy spending my time working with clients who appreciate my time and advice. If this sounds good to you and you think it fits your style, give me a call at 480 888 6708.
Why get pre-approved?
As a buyer it is a very important first step to speak with a reputable lender to see if you qualify financially. A pre- approval indicates that the lender has taken a close look into your financial history such as pay stubs, W2’s and tax returns to determine if they can lend you specific amount of money. A pre-approval indicates to sellers that you are a serious home buyer! Getting pre-approved also shows me that you are motivated in finding and purchasing a home. You want to be absolutely sure you are comfortable with your monthly payments before you find that perfect home, not afterwards. This is the first and most important step to purchasing a home!
Saves you time and aggravation:
It makes good sense to have ONE Realtor you like and trust, representing YOU and looking out for your best interests? As your buyer’s agent I will save you time and aggravation! I am aware that you can search for homes on your own, but weeding through all the data can be exhausting and confusing. If you are searching on Zillow, Trulia or any other 3rd party site, the active listings will not be as accurate as the data that is provided to the Realtors. You see our data is in real time, plus we get more detailed information that is not provided to the public.
What I provide:
- I will save you time. I have access to a daily hotsheet of newly listed properties currently available for sale, you’ll never miss that perfect property when you work with me!
- I will preview homes and take pictures/videos if you are not available to see it in person.
- I can show you any home listed on our multiple listing service, no matter who is the listing agent even if it’s new construction.
- I will negotiate the best price and terms for your purchase, with my experience and knowledge of the market data, you will never over pay! I usually win the home for my buyers in multiple offer situations.
- I will explain, review and walk you through all the mounds of paperwork you will need to sign.
- You will be referred to my team of reputable professionals along the way.
- I answer my phone 98% of the time and respond to emails/text quickly, sometimes in a matter of minutes.
- I am quite a stickler about open communication and keeping you in the loop so you will ALWAYS be well informed on what is going on with the transaction.
No cost to you:
The best news is that working with a buyer’s agent is no cost to you! The services and fees of a real estate agent are included in the total brokerage fee (commission) paid by the seller of the home. This includes the fees paid to an exclusive buyers agent! It’s important to remember that the listing agent is representing the seller’s best interests, and as a buyer you need your own agent representing your best interests! As your agent, I will begin spending a lot of time and energy on your behalf, to make sure everything goes along smoothly. Since I work entirely on commission all of the services I provide are uncompensated unless we have a successful closing. This in no way means that you are just a number, I strive to give my clients the highest level of service, professionalism and integrity, as my past and present clients will vouch for me.
I have been helping buyers and seller navigate the real estate market since 2004. I am an experienced Realtor and have closed over 200 transactions. I am ranked as one of the top agents in my office and you can see why when you read what my happy clients have to say about me.
I look forward to helping make the purchase of your home a successful experience. So if you are ready to get started, call or text me at 480 888 6708, you can also send me a email me and I’ll get back to you.
