Buying Real Estate with Robin Gauthier
Interest rates are extremely low!!!! Home prices have fallen!!!! There are great deals out there in foreclosures and short sales. There is a huge inventory of homes to chose from. It is a buyer's market. It is time to take advantage of this unique situation and buy that home.
You will love me as your buyer's agent. I will be there with you every step of the way. The first step is to get pre approved for your loan. You do not want to start physically looking at homes until you do. There is nothing worse than finding the home of your dreams and running into a lending snag and losing the opportunity. You should have your finances in order to prevent this from happening. If you do not have a preferred lender I would be happy to recommend one to you. If you are not pre approved right away do not worry. The loan officer and myself will work with you until you do get pre approved.
The next step is for me to conduct a buyer needs analysis and sign a buyer's brokerage agreement. By signing the buyer's brokerage agreement, you are hiring me to be your Realtor. I will no longer work for the seller, but for you to get you the best deal on your new home. I will discuss with you at length what you are looking for in a new home. I have lived and worked in the Hampton Roads area most of my life, and we will find the perfect location for you based on this analysis. Contact me today to get started on this analysis.
Once we have determined what kind of home you are looking for, the search will begin, and I will not stop until I find your home. I will email you listings in the multiple listing service that match your criteria. The multiple listing service is basically where Realtors put their homes for sale. You will get emails from me every time a listing matching your criteria hits the market or has a price change. Unlike most Realtors, I am aware of what is out there in the for sale by owner market. I have already personally previewed these homes and will know if one matches your criteria. These homes are not on the multiple listing service and most Realtors do not even take the time to not only look for these homes but preview these homes.
When you find the home you have been searching for I will be there every step of the way until closing. First step is to conduct a market analysis to determine the best price for the home. You will know what similar homes in that neighborhood are selling for and have sold for to make your best offer on the home. I will aggressively negotiate with the seller to get you the best price. I will also arrange your home inspection, termite inspection, appraisal, closing, etc and accompany you at these functions. I will also coordinate your closing with your loan officer, closing company, and seller's closing company. You will be kept informed every step of the way. I will also keep in touch with you after closing to make sure everything is well.
