Buying

Let me help you every step of the way. When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.

 

While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.

 

I am always familiar with the current homes on the market, and I know neighborhood values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.

Your First Step

Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home: to stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves."

 

Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.

 

Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.

Your Next Step: Loan Pre-Qualification

Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes.

 

Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.

I Will Find The Right Homes For You

Once you've been pre-qualified and know what price range you want to stay in, I can help you determine which properties fit your needs by using the (MLS) Multiple Listing Service system to locate them.

 

I have the best possible resources and communication systems available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even search my listings here at my website.

I will help you complete your financing and inspections, and close on the transaction. My top priority is to make sure that your home buying experience is pleasant, cost-efficient, and successful.

About Chad:


“Being a Real Estate Agent isn’t about SELLING, we are not salespeople, we are match makers, assisting throughout the transaction process and providing the resources required to enable our client’s to pivot in the direction that points towards their goals.”

Chad prioritizes providing an up-front, transparent, black & white service. When you ask for his opinion, you will get the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so to speak. In an industry full of “Yes” Chad believes that honesty & transparency is the key to creating and maintaining a life time relationship with each of his clients this is accomplished through quantifiable and measurable information and results. “Without direction, my clients and I are blind.

“Each client I assist, whether it be buying, selling, residential, or commercial, I believe that my client’s faith in me strongly derives from their confidence in my ability to get the job done. In saying this, there is an excessive level of complacency in the Real Estate industry. Each property is unique, this means that it is OWED a unique representation. Too many competitors take a cookie-cutter approach. Each of my client’s experiences are different from one another because it is tailored around them.. the key is in the details. In a constantly changing industry, we too must be constantly evolving and adapting. Feel free to browse through the “TESTIMONIALS” past clients have provided.”


One of Chad’s proudest accomplishments is the level of referrals he receives from past clients. 

“Referrals and feedback are mandatory for me to improve my business. The transparency I constantly discuss is a 2-way street, if I did something great, I love to hear back from clients. If I could have done something better…. there is an opportunity for improvement and growth, I welcome criticism with open arms.”
