If financing is a consideration, there are many advantages to getting pre-approved for a mortgage loan. You will know exactly what you can comfortably afford and will not be looking at homes out of your range. You become a “qualified buyer” which puts you in a stronger negotiating position with sellers. If your offer is accepted, your pre-approval can simplify and expedite the closing process.
Searching for a Home
One of the many advantages of hiring Fine Luxury Properties as your buyer’s agent is the valuable resources we have available to use when searching for a home. Along with being members of the Highlands-Cashiers Board of REALTORS® with access to the Multiple Listing Service, we also work with other real estate brokerages on the Plateau to provide a larger network of information and service.
This is an important time to work as a team to achieve the best results for you. Remember, we are here to assist you and guide you throughout the entire home buying process. Viewing homes can be a fun, but timely process so it is important to view only homes that meet your needs, and to be mindful of the appointments we set up. It’s important to keep in mind that viewing properties in season may require a bit of advance notice so Sellers may prepare the property for your inspection.
Once we find a property or home you like, you may decide to submit an offer on the home. Before writing an offer, we will do some research to be sure the Seller’s pricing is in-line with the current market conditions. We can pull up the recent activity of sales listed through the Highlands-Cashiers Multiple Listing Service to find comparable homes pricing.
Writing and Negotiating an Offer
Our experience, knowledge and commitment to you will truly shine once we write an offer for your desired home. There are many important strategic factors to consider besides the price. This is where we really make a difference as we assist you in evaluating every important term of the contract as it relates to serving your best interests.
Managing the Transaction Through Closing
Once your offer is accepted by the Seller you are then “Under Contract”, but we still have much work to do to ensure a successful closing. Many of these steps will have strict deadline dates applied, and if not completed properly and on time, could cause forfeiture of your earnest money and loss of the sale. We will prepare you for the steps to expect.
