Buyer Experience

Purchasing a home is one of the most important decisions you’ll make, and the right advice and guidance is paramount. Market knowledge and experience matter, and they can make a significant difference in making sure that you not only find the right house to make your home, but that you also pay the best price.

Carla not only has a thorough understanding of the marketplace, but also has access to many properties that are off-market and an awareness of properties that are about to be listed. Most importantly, she is keenly aware of the nuances that determine value.  She will listen to your needs and find you the perfect home.  Once you choose a property,  she will represent your best interests throughout the purchase process, negotiating the best possible purchase price, managing and advocating for you during inspections, right up until closing.

Before the search begins.

Choose an agent. Who you work with matters and is a highly personal decision. You will need to trust them through one of your biggest decisions in life.  Your investment.

Get your financing pre-approval. When it comes to real estate, money talks.  Determining the mortgage amount you qualify for will help you set your price range and be prepared when you are ready to make an offer.   Unless of  course, you’re paying cash.

Know exactly what you want. Get crystal clear on the type of home you’re looking for, including size, location, old, new, #bedrooms, garage, parking etc. This will help narrow your focus on listings that are a good fit.

Be prepared to act fast. When the market is hot, good listings don’t last long. You don’t want to miss out! When you see a listing you like, review everything available online first, then schedule a viewing right away if you feel it could be the one.

Know your “no-regrets” price. Great homes in a seller’s market will often get multiple offers and sell over asking price. Ask yourself this – what is the highest amount you are willing to pay for this property with no regrets? Losing out on a home for an amount you would have been comfortable with is disappointing. *Be sure to run any numbers by your bank/lender.

Consider writing a letter or doing a video telling the sellers how much you love their house. Homeowners are emotionally attached to their homes. They take great pride in every room, every upgrade and feature and want their home to go to someone who will love it just as much as they do.
