Time to buy

Once those preparations are out of the way, it is time to find the right property for you. If you are familiar with the area, you may have earmarked a neighborhood where you would like to live. If you are not familiar and/or are from out of the area it is important to get to know the neighborhoods that interest you.

One of my favorite parts of my job is helping people understand our wonderful and diverse communities. As a Seattle native this is something I am particularly good at and I would welcome the opportunity to introduce you to our many fine neighborhoods. Sometimes visiting a few homes in a neighborhood and also enjoying a walk and a cup of coffee in the community is a great way to become more acquainted with the area.

I will also assist you in evaluating the potential long-term resale value of the properties you are considering. I can provide you with reports and information on historic appreciation in the neighborhoods you are considering and sales history on a particular property. I will arm you with the information and data that you need to make your buying decision.

Once you have picked out the property you want to purchase, I will help you make an offer that the seller will accept. Our market is competitive at times and I can help you to craft your offer in a way that gives you the advantage over other offers.
