Chances are, the home you buy will be the largest investment you’ll ever make. And obviously, buying a home in the Bay Area takes a lot more than finding a home on Zillow. It’s a tough market for Buyers … with over half the houses getting multiple offers and overbids of over $100,000. It’s not about finding a house, it’s about “winning” a house.
But there is hope. There is a strategy that works. We basically work as your “coach” to guide you through the process .. and win.
That can mean getting you set up with a reliable mortgage broker so you can be competitive. It means finding neighborhoods you might not have thought of. Helping you look beyond the staging of a house to its “bones.” That means helping you sort through all the tradeoffs … size vs. location, fixer vs. tricked out, and yes, far from the madding crowd vs. “close to coffee.”
From there, we coach you on “getting the house.” From writing a strong offer that will win in multiple offer situations to negotiating the best offer when it’s negotiable. It’s helping you understand disclosures and inspections and putting them in perspective. And most of all, it’s making sure you’re protected through the entire escrow process.
It’s all about having someone on your side who knows all the ins and outs of real estate in this area, and has the experience of helping a couple hundred buyers navigate the process. And all in all, it’s about helping you find – and get – a home you’ll really love.
