Buying with Jillian
Finding the right real estate agent can be the difference between a happy, stress-free home buying experience, & an unhappy and stressful one.
During your buying process, I consider myself your sole representative as well as the overseer of transactional details, negotiator, confidant and consultant. Here’s how the process goes…
After a phone or email conversation, I like to have an initial meeting with my buyers to discuss your housing needs, time frames, and the expectations for our working together so we can discover if we will be a good match. I recommend that you obtain a letter of pre-approval from a lender by this point. If you do not have a lender that you are currently working with, contact me for a list of high quality referrals. Here I recommend lenders who have helped our other buyers with excellent results and who I have used personally.
I will email you new listings in your areas of interest and will follow up with you weekly to make sure we’re on track. In this market, the best homes go quickly, so being able to be flexible in looking at them is important.
When you find the right home, we will prepare your offer. I will negotiate on your behalf through the entire process.
After you have a mutually signed agreement with a seller, we will assist you in setting up an appointment for a home inspection. You should attend if at all possible. We will negotiate your inspection with the seller and then we proceed to closing.
We will review your closing statement prior to your closing to make sure the numbers are correct according to the sales contract.
Of course this is the simplified version and we have so much more to cover in our initial, sit-down consultation. Would you be surprised to know that in every transaction there are over 100 phone calls/emails made and no less than 20 people working behind the scenes on your transaction alone? Would you like to learn more about what exciting buying adventure lies ahead for you?
My comprehensive, high-quality services can save you both time and money, as well as make the experience smooth and less stressful.
