Steps on Finding a House

Real Estate Broker/Owner with MBA Broker Consultants CalBRE Broker #00983670

First, we are going to drive by our favorite houses and narrow down our list.  Then, we will select which houses we want to view with our REALTOR®.  

Next, we will meet with our REALTOR® and bring our checkbook along, ready to make an offer.  Our REALTOR® will show us the inside of the houses we already drove by and marked as our favorites.  

We are going to take notes about the size of the house, the features, and write down any questions.  We will snap a few photos, if allowed by the seller.  

Then we will all huddle together and discuss which houses we liked the best.  We will number them in order, from best to least, and then narrow it down to just one favorite house.

See how quick and simple that can be?  I have heard stories from buyers who took 3 months (or more) to find a house, and then another few months to close escrow.  Finding your home and writing an offer should take only 1 day, if you do your research correctly ahead of time. 

Stick with our program and we will show you exactly HOW to find your favorite house and write an offer on it, all in one day.  What could be easier than that?

Hi Regina...I have had clients buying their home the very first day I've taken them out but most of the time they need more time to not only become familiar with the houses in my area but the area itself. Almost every one of my buyers has been from out of the area. Just learning about the lake and what it offers takes a bit of time.

I've had buyers buy a house the first time out, and the first place they saw, and I've had others where it took a long time to find the right place.  It's great if you can get your clients in so quickly, all the time!
