I had an interesting discussion with a friend about a marketing piece we're doing for another project. This friend suggested that there are really 3 questions that need to be asked in any "sales" discussion. 1. Where are you now 2. Where are you headed? 3. How do you get there? And I thought how this fits really well when helping people buy homes.
I'd love for you to take a moment and contemplate the first two questions.
Where are you now and where are you headed?
Are you a renter looking to purchase? Are you relocating from another area? Do you own a home in the area and are looking to upgrade? Do you own a home in the area and are looking to downsize? Are you looking to enter the real estate investment market or add to your portfolio?
How do you get there?
The KEY to answering this lies in knowing the answer to the first two questions. There are some very standard processes involved in buying a house. Our flow-chart looks something like this. And then we customize each steps to your needs, based on the information you reveal to us. The more we understand from you, the easier the entire venture will be.
