HOW TO look FOR THE HOME YOU WANT
Thanks for including me in your exciting adventure and letting me help you with your home search!
This is the fun part!
1. You get to browse through all the available homes to choose what interests you.
2. We get to explore everything you want to see!
As your guide…
I’ll provide the most current information available for every home that might interest you.
I’ll prepare access to all the homes you want to see.
I’ll protect you by always pursuing your perspective and by never pressuring you to buy.
So you can relax and enjoy shopping, free to choose when you have found the home you want.
home search WEBSITE
I WILL BUILD YOU A CUSTOM-SEARCH PORTAL
I’ll find all the homes that might interest you, including new homes, foreclosures and bank-owned homes.
I’ll keep your portal updated, so you have instant access to the most current status, pricing, details & pictures for every home.
I’ll send a portal link to every email address you supply, and I will send new-activity email updates as often as you want to receive them.
YOU CAN EASILY SORT THROUGH THE LISTINGS
Please open your portal links right away, because this starts the new-activity email updates so you always have the most current info.
You can rate each home as a favorite (heart symbol), possibility (light bulb symbol) or reject (trash can).
You can attach notes and questions anytime you want, making it easier to coordinate your thoughts
WE CAN FINE-TUNE YOUR SEARCH ANYTIME
As your options & preferences clarify, we can adjust any categories (price, size, location, virtually any detail) you want, so your portal stays updated with only the homes most likely to work for you.
If you ever wonder about a home that isn’t on your portal, please call me—if it’s available, I’ll add it to your portal.
which homes do you want to SEE
LET’S SEE THE HOMES YOU LIKE
Feel free to drive by anytime to see if you like the area and the setting.
If you are curious, it goes on the list—it’s better to see too many homes than to miss the right one.
LET’S SEE AS MANY HOMES AS YOU WANT
How much time do you have available?
I’ll schedule our showings to minimize drive times, but we’ll probably need an hour or so for every 2-3 homes.
I’ll need to set appointments with the sellers, so please give me as much notice and as much time flexibility as possible.
LET'S TALK ABOUT IF A NEW HOME IS A GOOD FIT
Depending on your price range, a brand new home might be a great way to go.
I can help you choose the neighborhood, builder, floor plan, and options that make your brand new home the perfect fit for you, but only if you include me from the beginning of the exploring phase. For more information, click here.
LET’S GO AS MANY TIMES AS YOU NEED
There is no pressure to pick your new home on the first trip!
Also, since many sellers can use security systems to watch and listen to buyers conversations while we’re in their homes, it might be wise to save our private conversations for later, and come back for another look if needed.
LET’S SEE YOUR FAVORITES FIRST
You can text or email me your list
(or you can just ask me to schedule the favorites on your portal).
LET’S PROTECT YOU
Please include me if you look at new-build model homes or open houses.
Salespeople are working for the sellers, so they may shut me out of the process if I’m not with you.
Please don’t put yourself in a position where someone who is not looking out for your best interests is pressuring you to buy or controlling the details of your purchase.
when we go look at HOMES...
YOU CAN BRING ANYONE
If you are married or together, let’s try to look when you can both come—there will be lots to talk about as you clarify your perspectives, priorities, and preferences.
Feel free to bring your children—your choice will certainly affect your whole family.
If you want to include extended family or friends, they are welcome too!
MAKE IT EASY FOR YOURSELF
While it is fun to bring the whole gang, would it be easier for you to focus if you limit the numbers until you’ve narrowed down your options a bit?
WE CAN STAY AS LONG AS YOU WANT
There is no pressure to linger at homes you don’t love.
There is also no pressure to hurry through homes that interest you.
We can move at the pace that works for you!
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR ENERGY
We can stop for drinks, snacks, and restroom as often as you need.
Looking at homes takes some physical energy, and a surprising amount of mental and emotional energy so you (and especially the kids and older folks with you) may wear down faster than you expected—let’s look in short enough bursts that it stays fun for you.
