The ABCs and 1-2-3s of Home Buying
though buying a home is an exciting adventure, it can also be a complicated
process. Our goal at Pickett Street Properties is to streamline the home
buying process for you by breaking it down into understandable and manageable
steps. That way you can focus on finding and moving into your dream home.
We’ll do the rest.
Take a walk with us along Pickett Street. We’ll show you the way…
1) Choose wisely. When shopping for your next home,
you’ll spend a lot of time with your REALTOR®, so he or she should
be someone you:
(a) Trust and respect,
(b) Enjoy spending time with, and
(c) Won’t mind leaving your family or friends with as you
comb every corner of that condo, home or waterfront property.
These ABCs are critical to enjoying your home buying experience, so choose
your agent wisely. Interview Pickett Street along with two or three other
agents to find out who best complements or matches your style. Check out
their professional experience and industry accreditations. Be sure to
ask if they hold the National Association of REALTOR® ABR
designation (Accredited Buyer Representative), which ensures that
the agent has additional training and experience in handling home buyer
2) Step by step. The unknown is almost always scarier
than the known. For example, do you know the difference between banks
and brokers, or how pre-qualification differs from pre-approval? When
choosing a REALTOR®, you’ll want to work with someone who knows
the answers to these questions and who can spell out exactly what you’re
paying for in terms of earnest money and closing costs BEFORE you see
any homes. Pickett Street has the expertise to answer all of your questions
and to walk you through the home buying process every step of the way.
3) To know us is to love us. We
have a wealth of experience working with home buyers and know how
to make you feel comfortable to create an enjoyable experience for
everyone. Regardless of your situation – purchasing a first
home, moving up to your dream home, or investing as part of a larger
strategy – Pickett Street can help you locate and secure the
ideal property to achieve your goals. We’re homeowners and
busy professionals ourselves so we know how to:
(a) Develop a home search based on your wish list and budget,
(b) Utilize technology to maximize our time together,
(c) Advise you so you’re positioned to negotiate the
best deal, and
(d) Refer you to industry resources (lenders, inspectors,
etc.) to ensure a smooth and successful closing.
