Schedule the Consultation
If you choose to work with Bachman Real Estate, you can expect an in-depth consultation to be the first port of call, before we even start looking at homes. I want to establish a relationship, set expectations and start things off on the right foot. Our one-on-one sessions are thorough and will be valuable to you, in that we will be able to use the information to give you the best advice. Therefore, I ask that you are totally upfront and honest with your Realtor® so as to establish a positive working relationship.
For the consultation, it helps if you come prepared. Think about what you want and answer the questions on our Getting Started page. Bring your pre-approval if you already have one, and be ready to answer questions about price range, neighborhoods and timelines.
Search and Visit Properties
After you’ve had a consultation with us, we can help you find your dream home. We will help you to narrow your search based on your parameters – including budget – and set up a search profile on our local MLS. We set up alerts to that we can notify you regularly of new properties coming up, and monitor price changes.
We can also embark on one of the most exciting parts of the home buying process – looking at homes. Of course, we’ll need to see your pre-approval letter first and we will work alongside you throughout this process to ensure that everything runs smoothly, so you don’t miss out on a viewing of what could be your dream home.
Offer and Negotiations
So, you’ve found the home you want. Now, it’s time to really get things moving. I will work closely with you to get a written offer in place. I make sure that it’s a competitive offer, based on market analysis and current conditions. We get average price ranges and comparable properties to make sure that the offer is in keeping with trends, and we look at area-specific negotiating strategies too.
The negotiation part of buying a home can go several rounds. Don’t worry – this is completely normal. But this is also why having an experienced Realtor® in your corner can be really valuable. Rest assured that at Bachman Real Estate, I always look out for the best interests of our clients and are expert negotiators. As part of this service, I also keep in touch with your lender or banker, advising you on the best way to proceed throughout.
