Step-By-Step Approach To Service
Kristin will guide you through every step of the home buying process, from identifying properties which meet your criteria, negotiating the sale, navigating the contract contingencies, and ultimately closing on your new home!
View My Steps To Buying A Home
Kristin’s first step in assisting you is to listen. Kristin wants to hear all the characteristics of a home and neighborhood that you desire. The price range, the desired proximity to home, schools, and places of worship are important factors. Special needs or community support should be considered early.
Kristin can assist you with recommending reputable mortgage bankers and lenders. A pre-approval letter will make your home buying process smoother and make your offer look more appealing to the seller.
As a Buyers Agent, Kristin has access to all homes for sale even if they are not listed with her. Let Kristin know of any homes that you might be interested in and she can book an appointment to visit the property with you. As you visit properties, make sure to make notes about your likes and dislikes so it will enable Kristin to determine what you are looking for in your dream home.
Offer To Purchase
Kristin is licensed to complete a Residential Sale Contract prepared by the Oregon Association of Realtors. Price, earnest money, finance, appraisal terms, inspection contingencies, title investigation, and closing date are all important considerations. Kristin will negotiate on your behalf to arrive at the most favorable terms for you.
Kristin will assist in scheduling inspectors of your choice. Environmental, termite, well, septic and sewer, as well as building/structural inspections are recommended. Kristin will accompany you on the inspection and negotiate items that you want repaired or need replacement prior to closing.
A few days prior to closing, Kristin will schedule a “walk through” for you to observe the property condition for a final time. Kristin will arrange for keys to be delivered to you and also your final closing instructions.
Uncork your champagne and welcome to your new home!
Any major purchase requires research, careful analysis, consideration, and thought. Home buying isn't any different! Determining the right location, the number of bedrooms or bathrooms needed, and outdoor space is the easier things. However, there are many other factors to think about in your home search. From your initial search to the moment you get the keys to your new home, I will be there, guiding you through the process. I can even help connect you with mortgage professionals to get the best rates.
As an area expert, I can help educate you on the different neighborhoods, schools, and other local community amenities that suit your lifestyle.
As your buying agent, I can help streamline the process of buying a home and make it easier for you. I’ve aligned myself with the top professionals in the industry, and once an offer has been accepted, I will personally help facilitate the process to close on the home. By working closely with mortgage brokers, title and escrow companies, home inspectors, and home warranty companies I will provide you with the best service possible!
