Home Buying

Discover the Perfect Home in Central Texas

Everyone has different goals when looking for a home. You may worry about the cost, school system, or nearby amenities. I listen to your goals to narrow your search.

Whether you are from the area or moving to central Texas for the first time, I can help you compare neighborhoods and regions to find an area that fits your needs. I have lived in Austin for over 25 years and am intimately involved in the community. I can give you advice and feedback about different areas to ensure that your new home is the perfect match.

Here are a few of the steps that I can take to help find your dream home:

  • Initial meeting to discuss your criteria and area of interest
  • Discussion of strategies for helping with your home search
  • Introduction to mortgage lenders for pre-approval of a home loan
  • Arranging showings of the homes you are interested in looking at
  • Helping with the contract and negotiation processes

I guide you through each stage to simplify the home-buying process!

Find Out How Much You Can Afford for Your New Home

One of the challenges of buying a home is finding a property that includes the features that you want at a price that you can work with. Knowing how much you can afford before you start your search saves a lot of time and stress.
I can introduce you to mortgage lenders so that you can get pre-approved for your home loan. Getting pre-approved may also reduce timelines and improve your ability to close fast after a seller accepts your offer.

Explore Homes That Meet Your Specific Needs

No one wants to waste time looking at a property that is beyond their budget or lacks necessary features. I narrow your search so you can focus on the homes that are most likely to meet your needs.

After our initial meeting, I have a better understanding of your search criteria. If you can get pre-approved for a loan, we also know what price range to focus on. I then perform a tailored search of homes in the area based on the criteria that matter most to you.

Get Your New Home at the Best Price

Making an offer is often the most stressful part of buying a home. Luckily, you are not alone. I work with you through every step, including the contract process.

After finding a home that you love, we can come up with a strategic offer that fits your budget to increase the chances of a successful bid. I also assist with arranging and reviewing a home inspection, assessing repairs, and negotiating the contract. I’m with you through the closing process until you have the keys to your new place in your hand.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is a Home Warranty?
A home warranty covers the cost of maintaining household appliances and systems. It protects you when appliances break down.
When Do We Do Pre-Inspection?
A pre-inspection is typically completed before listing a property to help sellers detect issues that may hurt their ability to sell the home.
Do I Want to Try to Buy Before I Sell?
Selling first may be necessary to access funds for buying your new home. However, buying before selling is often more convenient. You can move into your new property and clear out the old one to make it more presentable for potential buyers.
What Is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection provides an in-depth look at the condition of the home, which helps buyers uncover any potential issues before purchase.
What Is the Closing Process?
The closing process involves having the seller and buyer sign documents and transfer money. It is the final step in transferring the property from the seller to the buyer.
What Is Title and Title Insurance?
The title is a legal document that lists the owner of the property. Title insurance protects lenders and homeowners in the event of problems with the title, such as an existing lien or loan on the property.
What Are Typical Buyer’s Costs?
Buyers often pay 1% to 7% of the sale price as part of the closing costs. The closing costs may include the title search, title insurance, home inspection, appraisal, credit report, recording fees, and various other fees.
What Are Typical Seller’s Costs?
Sellers pay an average of 1% to 3% during closing. The buyer covers more items, but the seller often covers the commission for both agents.
