Residential Information

Buying or Selling a home is one of the largest financial decisions that a person will make. I would be delighted to have an opportunity to assist you with that decision.



Are you looking to sell?

Your decision to sell may be based on many reasons:
  • Need for a larger home
  • Empty Nester
  • Change in Marital Status
  • Relocation
  • Perhaps you find yourself financially under water. 
 


I offer pre-listing consultation which includes:
  • Staging and making your house “sale” ready.
  • Counseling on of the overall process. This includes pricing, closing costs, marketing strategies, the use of technology in marketing and the general closing process. 


Are you selling because of financial issues?
If there is no equity remaining in the house that would be considered a “short sale”.  A short sale is when the house is sold for less than what is owed on the mortgage.  There is certain criteria  that must be met and submitted for a lender to agree to accept a “short sale”.  There must be a hardship! 
 
Are you experiencing financing issues but would like to safe your home? 
There are programs that are available that may help you keep your home if you qualify. 
 
Most importantly if you are having financial issues DO NOT IGNORE THE SITUATION!  Call me! I would be happy to review options with you

 
Are you looking to buy?:

Before you take that step there are a few things you need to do:
  • Meet with me to counsel on purchasing a home – “free” buyer seminar 
  • Get qualified by a mortgage lender.  A lender will need to verify that you: 
  • Have a source of continual income 
  • Have a credit history that shows you are ready to buy 
  • Have savings for a deposit and closing costs 


There are many programs available – such as 100% financing, 1st time homebuyer, teacher/fire/police and rehab loans for those homes that need work.
