Greetings and warm wishes for the New Year and the new decade!
It may be January, however we are on the brink of the spring Real Estate Market. This is important whether you are a buyer or seller. If you are a buyer, it is time to get a quality mortgage pre-approval. Once that step is taken, you are on your way to home ownership. This application can typically be done online. I can introduce you to mortgage loan officers who you will have a great experience with.
The next step forward is meeting with an experienced agent to begin a more detailed discussion of specifics, such as the style of home desired, location, proximity to highways and shopping, and general age of home. As I tell many buyers, finding the right home is a process and sometimes the final choice is quite different from the initial goal. A quality Realtor will support you through every step of the home-buying process until the final closing and you have the keys. You want to work with a company and agent with proven success.
From January 1, 2019 to January 1, 2020, Coldwell Banker was the company with the largest percentage (10 percent) of units sold (buyer and seller) statewide. You want to work with a company with these strong results.
Here is a testimonial from a satisfied customer:
“We worked with Jeri Baily on both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new one. Always professional and very knowledgeable of the market, Jeri was a pleasure to work with. She made a stressful process less stressful through her clear communication and attention to details. She even helped with the logistics of our move! We would definitely recommend her as an agent.” – Dan & Joan Scott
I will write in the future about essential steps for a seller to prepare for the market. Any and all questions are welcome! I can be reached at 508-259-9848 or [email protected].
