First time home buyers
So you’re going to be homeowner.
What an exciting time in your life! I work with many soon-to-be homeowners in Madison on their first home transaction. Real estate can be complicated, and sometimes overwhelming, especially for first time buyers. I help guide our clients through the entire process and my expertise takes a lot of weight off our clients, especially as a buyer advocate and agent.
For most first time buyers, I usually start with conversation involving a checklist of items as I start to understand the needs, wants, and have-tos, but I also work to usher my clients through the real estate transaction process. Some of the common items we cover are:
What does a real estate agent do?
How does a real estate agent get paid?
Is it okay to work with multiple agents?
When do we talk to a lender?
How do I handle my existing lease?
What can we afford?
Where should we be looking?
After we’ve established our path going forward, I take you through the home buying process from start to finish including negotiations, inspection, and closing. I work with home buyers for all types of transactions including new home construction purchases from builders like Veridian Homes to entry level homes across the city to forever homes. By having a pulse on the Madison real estate market, I have a keen sense of where the market is at any time and I can help you find the right home just for you!
