Locating the right property for you
We have been recommended highly by our past buyer clients because we provide a much higher level of property search services. Once we know the characteristics and neighborhoods that you want for your property, we create a custom search for you that will alert you with emails when new listings that meet your criteria hit the market. It will also alert you to price reductions.
Getting the best financing
Finding the right home for you is your primary goal, but enjoying it with a lower payment and better mortgage terms is a very important secondary goal. We’ve researched and worked with many mortgage brokers and lenders in the Twin Cities real estate markets, and we’ll help you contact those that are the best fit for you and your financial picture.
We love helping Blaine, Andover, Ham Lake, Lino Lakes, Hugo and Twin Cities real estate buyers to find the perfect property. But we love helping them buy it at the very best price with the very best terms even more. Sometimes negotiations aren’t all price. A great contract can involve other seller concessions that create the right deal for our buyer clients.
Inspections and repairs
Many buyers forget that the price isn’t the only or the last negotiation point in a real estate purchase. There are a number of contingencies and processes that happen before closing, and one that frequently causes deals to evaporate is the inspection and repair negotiation process. It’s our job to help you order the proper inspections, schedule them, and make sure that they’re completed on time.
You’re the customer, and your money is making this deal work, so don’t be shy about asking any and all questions you have about the documents, requirements and exceptions in the title binder. There are deadlines for objections to what you find that could result in the deal dying, so don’t hesitate to get right to the examination of this document and the attachments.
Contract to closing
It’s both exciting and stressful negotiating a real estate purchase contract. Once it’s signed by the sellers, buyers can relax a bit, but we can’t. There are still more negotiations, document deliveries, inspections, title details and mortgage tasks to be accomplished to reach a successful closing and walk away with the keys to your new real estate property. we’ll keep your real estate transaction on track, and you’ll have the time and advice you need to assure you’ve covered all of the bases prior to closing.
