Moving to the area?
Relocating to a new city is overwhelming by itself, without considering the daunting task of shopping for a home in addition to finding the right Realtor. At Laura Baker, we understand this, and we are experts in relocation. We have a long history of finding buyers the right home by going through a very specific checklist to help you efficiently narrow your options.
When most buyers go into home search mode - they may come up with 50+ listings to see. Naturally, that's too many properties to look at if you're limited on time! We can help you to narrow your search down to 20-25 houses, with these items in mind:
- Come into town with two lists: One should be of things you must have. The other should be for optional things you want. When a house can't fulfill your basic needs, we can obviously eliminate it from the list.
- Know your budget. If you are going to get a home loan, have your pre-approved amount prior to seeing listings so we can eliminate homes beyond your price range.
- Think about drive time to your job or other interests. Traffic in the area could be different than what you're accustomed to, so tell us how much time you're ready to spend travelling each day.
Before we meet in person, we could send you our picks for possible homes. Or you could already have some favorite listings as a result of your own research. While seeing listing photos on the web is helpful, there's nothing like touring homes in person. We can schedule any necessary appointments and map a route. We could see up to 8 or 10 homes in a single day with the proper planning.
Our goal is to see to it that by the end of your visit, you can be relieved to know you've found the best home for your family. Call us today at (704) 896-2000 to start your home search.
