Moving to the Austin area?
When relocating to a new town, you can have a lot on your mind: a different job, different schools, a different church, different daily routines, and of course, finding a new place for your family to call "home". At Karp Real Estate,Vickie Karp understands this, and I am an expert in relocation. I 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 consider. It should go without saying that's too many properties to look at if you're limited on time! I can help you to narrow your search down to a reasonable number of homes that truly fit your criteria and financial goals.
- Before leaving town, write your needs into one list. Then list the things you simply want in another. If a house comes up short on your must-haves, it's one less house to look at.
- Have a predetermined price range. Let me connect you to one of my top, professional local lenders to help confirm your price range for you, so that they’ll be ready to provide us with the all-important “Preapproval letter” when we find the home you fall in love with, and are ready to submit an offer. This “Preapproval letter” will make your offer favorably stand out to the seller and their agent, when the lender is an experienced, local professional.
- Consider drive time to work or other interests. Traffic in the Austin area could be different than what you're accustomed to, so let me know how much time you're ready to spend travelling each day.
Before we meet in person, I could send you my picks for listings we should see. Or you might already have some strong possibilities culled from your own research. While virtual tours and photos are great, there's nothing like seeing homes in person. Let me set up any necessary appointments with other Realtors or homeowners and map a route. We could tour up to 8 or 10 homes in a single day if we work efficiently.
My objective is to see to it that by the time you leave town, you can rest assured you're on the right track to finding the best home for your family…or we may even find the perfect home for you on your first trip here, if that is your goal!.
