The Off-Market Advantage
7 Questions We Hear Most
What strategies do you have to help me find the right property that meets my needs and budget?
Great question, and we have several strategies to help you find the right property that meets your needs and budget.
Firstly, we have an exclusive “Off Market Advantage” program, which gives you access to properties that meet your specific criteria before they hit the market. By using cutting-edge technology and traditional real estate methods, such as networking with other agents, we can find homes that are not yet listed on the market.
Additionally, we have an extensive network of agents and are constantly in the know about new properties coming onto the market. This means that we can often provide you with information about new listings before they are available to the public, giving you a better chance of finding the right property.
Working with a team also means that someone is always available to answer your questions and show you properties. We understand that the home buying process can be time-sensitive, and we don’t want you to miss out on any opportunities. While we do take some time off for vacations, weekends, and evenings, our team structure ensures that you’ll never be left waiting for a callback and potentially miss an opportunity.
How do you handle a competitive market where I may need to bid against other buyers to get the home I want?
When it comes to a competitive real estate market, our team has a few tricks up our sleeves. We make it a priority to stay connected with other agents and maintain a positive reputation in the industry. This way, when we submit an offer, it stands out from the rest.
But here’s the thing, putting in the highest offer doesn’t always guarantee that you’ll get the house. There are many other factors to consider, like the buyer’s ability to purchase, likelihood of financing, and contingencies that have been removed. That’s why it’s important for us to pick up the phone and have a conversation with the seller. Understanding their motivations and what a “win” looks like for them can give us an advantage over other agents who just submit an offer via email.
Our goal is to help you get the home you want at a fair price. Sometimes, that means getting creative and finding a way to give the seller a “win” as well. Our favorite wins are the ones where we get what we want and the seller thinks it was their idea all along.
How can you assist me in securing a mortgage with favorable terms, and what can I expect during the pre-approval process?
Absolutely. We have extensive experience working with different lenders and loan programs, which means we can assist you in finding a mortgage that meets your specific needs and budget. By working with us, you’ll have access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise that comes from helping numerous clients with various financial situations.
We have developed strong relationships with our lending partners, which means we can easily reach out to them and advocate on your behalf in case any issues arise. In addition, we believe that selecting the right lender is just as important as choosing the right agent. It’s crucial to have a lender who is willing to look at your overall financial picture and take the time to pre-qualify you, not just pre-approve you.
During the pre-approval process, you can expect us to guide you through the process, help you understand what documentation you’ll need, and answer any questions you may have. We’ll work with you and your lender to ensure that the process goes smoothly, and you’ll have the confidence of knowing that you have secured a mortgage with favorable terms. Ultimately, our goal is to help make the mortgage process as stress-free as possible and help you secure the best possible terms for your home purchase.
How do you help clients with the logistics of moving, and what can I do to prepare for this process?
Sure, moving can be a hassle, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! As a team, we’ve helped hundreds of clients move, and we know all the tricks of the trade. We can even help you get discounts with movers and pods to make the process even smoother.
To prepare for the move, we suggest starting early. If you’re moving from a rental or selling your home, start packing what you don’t need as soon as possible. It’s always a good idea to declutter your home, so if you’re moving up, getting a short-term storage unit can be a great option. On the other hand, if you’re moving down, garage sales, Facebook marketplace, and donation centers are a fantastic way to get rid of items you no longer need.
And if you need any extra help, we have vendors who specialize in this and can introduce you to them. Trust us, with our experience and resources, we’ll make sure your move is as stress-free as possible.
What steps do you take to ensure a timely closing and avoid delays or complications?
We believe that being a solo agent is similar to being a Swiss Army knife, where you may initially think you can handle everything, but eventually realize that you can’t be good at everything. Therefore, we have assembled a team of specialists who excel in areas that we may not.
Rachel is our skilled transaction coordinator who ensures that all paperwork is complete and the transaction progresses smoothly. With years of experience, she handles hundreds of contracts each year with ease.
Amie serves as our physical marketer and runner, who we can always count on to complete tasks such as notarizing documents or distributing flyers.
Eve is our expert in digital marketing and spreadsheet reporting, and is responsible for the innovative and unique features that we offer to our clients. Without Eve, we wouldn’t be able to offer these added benefits.
Our team of specialists play a crucial role in supporting our agents to deliver exceptional service, especially during busy periods. By taking care of administrative and marketing tasks, our agents are able to focus on their clients’ needs and provide personalized attention and expertise.
How do you ensure clear communication throughout the home buying process, and what are your standards for performance and customer service?
We pride ourselves on clear communication throughout the home buying process. Our clients are always our top priority, and we ensure that we are available when they need us. If one of our agents is unavailable, our team can step in to provide assistance.
We understand that the unknown can be uncomfortable, which is why we make it a priority to keep our clients informed, even when there is no “new” news to share – and that happens!. During the home buying process, you will be in contact not only with your agent, but also with our team’s transaction coordinator, whose job is to make sure every detail is checked twice.
In addition, our team sends regular emails to keep you updated on the progress of your home buying journey and to educate you on what to expect. We have systems in place to ensure that every client receives the same great experience, regardless of their unique situation.
Further we use a system for texts and calls that allows for all of our team members to be able to chime in and help.
How can you help me navigate the home inspection process, and what should I expect from it?
As a real estate team, we can provide valuable guidance during the home inspection process. We’ll help you find a reputable home inspector, who will evaluate the condition of the property and provide you with a report detailing any issues or repairs that may be needed. We’ll then review the report with you, answer any questions you may have, and help you determine which items are most important to address with the seller. We’ll also work with the seller’s agent to negotiate repairs or credits on your behalf, so you can have peace of mind knowing that the home is in good condition.
During the inspection, it’s important to remember that no home is perfect, and there may be minor issues that need to be addressed. However, we’ll help you determine which issues are deal breakers and which can be easily fixed. We’ll also educate you on what to expect during the inspection process, so you feel confident and informed throughout the entire process. Our goal is to ensure that you have a clear understanding of the condition of the property, and that you’re able to move forward with your purchase with confidence.
It’s time to write the next chapter of your story.
