Moving to a new city is stressful on its own, without mixing in the daunting task of finding a place to live in addition to finding the right Realtor. At Yates Nobles, I understand 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. Naturally, that's too many houses to look at if you're limited on time! I will help you to narrow your search down to a couple dozen houses, keeping these things in mind:
- Send me two lists a few days before arriving: One should be of things you require in your new home. The other should be for optional things you want. When a house can't fulfill your basic needs, we can take it out of the list.
- Know your budget. If you are going to get a home loan, secure your pre-approved amount prior to seeing listings so we can eliminate homes out of your price range.
- What length of a commute are you willing to make each day to your job and other interests? Traffic in the Charlottesville area could be different than your current location, so tell me your limits regarding drive-time, and I'll seek out homes based on my knowledge of drive times in the area.
I can send you some top recommendations before we meet in person. Or if you've got a list of properties in mind, let me know what you've found. While seeing listing photos on the web is great, there's nothing like seeing homes in person. I can arrange any necessary appointments with other Realtors or homeowners and map a route. If we work efficiently, we could see 8 to 10 homes in a single day.
My goal is to do everything I can so that by the end of your visit, you can be comfortable in the knowledge you've found the best home for your family. Call me today at 434-996-0888 to launch your home search.
