How it Works
We work closely with your lender to determine approximately how much equity you'll be liquidating from your current home and bringing with you to your next. Your lender, armed with that information and the data you provide them about your assets and income, can then provide a purchase budget and get us a pre-approval letter.
Once you're pre-approved we can sit down and take a look at what your budget can buy you. In most markets, we can start shopping and place your home on the market at the same time, but if it's a sellers' market, then we'll want to get your property on the market first, and then start shopping.
Approved... time to sell your home and start shopping for your next home.
We get your home prepped for sale, complete with staging and inspections to better advertise and market your home to bring in qualified buyers at top price.
Once we get an offer in, then open escrow and we start shopping for your next home. It's all about timing when you are upsizing. We have many balls to keep in the air at one time that is why we have perfected a system that will always keep you informed of timelines, and insures a smooth transition.
Home Sold... now we open escrow and get ready to close the deal.
During the selling process of your current home, we will have been simultaneously taking you on tours to find your next home based on the need for more bedrooms, bathrooms, and a great family room.
The process of selling and buying your next home should not take more than 6 months, and sometimes can be done in as little as 3 months from beginning to end. Communication and cooperation are the most crucial factors in making this happen professionally, painlessly and even fun.
Could there be bumps along the way? Absolutely, but we have found that the more information we provide you with on the market conditions, the home condition, the loan process and what could possibly happen during the escrow period, the smoother the process goes.
That is what you'll get with my team and we truly pride ourselves on providing as much information as possible and guiding you throughout the process so you become a very confident and well informed buyer.
