A Word For Buyers from Mari Armstrong and Norm Rheaume
What do you see when you visualize your dream home? I ask you this because it’s important that we see the same dream.
I realize the very best way to assist my real estate buyers is to locate precisely the right home is to put myself into my buyer clients’ shoes. You can begin to experience my "it's all about you" service by giving me your "must have" list and put me to work. I’ll jump right in with targeted searches and email alerts to put you in charge of your home buying process.
It takes more than a trained real estate agent to understand the needs and concerns of buyer clients. It takes someone who has been there. It takes someone who has the same concerns when they’re home shopping.
I don’t want to minimize the technical aspects of the home buying process though. Every year it becomes more complex. Between government legislation, environmental laws, mortgage documentation requirements and the legal aspects of a home purchase, the homebuyer must be on top of all aspects of the process or be helped by a professional that knows how to navigate the maze.
I'm here to assist buyers in this ever-changing Grand Strand real estate market, and I am really good at my job. There’s plenty to do such as:
Search Assistance - Automated Search Reports
I help my buyers understand the many fields of information in a listing search. I guide them in making the most of searches through the thousands of listings. Once I have an idea of your criteria for a home selection, I can set up automated search alert emails to keep you informed of new listings and price reductions of qualified properties on a daily basis. You will receive updated listing information as quickly as I receive it.
Financing Assistance - Price Negotiations
As tough as it can be these days to get a mortgage, I know the best sources in our real estate markets and will help you to contact mortgage professionals who have been very helpful to my past clients. Buyers shouldn’t walk into a deal unarmed. I arm you with market data to help you understand the buyer and seller sides and formulate an offer price negotiation strategy. I have a list of preferred lenders who have an excellent track record for assisting buyers with "challenges" as well as those with an excellent credit history and everyone in between.
Inspections & Repair Negotiations - Contract to Closing
Price isn’t the only negotiation, as there will be property inspections and you may need to enter into more negotiating around property condition and repairs. I am an expert at this. The myriad of tasks, documents and delivery deadlines involved in a real estate transaction are all coordinated by the Attorney and me together, working for you. From title insurance to surveys, termite inspection and mortgage documents, I am here to help every step of the way.
