We know there’s a good chance your home search is starting online, perhaps right here and right now! Our goal is to provide you with the most relevant market data and up to date listings.
Most buyers begin with searching Zillow or Trulia. However, these sites really aren’t reliable search sites, rather they are marketing sites that capture your information and provide it to those who pay to advertise. In fact, in many cases, they only provide a portion of the active listings because sites like these are no longer receiving data from local MLS organizations.
We encourage our buyers to look beyond these websites and get access to 100% of the listings available on the MLS.
The Smarter Agent Application
We recommend the Smarter Agent application. This will give you your own password protected search with real time property alerts and accurate MLS data in a user friendly app putting everything you need to stay ahead of this market right at your fingertips!
How much can I afford?
Online shopping for homes can be addicting, we completely understand! But, don’t make the detrimental error of searching before you get in touch with a reputable lender! Before searching for properties, it is incredibly important to sit down with a lender and go over your financial goals as well as determining your purchasing power. You wouldn’t start shopping for a car without an idea of what you could, and felt comfortable, affording, would you? The same goes for buying a house. Knowing what your limits are and what you feel comfortable spending will help you narrow down your search and set you up for success in your purchase. Above and beyond that, you’ll be prepared to jump when you find the home of your dreams. Financed offers will pre-approval letters stand a far greater chance of being accepted than those without!
