Making An Offer
In a previous post we discussed utilizing your REALTOR® to escort you through your showing lists until you have seen and examined in detail a sufficient number of homes in various neighborhoods so that you can narrow your focus to your top 3 or 4 choices.
In this phase of the home search process having a skilled professional REALTOR® can pay huge dividends in not only financial terms but also in peace of mind and confidence.
that most home shoppers choose to utilize the services a REALTOR®, due to the efficiency and knowledge that they can bring to the table. Your REALTOR® will have access through the lock-box system to all of the homes listed on the North Alabama MLS, as well homeowner contact, special property details, and showing information.
In addition their local market, area, and neighborhood knowledge will be invaluable to you, as you visit and evaluate the homes on your showing-list. Some REALTOR® teams, like our own, also have extensive online tools for clients that can automate much of the information gathering process, so the earlier you establish a customer relationship the more assistance and services your REALTOR® can bring to bare in support of your effort.
If you are relocating your REALTOR® will also likely include a tour of area attractions, schools, and employment centers along with visiting your showing-list homes.
After you’ve done a few of these showing tours you will want to begin narrowing your showing-list into a short-list and begin exploring pricing and offer strategies. The next post in this series will elaborate on this phase further.
