I will provide relevant information to help you analyze current market conditions and how they affect your personal home-buying objectives and negotiation strategy. I gather information on sales of similar homes, current supply and demand cycles and property history data. The information will be discussed and explained with a review of negotiation options with your desired home buying outcome in mind.
Understanding the Documents
I am a trusted resource when understanding the variety of forms and documents involved when purchasing a home. Throughout the entire home buying process, I will counsel and guide you or refer you to the experts best suited to deal with the complexities when buying a home in the Southwest Michigan area.
For title and closing services, we have selected Chicago Title as our partner in establishing Southwest Michigan Title Agency. Chicago Title, the nation’s largest title insurance company, brought a rich 150 year history and over 7,000 offices nationally, including a location in every county in Michigan. This affiliation assures our clients that this critical aspect of the home buying transaction is in expert hands.
Once you have made a purchase decision, I work closely with you on the details of the home buying transaction. Most homebuyers elect to have a home inspection covering the structure and mechanical components, plus an inspection for wood-destroying insects. In some situations, home buyers elect to have additional inspections for environmental considerations or a detailed analysis of specific components. I can refer you to well-qualified professionals and will coordinate such inspections.
I will coordinate the pre-closing "walk-through," arrange to get the closing figures to you for your review, and schedule a convenient time to finalize the home buying transaction. If you wish, I can even represent you at the home closing to save you time or make things more convenient.
