Moving to the Pittsburgh area?
Relocating to a new area is overwhelming by itself, without mixing in the daunting task of shopping for a home in addition to finding a Realtor you can trust. At Hanley Agency, Inc., I understand this, and I am an expert in relocation. I have a long history of finding buyers the right home by going through a very specific checklist to help you efficiently narrow your options.
When relocating, you probably won't have the luxury of looking at every home on the market. Most likely, you'll get tour 20 to 25, so pare down your list first thing with these tips:
- Before leaving town, arrange your needs into one list. Then write your wants in another. If a home comes up short on your must-haves, it's one less house to look at.
- Have an established price range. This could be based on mortgage or a safe estimate of how much you'll get from the sale of your current home.
- Consider drive time to work or other activities. Traffic around Pittsburgh could be different than what you're accustomed to, so let me know how long a commute you're willing to undertake.
I can send you some best recommendations before you get into town. Or you could already have some favorite listings you could share with me culled from your own research. While seeing listing photos on the web is helpful, there's nothing like touring homes in person. I can schedule any necessary appointments and map a route. By planning ahead, we could visit 8 or 10 homes in a single day.
