Relocating? Let me be your guide
Relocating to a new city is overwhelming by itself, without mixing in the daunting task of shopping for a place for your family in addition to finding the right Realtor. 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 most buyers go into home search mode - they may wind up with 50+ listings to see. It should go without saying that's too many properties to see first hand if you're limited on time! I will help you to narrow your search down to 20-25 houses, keeping these things in mind:
- Send me two lists a few days before arriving: One should be of things you require in your new home. The other should be for optional things you want. When a house doesn't even meet your needs, we can naturally eliminate it from the list.
- Know your budget. If you are getting a mortgage, have your pre-approved amount in advance so we can eliminate homes beyond your price range.
- Take into account drive time to your job or other interests. Traffic in the Pittsburgh area could be different than what you're accustomed to, so tell me how much time you're ready to spend travelling each day.
I can send you my best recommendations before we meet in person. Or you could already have some strong possibilities 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. Let me set up any necessary appointments with other Realtors or homeowners and map a route. We could visit up to 8 or 10 homes in a single day if we work efficiently.
