Relocating to the Pennsylvania or Pittsburgh area
When relocating to a new city, you may have a lot on your mind: New job, new school, new church, new routines, and last but not least, finding a new place for your family to call "home". 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 end up with 50+ listings to consider. Naturally, that's too many properties to see first hand if you're limited on time! I can help you to narrow your search down to 20-25 properties, keeping these tips 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 can't fulfill your basic needs, we can cross it off the list.
- Have a predetermined price range. This could be based on loan pre-approval or a safe estimate of what you'll net from the sale of your current home.
- What length of a commute are you ready to make each day to work and other interests? Traffic in the Pittsburgh area could be different than what you're currently experiencing, so let me know your limits regarding drive-time, and I'll seek out homes within that radius.
I can send you some top recommendations before you get into town. Or you could already have some strong possibilities culled from your own research. While seeing listing photos on the web is helpful, there's nothing like seeing homes in person. I can schedule any necessary appointments with other Realtors or homeowners and map a route. We could see up to 8 or 10 homes in a single day with the proper planning.
