Moving to the Pittsburgh area?
Moving to a new city is fraught with enough problems, without considering the daunting task of shopping for a home plus 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 following a refined process to help make the most of your search efforts.
When relocating, you often don't have the luxury of looking at every home on the market. Most likely, you'll get see a couple dozen, so narrow down your list first thing with these tips:
- Before leaving town, put your needs into one list. Then list the things you simply want in another. If a house comes up short on your must-haves, it's one less house to look at.
- Know your budget. If you are going to get a home loan, know your pre-approved amount in advance so we can eliminate homes beyond your budget.
- How long of a commute are you comfortable making each day to work and other activities? Traffic in the Pittsburgh area could be different than what you're currently experiencing, so tell me your limits regarding drive-time, and I'll seek out homes based on my knowledge of drive times in the area.
Before we meet in person, I could send you my picks for possible homes. Or you might already have some strong possibilities culled from your own research. While virtual tours and photos are great, there's nothing like touring homes in person. I can schedule any necessary appointments and map a route. If we work efficiently, we could visit 8 to 10 homes in a single day.
