Relocating? Let me be your guide
Relocating to a new city is overwhelming by itself, without adding the daunting task of shopping for a place to live 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 following a refined process guaranteed to speed up your search.
When most buyers go into home search mode - they may end up with 50+ listings to see. It should go without saying that's too many properties to see first hand if you're on a short visit from out of town! 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 must have. The other should be for optional things you want. When a house can't fulfill your basic needs, we can obviously cross it off the list.
- Have a set price range. This could be based on loan pre-approval or a reasonable estimate of how much you'll get from selling your current home.
- What length of a commute are you comfortable making each day to your job and other interests? 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 accordingly.
Before we meet in person, I could send you recommendations for listings we should see. Or if you've got a list of properties in mind, let me know what you've found. While virtual tours and photos are invaluable, there's nothing like visiting homes in person. Let me set up any necessary appointments with other Realtors or homeowners and map a route. By planning ahead, we could go to 8 to 10 homes in a single day.
