Our Commitment to Buyers
Real estate transactions involve one of the largest financial investments most people experience in their lifetime and requires the utmost skill, care and diligence to complete a smooth and successful closing. Your RE/MAX Achieve Realty agent can help you determine your buying power - that is, your financial reserves plus your borrowing capacity. If you give a us some basic information about your available savings, income and current debt, we can refer you to lenders best qualified to help you.
Your RE/MAX Achieve Realty Agent has State-of-the-Art resources and Up-to-the-Minute data to assist you in your home search. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.
Your RE/MAX Achieve Realty Agent can assist you in the selection process by providing objective information about each property. We can also can provide you with local community information such as contact information for utilities, contractores, lenders, zoning & schools, etc. Two very important things you'll want to know about a property you are interested in; First, will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell? We can help you with a detailed market anaylsis and the history of comparable properties.
Your RE/MAX Achieve Realty Agent will assist you in negotiations. There are myriad negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or equipment. The purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. We can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required.
Your RE/MAX Achieve Realty Agent provides due diligence during the evaluation of the property. Depending on the area and property, this could include inspections for termites, dry rot, asbestos, faulty structure, roof condition, septic tank and well tests, just to name a few. We can assist you in finding qualified responsible professionals to do most of these investigations and provide you with written reports. You will also want to see a preliminary report on the title of the property. Title indicates ownership of property and can be mired in confusing status of past owners or rights of access. The title to most properties will have some limitations; for example, easements (access rights) for utilities. Your RE/MAX Achieve Realty agent, title company or attorney can help you resolve issues that might cause problems at a later date.
Your RE/MAX Achieve Realty Agent can help you in understanding different financing options, identfy qualified lenders and guide you through the closing process and make sure everything flows together smoothly and successfully.
