For Buyers- How can I help you buy a home?
I can make the process of buying a new property easier, more enjoyable, less time consuming and less expensive than it would be if you performed it alone. As a life long resident of Pittsburgh, I know neighborhood values well, so I may help you determine which properties are priced fairly and in good condition before you begin your search,including Upper St. Clair, Fox Chapel, O'Hara, Aspinwall,Adams Twp,Pine Twp, Richland, Marshall, Franklin Park, Cranberry. We will work together to find the right property for you. In our initial consultation, we will determine your preferences for location, style of home and the amount you are willing to invest in your purchase. I recommend obtaining a certificate of pre-qualification for a mortgage loan at this early stage. It will help you to focus on homes in an appropriate price range, and will strengthen your bargaining position when you find the home you with to purchase. I have the best possible resources and communication systems,Hanna Homefinder ,available to help you locate the properties of your choice on the market. I will also access my local MLS to find homes that meet your criteria and post to your email directly. Finally, we will select a home. I will help you complete financing and inspections, and close on the transaction. I will save you time, money and effort at each step of the process!
For Sellers - Pricing Competively
Why not just price your home as high as you think you possibly can? At any point in time, there will be several homes for sale in your market, and you need a competitive pricing strategy in place. Realistic pricing means you will catch the peak of the buyer-interest wave and capitalize on the first few weeks of high activity and interest. Pricing effectively will create more buyer prospects, increase the percentage of receiving higher offers, minimize the inconvenience of keeping your home ready to show, and accomplish a faster sale. Find out what your home is worth in today's market, for free! I will prepare a Competitive Market Analysis(CMA) to determine the current market value of your home, and will discuss with you my state of the art marketing technology to maximize buyer interest! Competitive pricing and leading marketing technology means a faster sale!
