Buying a Home
Buying a Home
With our personalized service, area expertise and advanced technology, buying your dream home is easier than ever.
We're Real Estate Experts
From north to south and everywhere in between, we've got the entire real estate market covered.
Client Satisfaction Means Everything to Us
Our success and longevity are based on happy customers. Our emphasis is on acting as your real estate consultant, not just on selling you a house.
Advanced Technology Gives You the Edge
With our sophisticated technology, listing information is updated every minute. This means that you're the first to know about new listings and price changes.
Save Time AND Money Buying a New Home
Our in-depth market knowledge can help you save thousands. And our streamlined, paperless process saves you time when your to-do list is already overflowing.
Step 1: Talk with a Realtor
The first step in buying your dream home is to talk with an experienced realtor. We have more than 17 years of real estate experience, giving us the knowledge and expertise you need to find the home that's right for you.
The real estate market offers a wide variety of choices: from oceanfront properties to city condos to suburban family homes. We take a consultative approach to help you discover the best locations and property types that match your lifestyle and budget.
In addition to offering highly personalized service, our team of California and Idaho real estate experts can help you save thousands on your purchase through our specialized negotiating techniques.
Step 2: Search for Homes
Our advanced technology gives you access to the latest data about homes for sale. With listing information updated every minute, you’re among the first to discover new properties as they come on the market. You can also quickly learn about any price changes and pending sales.
In addition to searching for properties using your own search parameters, we also watch the market closely, alerting you immediately to any new homes that match your criteria.
Whether you’re a first-time buyer, seeking a larger home or looking to downsize, our comprehensive listing service is a single source for your real estate search.
Step 3: Preview Homes
When you find some homes that capture your interest, it’s time to take a closer look. Our system makes it easy to preview potential properties from any computer or mobile device. This gives you the flexibility to view the latest properties no matter where you are.
Most listings include extensive photography and even video tours, providing you with a good overview of each listed property without having to drive around town to see each one.
You can mark your favorite listings to watch, schedule home tours and hide the properties you’ve ruled out so you don’t waste time previewing them again.
Step 4: Negotiate
When you find the home that’s “the one,” it’s time to make an offer. In a competitive real estate market, it can be tricky to strike a balance between offering too little and losing a home you want to call your own and overpaying for that same property.
That’s where the advice of an experienced real estate professional with current, in-depth knowledge of the ever-changing real estate market is invaluable.
Our local market expertise helps you craft the best offer possible, make it stand out among other offers (critical when there are multiple bidders vying for the same home) and get accepted by the seller.
Step 5: Close the Deal
Once you find the perfect home and your offer is accepted, we realize that you still have a lot to do. To lighten your growing to-do list, we offer an electronic, paperless closing process. This way, you can review and sign your real estate documents when it’s convenient for you, in the comfort of your own home.
In addition, we manage the entire closing process for you: coordinating title and escrow requirements, getting disclosures signed, hiring inspectors and consulting with you on inspection results and negotiating any seller repairs. Not only does this give you peace of mind, but also more time to focus on what you really need to do — prepare to move into your new home.
