MOVING TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA? CONTACT GM FOR HELP!
When relocating to a new area, you can be very overwhelmed with a lot on your mind: a different job, different schools, different church, different daily routine and of course, finding a new place for your family to call home. At GM Realty, we understand this and are experts in managing the relocation process as we have a long history of finding buyers the right home by following a refined process designed to speed up your search.
When most buyers go into home search mode – they may wind up with 50+ listings to view. Naturally, that’s too many homes to look so we help you narrow your search down to 20-25 houses by keeping these items in mind:
Send two lists a few days before arriving: One list should be of things you require in your new home. The other list should be for optional things you want which helps eliminate homes that don’t meet your needs.
Have a set price range. This could be based on loan pre-approval or a conservative estimate of how much you’ll get from the sale of your current home.
Think about drive time to work or other interests. Traffic in all these areas can be different than what you’re accustomed to, so let us know how long a commute you’re willing to undertake.
Before the in-person meeting, we will send you recommendations for possible homes that fit your criteria. You might have a list of strong possibilities culled from your own research as well. While seeing listing photos on the web is invaluable, there’s nothing like seeing homes in person. Therefore, when you come into town we will set up the necessary appointments to view the homes you are interested in, map a route and visit 8 to 10 homes in a day.
The goal is by the end of your trip, you can be relieved to know the residential areas better, have some homes you’re interested in and ideally have found the best home for your family.
