Things to Consider

Buying your new home is a serious venture. It can be an absolute pleasure or a massive headache. Your house is not just your home; it is a serious investment in the property, the area and your future.

Your Guide

I guide my buyers to the areas that they want to live in and can afford – whether it's Sherman Oaks or Pasadena. Together, we explore what the neighborhoods and homes have to offer. I point out the strengths and weaknesses of each house and the surrounding area. Because, as your guide and Realtor, what's in your best interest is in my best interest.

Real Estate Buying Process:

  • Get a pre-approval letter from a lender.
  • Identify the neighborhood, type of property and price of property.
  • Visit open houses and schedule viewing of listings.
  • Write an offer if you like the property. Offer can be accepted, countered or rejected.
  • Upon acceptance of offer, begin inspections, appraisal and loan process.
  • Once inspections are completed, either accept property "as is", ask for credits or repairs, or back out of contract.
  • Complete large amount of paperwork for purchase, escrow and lender.
  • Prepare to move to new home (movers, change of address, utilities, etc.).
  • Near the end of escrow period, lender will send documents to escrow company. Once completed and verified, lender will fund the loan and transfer proceeds to escrow company.
  • New deed recorded at county assessor's office and property transfers.

Things to Expect:

  • Closing will be approximately 2.5-3% of the purchase price.
  • This will be a very stressful and emotional process.
  • There will be some hitch in the escrow period.
  • As your Realtor, I will be with you every step of the way.
