Buying a home

Thinking about buying a home in Tucson?

Buying a home can seem like a daunting process. There’s more to it than finding a house you love, that’s the easy part. A lot has changed in the last few years and we will explain the process every step of the way.

Buying a home in Tucson

The 7 ways we help you buy a home

1. Consultation

First thing’s first, let’s sit down (in person or virtually by conference call) to discuss your situation, because every person and situation is different. we find that if we learn in the beginning what your goals are, it makes the process of finding the perfect property for you more efficient and less frustrating for you. You wouldn’t hire a painter to paint a wall if they refuse to do the patching, sanding, and taping first, right? The same idea applies to buying a home. A little prep work makes a big difference down the road.

“My experience of working with Nick topped my expectations! I was looking to purchase a house in Tucson while living in the East Coast, and I was looking for a property with some architectural interest. Nick’s knowledge of architecture and his interest in it provided expertise I was looking for.

I am a pretty demanding person, and so I was very happy to find how responsive Nick was, he truly made me feel like I was his only client! He spent a lot of time showing me properties until I found the one I liked, and he was extremely helpful during the negotiations and the buying process – something I particularly appreciated since I did not buy a house in 20+ years! He was a perfect guide through the whole process, professional, knowledgeable, kind and friendly. I recommend him wholeheartedly! “

2. Qualification

Not only finding out how much loan you qualify for, but how much of a loan are you comfortable with taking on. Pre-qualifying is a must in the current market. It allows us to be ready for when we find the property you love, so you don’t miss out to another buyer who is better prepared. We can provide you a referrals to fantastic lenders we’ve had great experiences with for the smoothest transaction.

“Nick made our home buying experience very smooth and effortless. He was very thorough, everything that came up he had already explained as a possibility. There were no surprises! I would highly recommend him! “

– Rich and Sabrina

3. Screening

We’ll assist in helping you pinpoint wants or needs of your next home and weed out non-applicable properties. I’ve seen tons of homes and neighborhoods throughout the Tucson area, so we may have some suggestions for you based off your criteria that you weren’t aware of.

4. Showing

Prior to showing, we will confirm with sellers that the home sellers haven’t accepted an offer. We don’t want to waste our time viewing homes that have already gone under contract.

Because we’ve seen countless Tucson homes, we can be a great resource for you. During the showing process, you may realize that some of your wants and needs should be refined. It’s okay, it’s a normal part of the process.

“Nick was very informative, very thorough, and made good use of my compressed schedule. Very professional yet really passionate about helping the client.”

5. Negotiation

This is a critical service we provide. Once we find the right home for you, we help you to be strategic with the offer in the current market. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy, we counsel clients on the best approach for your situation and the present market conditions.

6. Managing the Transaction

We manage your transaction all the way through, from submitting an offer to helping you understand the contract to scheduling inspections, to confirming the mortgage and title work is on track, all the way through to the final walk-through.

One of the most important aspects for getting to the closing is being diligent with timelines and deadlines. In short, the deal won’t get closed if deadlines are missed. It’s our job to make sure everyone is on schedule.

We work with vendors who have proven track records and great communication.

7. Communication

We make a commitment to communicate throughout the entire process. We are constantly updating our clients with what is currently happening with the sale. In fact, by the end of the transaction, you might get tired of hearing from us.

We specialize in unique properties, vintage homes, and historic houses. But what is truly important to us is finding the right house for your needs.
