What’s the process to buy or sell property?
San Francisco is a fast moving competitive real estate market. My job as a Realtor is to focus your energy and provide information to facilitate your decisions. As we team, you’ll arrive at a time when you know the property that is right for you. It’s your ability to say yes with confidence that forms the basis from which we can negotiate a win win contract.
Since properties are bought and sold in San Francisco on average of ten to fourteen days of coming onto the MLS, selling or buying a property with a Realtor brings deep benefits. I’m here answers to questions, offer introductions professionals in my network of financial institutions, inspectors or trades people, or legal advisors depending on your situation. I commit to being present for your process and you're in charge of decisions.
Here's an outline of three stage process. Each transaction has unique parameters, pages of disclosures, variable prices, and contractual documents. Let's team to ensure you're prepared to make informed decisions.
Stage 1 - Ask
As your agent, I have a fiduciary duty of honesty, care, accountability, confidentiality and integrity. I welcome your questions. When you ask questions and I answer them, you learn to navigate the market and gather the necessary information to refine your search until your vision is transformed into reality.
Stage 2 - Prepare
Real estate deals involve disclosures, contracts, terms, contingencies, and escrow. Each word or phrase represents a distinct process, documents and time frames. The particulars are as numerous and individual as the people I serve. I find preparation reduces stress that arises from the complex, dynamic and fast paced San Francisco market.
San Francisco is a sea of micro climates with variable interior/exterior designs, walk scores and floor plans. I have a measured and strategic methodology to prepare, negotiate and win on your behalf. I promise to aid your understanding and define the steps to achieve your goals. For instance, as buyer, we’ll review disclosures, research answers to questions, obtain a pre-approval letter, provide proof of funds for the down payment, establish contractual terms, DocuSign a contract, negotiate for your win, ratify an offer, remove contingencies and close escrow. As a Seller, we’ll prepare and market your property. I will schedule inspections, offer suggestions on improvements to make, obtain bids, oversee the completion of work, and answer questions you may have as you fill out the required seller disclosures. After showing your home on tours, I’ll negotiate for the highest best price, ratify an offer and close escrow.
Stage 3 - Execute
After we establish the framework during the ask and prepare stages, this becomes the foundation used to execute a contract. As you write or review offers and negotiate obstacles inevitably arise.
As your agent, I listen for the opportunity inside the problem. Then, team with you to define alternative actions and working solutions. I then negotiate, as if your money were my own. And, I manage the transaction to maximize your success.
