Buy

Could I purchase a home on my own? Absolutely, anyone with the time, skills, knowledge, and resources can complete most any task. However, when dealing with high dollar value transactions, as any home would be, you will want an expert to guide you through the process and assist you in making the right selection.

We provide an Unbiased Analysis to determine a fair asking price in San Antonio. We are with you through EVERY step of the Home Buying Process and provide insight others may overlook. Our REALTORS® will Narrow the Field based upon your criteria and our market knowledge. Ultimately, we will find the right home for you.

UNBIASED ANALYSIS: Our analysis involves many aspects. It’s not just the obvious factors such as the School District, but other things such as the lot location within the neighborhood affecting the resale value, future annexation projections increasing taxes, when to sell to realize a higher resale price, and many more factors. We look at the entire picture and price correctly the first time to sell at the highest price in the least amount of time.

HOME BUYING PROCESS: The first step in the Home Buying process is to find out how much you can afford. This is done by finding a lender of your choice and getting Pre-Approved. On rare occasions, buyers pay cash. In these instances, we will still assist you in determining expenses such as property taxes and utilities. We’ll be with you every step of the way through the entire process.

NARROW THE FIELD: We will find prospects falling within your criteria and desires. Once a potential home is located, then we will work hand-in-hand to submit the offer. There is a process and strategy to submitting offers and our REALTORS® will be there to guide you. Upon acceptance of the offer, our REALTORS® will track each task (e.g., Home Inspection) until closing.

The Buying Process is a financial and emotional ride, but it’s worth it in the end. We’ll provide professional, timely service to ease your way to your new home.
