Relocating to the Oklahoma or Edmond area
Moving to a new area is stressful on its own, without mixing in the daunting task of shopping for a home plus finding a Realtor you can trust. At Coldwell Banker Mike Jones Company, I understand this, and I am an expert in relocation. I have a long history of finding buyers the right home by going through a very specific checklist to help you efficiently narrow your options.
When most buyers go into home search mode - they may come up with 50+ listings to view. Naturally, that's too many properties to look at if you're limited on time! I will help you to narrow your search down to 20-25 properties, with these items in mind:
- Before leaving town, write your needs into one list. Then list your wants in another. If a house comes up short on your must-haves, there's no need to even spend time looking at it.
- Know your budget. If you are getting a mortgage, know your pre-approved amount beforehand so we can eliminate homes which exceed your price range.
- Think about drive time to your job or other activities. Traffic around Edmond could be different than what you're used to, so tell me how much time you're ready to spend travelling each day.
Before we meet in person, I could send you my picks for listings we should see. Or if you've got a list of properties in mind, let me know what you've found. While seeing listing photos on the web is great, there's nothing like seeing homes in person. I can arrange any necessary appointments and map a route. We could go to up to 8 or 10 homes in a single day with the proper planning.
