The Home search

Once I have gotten to know you and your housing needs from our initial meeting, we can start the fun of the home search. I like to take clients out to do some exploring, during which you can look at various neighborhoods and learn about the different types and conditions of homes on the market. By the end of that tour, we will both have a good idea of what you are looking for in a home.

The internet is a powerful househunting resource, and the Windermere website has some useful tools that we can use to collaborate in internet househunting. One of the first things I do when starting to work with a new buyer is to get them set up to receive listings via email. When we settle on neighborhoods and price range, I will first send you an email that contains every current listing on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) that meets your criteria. After that, you will receive notification every day when new listings come on the market. If you are someone who enjoys exploring the internet listings on your own, you can sign up with my website to save home searches, save your favorite listings that you can send to me, and even sign up for RSS feeds on your searches.

Some clients want to tour almost every home that looks appealing, and some would rather I tour them first to narrow down the options to the best ones. As a full time agent, I work around your schedule and will do as much or as little advance legwork as you want. Regardless of how many homes you tour in person, I will accompany you and use my expertise to point out all of the positive and negative attributes of the home. The key in the fast-paced Seattle market is to see homes quickly as they hit the market, and the daily listing notifications ensure that you and I always have the latest information at our fingertips.
