Information for Buyers

Charleston has become one of the most desirable areas in the country. It has been voted the Number 1 city in the country by Condé Nast for the last five years! It's an exciting and rewarding situation, with beautiful historic homes in excellent condition, new luxury developments, and family residences with lasting value and appeal.

Searching for a home

Due to the varied and unique options this area offers, buyers sometimes have a difficult time zeroing in on the home or property that is uniquely appropriate for their needs.

Search for homes

Just remember: Browsing the listings for months is one way to search out the deals, but weighing the investment potential of each property can be difficult, and many homes for sale are never listed publicly.

The Home Buying Process

As you begin to think about buying a home, you're probably acutely aware that this is likely to be your greatest investment ever (short of children or a good marriage), and you might be wondering if there's anything you really need to know as you go into this process. This is where I come in. With the help of a trained agent, you can come out on top of a closing that nets your dream home for a good value.

If you'd like to know about the home buying process, I'd love to tell you all about it. Contact me!

New homes for sale hit the market daily. As your representative, I'll be in regular contact with sellers and other real estate agents to ensure you see all the newest listings right away, whether or not they're made public. Often, my clients can put in offers with little or no competition and walk away with an impressive deal on the property of their choice. I will also make sure you see only the properties that meet your needs and investment preferences, so that you don't spend time on listings that aren't of interest. As you compare the best deals, I'll provide you with important information about the home, its neighborhood, zoning issues, utilities, and nearby plans for development.

Many real estate transactions include an extensive negotiating process, and as your agent it will be my job to represent you and get the best deal possible. I'll also attend property inspections, make sure any and all agreed-on repair work is carried out, and handle paperwork related to the sale. I will also help set up the financing for your investment, and work directly with you to provide a seamless service package.

Working with a dedicated agent on your next home purchase will save you time and add professional assurance to every step of the process. My passion is helping people find their perfect home, and I'd love to help you find yours. To find out more, please contact me whenever you'd like.
