We know what you’re probably thinking – Sounds good, prove it.
No Problem: Not only do we routinely talk people out of buying for many reasons, we think it’s better to take a little longer to makes sure you end up in the right place than regret buying too soon later. These are just a couple of the reasons why our buyer clients hire us to sell when they’re ready.
Our Construction Background Really Helps: There are a lot of old buildings in this city, and many of them have serious issues. Aside from our Broker being a former owner of a national construction supply business, we have bought many old buildings and rehabbed them so we know exactly what to look for.
Because of this experience we frequently talk buyers out of making a purchase with the idea that it’s better to wait than buy something with issues than wish you had. We can also get you contractor referrals and estimates on repairs/upgrades to make you be much more informed that when working with most other agents.
We Look Beyond What Works for You Now. What are Your Goals? What’s Your Exit Plan? Are There Any Potential Big Life Changes Coming Up? (wedding, baby, move for a job, etc…)
Most agents look at comps and advise you on current pricing, but there’s a lot more to it if you want to invest wisely:
- How long do you plan to be in the property? This has a big impact on how you should approach your purchase.
- Do you plan to have kids? If so, it makes sense to buy a place that you won’t have to immediately move from to avoid having to sell in short term market fluctuations.
- We dive deep into your particular life situation so we can best advise you on if, how, when, and where to purchase. That’s right – sometimes we advise people not to buy at all.
Wider Search Area: We also work in the East Bay, Marin, and the Peninsula so if you decide to look outside the city you can do it seamlessly with one team.
These are just a few of the things we do better. And we even have better rates, too.
