Let Us Do The Work! We’ll Help You Relocate!
When relocating to a new town, you may have an overwhelming amount of things on your mind: New job, new school, new church, new routines, and last but not least, finding a new place for your family to live. We understand this, and are experts in relocation. We have a long history of assisting out of town buyers with their home search by going through a very specific checklist to help you efficiently narrow your options.
When most buyers go into home search mode – they may wind up with 50+ listings to consider. Naturally, that’s too many houses to look at if you’re limited on time! We will help you to narrow your search down to 20-25 houses, with these tips in mind:
Send us two lists a few days before arriving: One should be of things you require in your new home. The other should be for optional things you want. When a house doesn’t even meet your needs, we can take it out of the list.
Know your budget. If you are getting a mortgage, have your pre-approved amount in advance so we can eliminate homes beyond your price range.
How long of a commute are you ready to make each day to your job and other interests? Traffic in the Des Moines area could be different than your current location, so tell us your limits regarding drive-time, and we’ll seek out homes based on our knowledge of drive times in the area.
Before we meet in person, we can send you recommendations for possible homes. Or you may already have some strong possibilities based on your own research. While virtual tours and photos are invaluable, there’s nothing like walking through homes in person. We can schedule any necessary appointments with other Realtors or homeowners and map a route. We could visit up to 8 or 10 homes in a single day with the proper planning.
Our focus is to do everything we can so that by the time you leave town, you can be rest assured you’ve found the best home for your family. Call us today at 515-998-2568 to being your home search.
