Buying

Buying a home can be easy and fun. We handle the details, give you advice, recommendations and execute for you along the way. You just focus on making the decisions that are right for you.

Our 7 steps to becoming a homeowner.
  1. Find, negotiate and secure the right home for you
  2. Inspect the heck out of the home. (we will tell you what due diligence we would perform)
  3. Negotiate from those inspections
  4. Make final decisions on your loan and homeowners insurance
  5. Arrange utilities for the day of closing
  6. Sign closing documents
  7. SMILE – you own a home

Not only is buying easy, it’s never too early to talk with me about your thoughts. I’m happy to help you a year or more before you ever buy.

If you are just exploring and/ or want to do some deep diving on due diligence we appreciate you stopping by. To say thanks we want to share some helpful buyer links that might be useful to you.

 

JUST LISTED: 11901 Swearingen #5

This spacious 2 story, 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath condo in the Reflections community features wood floors in the living room with a cozy gas fireplace, tile in the dining and kitchen areas, and carpet in the bedrooms.  The large windows and natural light coupled with the vaulted ceilings make this home seem larger than its 1,042 square feet.

The layout is highly functional with two generously-sized bedrooms with their own private bathrooms upstairs.  There’s abundant closet space, and the laundry room is conveniently located on the 1st floor near the kitchen.

The home also has the benefit of a private back patio accented by a mature blooming rose bush.  The patio opens to green space and walking trails, with access to the community pool and hot tub.  The well-maintained community and mature trees make this a warm and welcoming place to call home.

Offered at $149,900, this is a great property for first-time homeowners or investors.  Conveniently located in North Austin near the Domain — which many think will become Austin’s 2nd downtown — this area is on track to see noticeable appreciation in the coming years.  Easy access to Mopac and the Walnut Creek Park are a bonus.
