Moving to the Raleigh area?
When moving to a new town, you may have an overwhelming amount of things on your mind: New job, new school, new church, new routines, and of course, finding a new place for your family to live.
At David Johnson, I understand this, and I am an expert in relocation. I have a long history of finding buyers the right home by going through a very specific checklist to help you efficiently narrow your options.
When most buyers go into home search mode - they may come up with 50+ listings to view. Naturally, that's too many homes to look at if you're on a short visit from out of town! I can help you to narrow your search down to a couple dozen properties, with these tips in mind:
Before you get here, send me a couple of lists: 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 eliminate it from the list.
Know your budget. If you are going to get a home loan, secure your pre-approved amount prior to seeing listings so we can eliminate homes out of your budget.
How long of a commute are you comfortable making each day to work and other interests? Traffic in the Raleigh area could be different than what you're currently experiencing, so let me know your expected drive-time, and I'll seek out homes based on my knowledge of drive times in the area.
Before we meet in person, I could send you recommendations for properties we should see first.
Or you might already have some favorite listings as a result of your own research.
While virtual tours and photos are helpful, there's nothing like walking through homes in person. Let me set up any necessary appointments and map a route. If we work efficiently, we could go to 8 or 10 homes in a single day.
My objective is to see to it that by the end of your trip, you can be comfortable in the knowledge you've found the best home for your family. Call me today at 919-833-6157 to being your home search.
