Expert Buyer Representation
Having successfully sold hundreds of homes and condos in South Florida, we know how to locate the finest properties and negotiate the best deals. It’s our job to know about the latest market conditions, government regulations, and upcoming developments — so that you don’t have to.
As your Buyer’s Representative, we make the process of house hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. We can help you get financing, guide you to local neighborhoods, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next home. We’ll save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will show you only the most promising ones.
Once you’ve found a place that catches your eye, we’ll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a purchase offer. Then we’ll negotiate on your behalf with the seller to make sure you get the best deal and most favorable terms. It’s our job to look after your best interests, and we do all of that at no cost to you as a buyer.
Sell With Confidence, And Get The Best Price
Selling a house on your own can be an overwhelming task. There’s advertising to plan and budget for, open houses and private showings to arrange, purchase offers to negotiate, contract contingencies to worry about, and complicated paperwork to fill out. Make it easy on yourself by putting your home in the hands of seasoned professionals. We have extensive experience marketing properties and showing them to their best advantage.
First, we’ll perform a comparable market analysis to help you determine the most appropriate price for your home. Then we’ll provide home staging advice and suggest landscaping changes that will help draw buyers in. We’ll advertise your home through a variety of methods, with proven local, international and Internet marketing.
When it comes to negotiating a purchase offer, we’ll make sure that you get the best price the market will allow. We’ll help you understand contract contingencies and details of the closing process, in addition to handling all the paperwork for you. Essentially, we’re here to represent you throughout the entire selling process, and to make sure that your real estate transaction is a positive and profitable experience.
