“If you don’t know where you’re going … you’ll probably end up somewhere else.” Taken from a book title, thisquote conveys a very simple message: To achieve an objective, create a plan!

If you plan to buy a home soon, you will need to know “where you are going.” For a most enjoyable home-buying experience, first build a road map to your new home, a list of priorities that will lead you to your objective—a new home!

The first priority is time frame.
Write down the date by which you would like to move in to your new home: ________________
Keep in mind that it may take 30-90 days (or more) to locate the right home, secure financing, and complete the home-buying process.

The next priority is to develop a detailed description of the home you hope to find.

Write down your Home Search Criteria  to help you distinguish between “Need to Have” features and “Want to Have” features. Be specific. Include architectural style, number of bedrooms and baths, location, lot size, and other special requirements. Number your preferences in order of greatest importance to you.

Give this information to your Realtor (Janna & Jerry Burton) on your initial consultation, it will enable them to narrow your home search. We will take this information and enter your requirements into the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system, and then use personal market knowledge to come up with a list of homes that best meet your needs and wants.
During the home search, your real estate agent (Jerry Burton) will:
􀂃 Discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each home in relation to your specific needs.
􀂃 Keep you informed on a regular basis.
􀂃 Check the MLS database and talk with other brokers regularly for new listings.
􀂃 Prepare a list of all homes that best meet your needs and wants.
􀂃 Keep you up to date on changing financial conditions that may affect the housing marketing.
􀂃 Be available to answer your questions or offer assistance regarding your home purchase.
􀂃 Discuss market trends and values relative to properties that interest you.

Of course, all of this is FREE to you. They (Jerry) will set you up with your own web site of available homes that match your search criteria. If you like the home, mark it as one of your favorites, if not....just trash it. The site allows you to view pictures,virtual tours, maps the location, shows what's in the area and lots of other information. Best of all, the site will send you any new listing that matches your search criteria the same day it's listed.
