Buying Process – What to Expect
When buying a home, having an agent with a deep knowledge of the local markets is of primary importance. Elizabeth Winterbottom knows the ins and outs of every street and neighborhood of the towns she covers–she knows about the schools, transportation, parking, dining, recreation and is up to date on local developments.
Elizabeth Winterbottom provides buyers with everything they need to make well-informed decisions. Almost as important, Elizabeth and her team will make buying a home in our area fun. Buying a new home is exciting! Let us do the work, so you and your family can enjoy your new home.
Whether in person or over the phone, we will discuss your ideal home, dream neighborhood, school particulars and commute criteria. Tell me what you are looking for and I will focus on your needs to help you find a fabulous home.
I will put together a list of properties that meet your criteria for you to review. Once you have had a chance to go over them, you can let me know what properties are of interest so I can start to get an idea of exactly what you are looking for.
My team will take care of setting up all appointments and I will meet you to show you the homes you have chosen as well as a few additional homes I may recommend. Your schedule is “the” schedule and I will make sure that each time we meet to see properties, it is a pleasant, worthwhile and stress-free experience.
Once you have fallen in love with a home, I will draw up a contract with the terms we decide on and present your offer to the seller’s agent. Then I will work as an intermediary to help you negotiate the contract. This critical part of the process is where my negotiation skills and experience will work for you to get you the house you want for the best price and terms.
Once you have bought your home, our relationship does not end. I field calls from clients all the time looking for local service recommendations, to help them decide how to best allocate renovation dollars and anything else that you might need. I am available all the time and LOVE hearing from my clients.
