Daniel was such an incredible real estate worker. He helped us find just the right home, was professional and friendly and it was an all around positive experience. He was thorough, down to earth and he made the process of buying a home fun—something I wasn’t at all expecting. I’d recommend him without hesitation.Jenny Snyder
Why buy with me?
I focus on results for individual clients, not total volume of sales. I consider it an honor to facilitate your real estate purchase, and will always treat you with the respect and professionalism that you deserve. I will work to make sure you are well informed and get the most out of your home buying experience.
Getting Ready to Buy
It’s always a good time to start planning for your purchase. There are many pervasive myths about who can or can’t buy a home, but the truth is that many people who don’t think that home ownership is an option are discovering that it is an attainable goal. With a little bit of help along the way, you too may be able to buy the property you’ve been dreaming of. Whatever you’re looking for, I am happy to help you create a clear step by step path towards achieving your goal. You might be closer than you think. Contact me to schedule a consultation toady!
Understanding the Market
An important part of my job is client education. I am always happy to take the time to discuss what’s happening in the real estate world, nationally, regionally, and locally. Santa Fe’s housing market is as unique as the City itself! Since this is my full time career, staying up to date on current market trends is essential to my success. Sharing pertinent market analysis and insight is one of the ways I help my Buyers make informed decisions and move forward with confidence on their purchases.
Making an Offer
After the appropriate preparation, we will start looking at possible properties. When you find the right property, it’s time to make an offer. The basic Purchase Agreement in NM is at least 18 pages long, but can grow to more than 50 pages, depending on the property and the terms being offered. Now more than ever, it is important to have a knowledgeable professional on your team to help make sure your best interests are being served. I strive to help clients understand the offer process before putting pen to the paper. This way they can feel informed and protected when the time comes.
Once an offer is negotiated and accepted, the Buyer and Seller are “Under Contract.” What this period will look like is dependent on the accepted terms of the Purchase Agreement. Inspections, appraisals, title work, and securing the funding all happen during this period. Sometimes it’s smooth sailing, other times it can be a bumpy road. While continuing to serve my client’s best interests, I work diligently to keep things running smoothly. I do this by keeping an open line of communication and helping coordinate efforts between all parties involved in getting the deal closed.
Daniel was great through my whole home-buying experience. He knew how to put me at ease and took a lot of stress out of the process.He was always available and really understood where I was coming from and where I wanted to go.Pablo Champion
