When you are ready to start looking at real estate, an experienced Scottsdale Realtor in essential. She can save you lots of time and effort by customizing your search to the communities and types of homes you are interested in.
You should explain your requirements with your agent in as much detail as possible. What type of home do you want – a house or a condo? What type of community are you looking for – golf community, retirement community, close to freeways/restaurants/stores? Do you have a preferred location of North or South Scottsdale? Finally, your price range will determine how many homes meet your requirements. She should have several suggestions of what communities are within your budget and most likely to match your desires. An experienced agent knows the intricacies of neighborhoods and communities, including the type of homes available in each.
If you are out of state and not familiar with all of the communities in Scottsdale it can be especially frustrating and overwhelming. Your agent should take the bulk of the work off your shoulders and make the job of finding your new home easy. The process should be fun. Your agent should be there for you to explain each step of the process. You need to feel comfortable in her abilities to properly negotiate your deal and finalize the contract. Once you are in your inspection period, she should arrange all inspections. If you are out of state and unable to attend the inspections then your agent should attend the inspection on your behalf, relaying all information back to you. She should clearly explain all deadlines in the inspection period and contract.
I would like to consider myself a “seasoned” real estate agent in Scottsdale. With an average of over 40 transactions per year and sales of over $18 million per year, I am in the top 1% of all real estate agents in Arizona. My background as a real estate attorney has given me great negotiating and contract experience. Please feel free to contact me to start your home search or schedule an appointment to view homes in Scottsdale. I am fast, friendly and appreciate your business.
