FOR SELLERS

You may access the Multiple Listing Service of San Francisco (MLS) by clicking on this link below.

Under "Public Access" choose "Find Properties".

 

Then, under "Property Search", note that there are pop up menus for "Districts" and "Subdistricts", for example, District 7 includes the "subdistricts" of Marina, Pacific Heights, Presidio Heights and Cow Hollow.

 

By just selecting the District, the search will include all of these neighborhoods. If you want to select one or more but not all of the neighborhoods, click on the magnifying icon below "Districts" and you will get a pop up window with checkboxes for all the neighborhoods from which you may choose only those of interest to you.

Buying real estate can also be an enjoyable hunt and very rewarding, and also a bit stressful.

Together we focus on the hunt and the reward.

 

I help you to navigate through the process to achieve your real estate goal, whether  to help you find your new home, or perhaps an investment property.

 

Providing powerful search tools and proactive previews, I can help you get into contract in this challenging market.

 

Buying can be adventurous and enjoyable, yet frustrating in a seller’s market.

  • Initial Meeting

    During the first meeting, I listen to your requirements, share my marketing strategy and walk you through the buying process.

    Pre-Approval… This is critical so that you can manage your expectations realistically and know what you can afford.

    If you are not already preapproved, I will provide you with lenders names to help you find a good fit.  They will determine what loan programs may be available to you and suggest programs that meet your short and long term plans. They will provide you with a pre-approval letter, mandatory in today’s competitive environment when presenting an offer.

  • Finding your new home...the hunt...

    Together we work to find your new home. I provide you with automatic notification when properties that match your criteria hit the market.  You will know instantly as soon as they go live on the MLS.

    I preview selected properties for you on broker tour, meet with you at Sunday open houses and arrange private appointments, whatever is most convenient for you.

  • Making an Offer

    Once we have found the home that fits your criteria, I do all the necessary research to guide you in creating a compelling offer.  Once the seller responds to your offer, I will explain your options  and negotiate on your behalf.  Each situation is uniquely different based the property, interest level and personalities involved.  I leverage my 24 years of experience having the benefit of knowing first hand what is transpiring on the other side of the transaction.

     Strategy is everything.

  • The Escrow

    Escrow is a neutral third party that takes the deposit money and receives instructions from all of those who are “party to the transaction”.  These include buyers, sellers and their realtors.

    When all of the conditions of the purchase agreement have been met, you’ll sign escrow instructions and deposit the balance of your down payment and closing costs to escrow.

  • Close of Escrow

    The ‘escrow closing’ signifies the change of ownership from the Seller to the Buyer and usually includes the execution and recording of the Grant Deed and Deed of Trust. Seller delivers the home empty and I give you the keys!
