Finding and purchasing a home that will meet your needs is a significant and often stressful time. The goal of the Legacy Real Estate team is to make this transition as smooth as possible. We are experts in the area, and once we learn what it is that you’re looking for, finding your dream home is simple. We’re not just experienced real estate professionals in Kentuckiana, we’re home buyers too. It takes more than a trained real estate agent to understand the needs and concerns of buyer clients. It takes someone who has been there, someone who has the same concerns when they’re home shopping.
We don’t want to minimize the technical aspects of the home buying process though. Every year it becomes more complex. Between government legislation, environmental laws, mortgage documentation requirements and the legal aspects of a home purchase, the home buyer must be on top of all aspects of the process, or be helped by a professional.
We’re here to assist buyers and we’re pretty good at our job. There’s plenty to do, let’s get started:
Know Before You Owe
When it comes to a purchase, especially your home, you have the right to “Know Before You Owe”. The new mortgage disclosure rule makes it easier for you to understand what you’re committing to when you buy or refinance your home.
We help our buyers to understand the many fields of information in an listing search. We guide them in making the most of searches in with thousands of listings.
Automated Search Reports
Once we have an idea of your criteria for a home selection, we can set up automated search alert emails to keep you informed of new listings and price reductions of qualified properties.
As tough as it is these days to get a mortgage, we know the best sources and will help you to contact mortgage professionals who have been very helpful to our past clients.
Buyers shouldn’t walk into a deal unarmed. We arm you with market data to help you to understand the buyer and seller sides and formulate an offer price negotiation strategy.
Inspection and Repair Negotiations
Price isn’t the only negotiation, as there will be property inspections and you may need to enter into more negotiating around property condition and repairs. We’re experts at this.
Contract To Closing
The myriad of tasks, documents and delivery deadlines involved in a real estate transaction are all coordinated by Carrie, Christina and staff. From title insurance to surveys and mortgage documents, we’re here to help.
