Referred by a past client and friend, this buyer was ready to purchase a house in Seattle after getting a job and relocating here from Portland.
She was thinking the summer would be a good time to be moving into her potential new home but wanted to meet up and get the process started at the beginning of the year knowing that with the competitive nature of the market, the search might take several months. The buyer consultation is when we go over the steps of buying a home, explain the market conditions and dig in to what our clients are looking for. If we are fit for each other, we begin the quest for however long it may take. In this case, we met on a Thursday, took the first home tour on that Sunday, found the one :), had the inspection and sewer scoped the next Thursday, presented our offer the next day, and were the selected buyer by Saturday! For some, the process takes time and for some, you find the one on the first trip out and secure a house in only 9 days! Next comes the Escrow process and we were able to provide detailed updates and information so this busy professional could be worry free knowing all the details were covered!
Congrats on your new house Kate!
