Purchasing a home is the single greatest investment that someone will make in their lifetime. Because of this fact, I think it is important to inform my clients on what the major cost items are in a home and what to look for when viewing a potential property. Often, buyers who work with an inexperienced realtor can find themselves purchasing a home that needs repairs not long after moving in. One of my goals as a realtor is to ensure that my clients are informed from start to finish. I have made a list of some major cost items in a home that should be looked at during the first showing or at latest during the inspection.
Major Cost Items
As your realtor, I am always working for you with your best interests at heart. While viewing properties I am always up front with my clients on the condition of the major aspects of the home. It is always better to try and catch these items early on before we go through the inspection process. I never want to put my clients in a situation where major repairs are needed right after purchasing if they are not aware of them. Due to my experience with viewing thousands of homes over the past 5 years, I am aware of the general cost of major repairs and I let my buyers know what that would be and whether it would make sense paying the list price or whether negotiating the price is what is needed.
I am experienced with first time buyers, buyers looking for second homes and buyers who have purchased multiple times. Whether you are wanting to start your home search now or in the future, please reach out to me to get the process started. I am here to help and make the process as stress free as possible.

Have you been thinking about buying or selling but are unsure with everything that has happened in 2020? Currently, the real estate market in our area is at an all-time high. I have been successful in not only selling homes for my clients at above list price with multiple offers, but also finding homes for my buyers and beating out other offers in multiple offer situations.
If you are thinking about selling your home and want to optimize your dollar then now is the time. Numerous homes that I have recently listed have not only sold above list price, but have also received multiple offers within only days on the market and dozens of showings scheduled within only a few days. The main reason for this is a few things. Extremely low interest rates, low inventory and an abundance of qualified buyers.
If you are thinking about buying now is also a good time. Interest rates are at an all time low! What you could afford just a couple years ago compared to now is probably close to double. I am also experienced in multiple offer situations that are currently unfolding. I have the knowledge to present your offer in a way that other realtors may not know how.
What I can do for you:
I have lived in Lapeer County my entire life and know the surrounding market very well. I have the knowledge to know where and how to advertise. I also take pride in the presentation of my listings. I have been successful in helping hundreds of clients over the past few years with either successful purchases or sales.
As your realtor I provide my clients with professional photos of their home or property as well as aerial drone photography and advertising on 30+ websites.

You have decided to buy a house, now what? The best place to start when thinking about purchasing a home is to contact a reputable lender who offers many options for loans. The reason for this is because many homes only qualify for certain loan types as well as it is important to find out what price range is best for you. Foreclosures, which can be a popular home buyer option many times need some type of work which means only a conventional or rehab loan would be allowable due to the loan guidelines. A conventional loan is much more lenient with repairs that are needed where as a loan such as FHA, Rural Development or VA are much stricter. Many items that FHA, Rural Development and VA flag are chipping paint, missing GFI outlets, cracked concrete, curling or missing shingles, rotting wood, and more. The type of loan that works best for you is the absolute first essential step in the home buying process whether you are a first time or experienced home buyer. As your real estate agent I want to ensure that you have a successful and hassle free experience looking for a new home. Because of this, I always recommend to my clients that they first speak to a lender who can get them approved, and ensure that the deal goes through once we find your dream home. As one of the top realtors in Lapeer County, I have worked with numerous lenders over several years and have the best recommendations to help you begin this first step. Call or text me at 810-728-6417 and I can give you my top recommendations on lenders who can start you on the first step to finding your new home.
Why the Spring Market is the best:
Lapeer county real estate continues to be great and springtime is the perfect time to list your home for sale. The holidays are over, and buyers are getting excited to be outdoors with the warmer weather. Generally, warmer weather not only makes buyers start looking at homes and be more active, but they also see the perfect opportunity to get settled into a new home before school starts again and the cold weather returns.
7 Things to focus on when getting your home ready for the spring market:
In my experience in Lapeer county real estate and surrounding counties, buyers focus on many things when viewing homes, but one stands out the most and that is cleanliness. If a home is outdated but clean, buyers will be more apt to show interest in it. If a home is outdated and dirty, buyers tend to sway away from those. To help my clients out, I have come up with a list of 7 important but inexpensive things to focus on when getting your home ready for the spring market. They are:
What I can do for you:
