Buying Plan

WHEN I SERVE AS YOUR EXCLUSIVE BUYER REPRESENTATIVE, MY COMPREHENSIVE BUYER SERVICES ARE GEARED TO HELP YOU MAKE THE BEST BUYING DECISION THAT MEETS YOUR NEEDS:
  • FIND THE RIGHT HOUSE: Help you focus in on appropriate homes based upon your needs and price range.

  • ARRANGE SHOWING APPOINTMENTS: Arrange showing appointments for properties you like and are qualified to buy.  Prior to showing it's often useful for you, the buyer, to drive by properties to see if you really want to see the inside, because MLS photos may not give sufficient information that a pre-showing drive-by could better reveal.

  • OFFERING PRICE: Provide you with recent sales and listing information so you, the buyer, can determine your offering price. This is called a Buyers Comparative Market Analysis or "CMA".  Note: In a rapidly changing market or when housing inventory is limited and buyer demand is high, prior closed sales information may be less reliable.

  • PURCHASE OFFER AND NEGOTIATIONS: Write the Purchase Offer and represent you in contract negotiations that realistically take into account current market demand, available supply of alternative homes, and any special circumstances such as a multiple purchase offer situation. Because I'm not an attorney, I'm not qualified to provide any type of legal advice, including but not limited to, interpreting legally binding contract provisions.  Questions and concerns of a legal nature should be obtained from consulting with a qualified attorney.
     

  • REPRESENT YOUR INTERESTS - FIDUCIARY DUTY: Represent you, the Buyer, during the contract and negotiations.  The California Civil Jury Instructions provides this explanation of what "Fiduciary Duty" means:  A fiduciary duty imposes on a real estate agent/real estate broker, a duty to act with the utmost good faith in the best interests of his/her/its client.  In other words, a real estate client is owed a duty of good faith, loyalty, honesty, reasonable care and fair dealing.
     

  • CONTRACTS AND DISCLOSURES REQUIRED BY LAW: Real estate contracts, including but not limited to, Buyer Inspection Advisory's, legally mandated seller disclosures, home inspection reports, environmental reports, preliminary title reports, building permits, permits and permit history disclosure reports, County Assessor's Reports, zoning regulations, geo-technical inspections and reports, and various other reports and documents, can be extremely complex, and may be fraught with land-mines that could result in major problems if a dispute arises.  I will provide the necessary contract and transaction disclosure documents as required by local, state, and federal regulations. Please take the time to read all documents very carefully before signing any documents.  You, as the buyer, have an affirmative duty to exercise reasonable care to protect yourself, including discovery of the legal, practical and technical implications of disclosed facts, and the investigation and verification of information and facts that you know or are within your diligent attention and observation.  Because I'm not an attorney, I'm not qualified to provide any type of legal advice, including but not limited to, interpreting legally binding contract provisions.  Questions and concerns of a legal nature should be obtained from consulting with a qualified attorney. 

  • PROPERTY INSPECTIONS: Assist you in coordinating various physical inspections of the property and neighborhood so you can become as fully informed about the property as possible.

  • RE-NEGOTIATIONS: Assist you in any re-negotiations if inspections reveal problems.

  • ESCROW PROCESS: Guide and coordinate the escrow process on your behalf.

  • CONTRACT CONTINGENCIES: Make certain that all contract contingencies are satisfied on your behalf.

  • FINAL WALK-THROUGH INSPECTION: Accompany you to the final Walk-Through Inspection of the property just prior to the close.

  • ESCROW SIGNING: Accompany you at the escrow signing of all final contract, escrow, and closing documents required to transfer title in your name.

  • TAKING POSSESSION OF YOUR NEW HOME: Coordinate your taking possession of your new home, including arranging transferring keys, security codes, garage door openers, and other similar items to you, the new owner, after the transfer of title is completed.

Fair Housing:
Federal and state fair housing laws were put into effect to create an even playing field for homebuyers in all areas of a real estate transaction. These laws prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, and national origin. The Civil Rights Act of 1866 prohibits all racial discrimination in the sale or rental of property.  The Fair Housing Act of 1968 makes fair housing a national policy. It prohibits discrimination in the sale, lease or rental of housing, or making housing otherwise unavailable because of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status or national origin. Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in commercial facilities and places of public accommodation. The Equal Credit Opportunity Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against anyone on a credit application due to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age or because all or part of an applicant's income comes from any public assistance program. The home seller, the home seeker, and the real estate professional all have rights and responsibilities under the law. Under the law, a home seller or landlord cannot establish discriminatory terms or conditions in the purchase or rental; deny that housing is available or advertise that the property is available only to persons of a certain race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin. Agents in a real estate transaction may not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status or national origin. They also may not follow such instructions from a home seller or landlord. Discrimination complaints about housing may be filed with the nearest office of the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) or by calling HUD's toll-free numbers, 1-800-669-9777 (voice) or TTY (800) 927-9275 contact HUD on the Internet at
