Customized Search

When you’re a first time home buyer, it’s totally normal to spend hours scrolling through Zillow on the hunt for that perfect home. The only problem though with Zillow is that it doesn’t update a listing status, so that means it may be under contract and you don’t know and you don’t wanna waste your time going to a home that’s already under a contract. Especially in Nashville, we are seeing a shortage of inventory on the market compared to buyer demand. That means homes are being snatched up quickly, so it’s important to ensure you’re searching on a platform that is updated in live time.

I will set up you up on a custom live-time home search based on your must-haves, your deal breakers and your wish list. Then, out of the search results you will select which ones you want to see in person.

Scheduling Showings

Then, I’ll set up a series of showings and schedule them in the most succinct, efficient manner. I typically schedule each showing for an hour to allow us time to truly get a feel for the home to know if it is a true contender. One thing to remember during showings is to always act as if a camera is watching. Many homes today are outfitted with cameras that have the ability to listen in. So, we will want to ensure any conversations about potential offers is reserved until we are outside and away from the home. We do not want to unknowingly tip our hand to sellers.

Then, what happens when you find the one? I’ll cover that in my next First Time Home Buyer Series post.
