Buying Las Vegas Real Estate
Shopping for real estate can be a stressful and complicated process, but using an experienced real estate agent buying Las Vegas real estate can take the stress out of the process. Mike Colpitts has 20 years of real estate selling experience, which gives his clients an advantage whether you’re buying a home or condominium.
Home prices are on their way up in Las Vegas. The foreclosure crisis sent home values to the lowest they had been in years. But housing in Las Vegas is still much more affordable than most other areas in the West.
How Mike Helps Buying Las Vegas Real Estate
The first step we need to take is to set-up a meeting. The goal is to help you as the buyer determine what steps need to be taken that suits your needs, and take the least amount of time with the least amount of hassle. Your input is essential. Discussing wants and needs is basic to any buying experience. However, determining the difference between “wants” and “needs” along with affordability are crucial issues for most consumers.
My goal is to help guide you through the buying process and to make it as easy as possible along the way whether you’re buying a modest single family home or a fabulous high-rise condominium penthouse. There are ups and downs to the whole buying process, but making the downs less troublesome has come easier for my clients with the years of experience that I’ve gained selling real estate.
Too many real estate agents focus on the sales price alone. The monthly payment, sales terms and down payment considerations can also be just as important for many buyers, especially those seeking to quickly relocate or buying a home for the first time. My goal is to use the knowledge that I’ve acquired over the years to make sure you see the best properties available in your price range and to negotiate the best deal possible.
That also means that being pre-qualified with a lender is vital to the buying process for buyers who need financing for their purchases. Determining the amount of financing you qualify for is integral to the home buying process since it makes no-sense at all to look for homes that are listed for $350,000 if you qualify for a $200,000 property.
Working with the right lender for your particular needs is integral to the buying process and can save you thousands of dollars on a purchase whether it’s a primary residence, an investment property or a vacation home or condo. Being pre-qualified and obtaining a pre-qualification letter from the lender is also an important step in the process, and can be used as ammunition when it comes to buying a property.
One of the best ways to get a seller to seriously consider your low offer is to have your agent bring the letter of approval to the offer presentation. It is a negotiating tactic that I have used for years to save clients hundreds of thousands of dollars, and it’s an advantage that you want to use when it comes to buying a home or condo, especially in the current economy when so many learn that they don’t qualify to buy a home.
There are lots of other advantages that I give my clients to save time and money. Taking the hassles out of the home buying process is the most important thing that an agent can do for clients, and I’ll make sure I do all I can to help. Showing property is only a small part of the home buying process. With so many housing developments and different parts of town to get acquainted with it’s no wonder why so many people wonder how they’ll ever sort things out when it comes to buying the right place. If you’re considering a move to a new Las Vegas home or condo feel free to contact me at your convenience.
Thanks for your time.
