Buying WITH
MORE

We'll help you find MORE
than the right home

We’ll find the one that fits your everything

we provide a search that's quite a bit different

What we understand is that you buy more than a house, you buy into a lifestyle. You research an area near your workplace, maybe evaluate schools a bit, check out the shopping and entertainment options, and then take some time to feel the vibe of a neighborhood. What’s important? Walkability, privacy, kid-friendly cul-de-sacs, Bunco on Thursdays, sprawling yards or none of those things?

And then there’s value. Not just price, but how do homes in this neighborhood appreciate over time? Is this a neighborhood where a renovation might bring added equity?  What will it be like to re-sell this home when we are ready? Serious buyers are really interested in these kinds of real time data points.

We provide a home search that’s about more than the house.

STEP ONE:

CONVERSATION

Let’s get to know each other. We’ll meet together for a Buyer Consultation to determine what you want and need in a home. Then we’ll create your wish list. Because it’s about more than just the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, it’s about you, your family, your lifestyle, your dreams and that’s very important to us.

Step Two:

FINANCING

We’ll introduce you to our mortgage partners. There is only one word to describe the mortgage partners we choose to work with – creative. They have to be out-of-the-box thinkers because that’s the kind of service we provide. You’ve got a need, and we’ve got a customized solution to put the best funding options at your fingertips. You’ll know your price range, closing costs and monthly payments upfront so you can shop for homes knowing what your choice will mean for you financially.

Step Three:

SHOPPING

We’ll make sure that we find the perfect home for you. We listen, we care and we know our stuff. The areas, the schools, the neighborhoods, the home styles and how to put it all together in the perfect package for you. And, we’ll leave no stone unturned. Your perfect home might be listed in the MLS, or it might be one that hasn’t hit the market yet, perhaps a For Sale By Owner (FSBO), or New Construction. If none of those options work and you find a neighborhood you like, we’ll go door to door for you until we find it.

Step Four:

CONTRACT

Once you’ve found the perfect home, we will research market data and provide you with everything you’ll need to craft a great offer. We’ll draft the offer in writing and present it to the seller’s agent, then we’ll use our years of negotiation experience to get the best terms for you. Once you and the seller have agreed on the terms of sale you will be under contract to purchase your property.

Step Five:

INSPECTIONS

We will hold your hand and walk you through everything from the signed contract to the closing table. We’ve done this hundreds of times so we have a perfect system that lets you know what to expect every step of the way. Lenders, inspections, contractors, quotes, title insurance, paperwork, the closing attorney, you name it we’ve got it all figured out. This will be the smoothest journey you’ve ever experienced.

Step Six:

Closing

The big day has finally arrived. We’ll meet at the attorney’s office where all the paperwork will be reviewed with you and you’ll sign on the dotted line. The purchase price will be paid in cash or by the lender and the deed will be recorded online with the courthouse. Once all this is complete you’ll get the keys to your new home!

EVEN AFTER CLOSING

We want to be your real estate advisors for life. Even after closing, we will always be available to let you know the market value of your home, provide you updates of what’s going on in the community through our blog, and to keep you up to date on market trends, both nationally and right down to the neighborhood level.

FAQs

You are only limited by your imagination. That being said, we have developed a successful system to pinpoint the perfect home for you. We know our market so well that by asking some very specific questions, we can typically find your dream home after looking at 5-7 homes. We’re great at understanding. We’re great at sifting through the haystack so that you don’t have to.

At the end of the day, you need to feel like you’ve found exactly what you’ve been looking for. We’re here to streamline the process. We’re here to give you MORE – the number of homes we lead you through doesn’t matter.

Of course. You need to feel confident that your money is being handled well, and if you have a lender that you trust, fantastic. We are very good at working with all types of lenders and with a wide variety of mortgage types.

Part of the level of service we offer is our experience. In the hundreds of transactions we will orchestrate this year, we continue to find that our go to mortgage banker offers the most consistent and best opportunity for our clients to reach a successful closing.

Either way, it never hurts to get a second opinion from one of the top lenders in the country.

Every property is unique, but you should anticipate a Home Inspection and a Pest/Termite Inspection at the very least. Other inspections include Radon, Structural, Chimney, Well and Septic. There will also likely be a survey completed through the closing attorney, and there is always an appraisal.

The purpose of inspections during the Due Diligence period is so that you are fully informed of the issues you may want to request the seller fix, or to give you a heads up for those that you will have to address in the future.

The great news for you is that we have a bevy of inspectors we use frequently and trust highly, and we schedule and facilitate each of them as requested. After we receive their report, we then process the “problems” through our contractors and specialists and get an itemized estimate so that we can evaluate if there are problems or just minor maintenance issues. We are there every step of the way – leading you through the process.

There are fees associated with each of the inspections that you choose to perform. Some of these fees can be deferred to be paid at the time of closing, and some of them can be reimbursed based on the negotiated contract.

Purchasing a home is a big deal. There is quite a bit of cost that comes with the privilege. But remember, this is an investment. We’re here to be your advisors – when we agree to work with you, we commit to a fiduciary relationship.

It’s safe to say that communication may be the most important thing we do. At MORE, we “seek first to understand” and truly invest in understanding the perspective of our clients and vendors, and most importantly, the cooperating agents. Also, we know that how we communicate can absolutely make the difference between a successful transaction and a lawsuit. Our entire team takes specialized training in effective language.
 
Our team rule is that email is for information transfer, not communicating. We text back fairly quickly, we call back as soon as we can, and we email back when we have info to transfer, but there are just things that deserve a discussion. We are really good at communication – it’s the difference.

We are an open book. We’ve looked at several different websites with a “client” portal and have found every one of them lacking. We have a system to let you know what to expect, and we follow it up with where we stand. Every transaction is different, but we’ve got a way to handle that. If you are curious, just ask. We think you’ll agree that it’s a heck of a lot easier to “communicate” than going to a “place”.
 
How long on average does it take to go from submitting and offer to being able to move in?
 
Typically it takes between 30 to 45 days to get through the entire process. There are a lot of moving parts, and there are so many ways a deal can fall apart. We like to look at it more like a series of milestones, with each one getting us closer to the finish line.

There are a ton of options for short-term rentals that we can help you with – furnished or not, pool and amenities, or parking for your boat. We have developed relationships with several local property managers specifically for that purpose.

We utilize a paperless system called DocuSign for all of our forms. This allows you and us to respond to something without being tied to a face-to-face. There are some situations where we will need “wet” signatures, but we’ll take care of coordinating any of those situations.
