Choose the Tampa area relocation expert
Moving to a new city is overwhelming by itself, without mixing in the daunting task of finding a place to live plus finding a Realtor you can trust. At RE/MAX Bay to Bay, I understand this, and I am an expert in relocation. I have a long history of finding buyers the right home by going through a very specific checklist to help you efficiently narrow your options.
When most buyers go into home search mode - they may wind up with 50+ listings to see. It should go without saying that's too many homes to see first hand if you're on a short visit from out of town! I can help you to narrow your search down to 20-25 properties, keeping these things in mind:
- Before leaving town, write your needs into one list. Then write your wants in another. When a house comes up short on your must-haves, it's one less house to look at.
- Know your budget. If you are going to get a home loan, know your pre-approved amount in advance so we can eliminate homes beyond your price range.
- What length of a commute are you comfortable making each day to your job and other interests? Traffic in the Tampa area could be different than what you're currently experiencing, so tell me your expected drive-time, and I'll find homes based on my knowledge of drive times in the area.
Before we meet in person, I could send you recommendations for listings we should see. Or if you've done your own research already, let me know what you've found. While virtual tours and photos are helpful, there's nothing like visiting homes in person. I can arrange any necessary appointments with other Realtors or homeowners and map a route. By planning ahead, we could see 8 to 10 homes in a single day.
