McIntire Realty (“MR”) has been successfully assisting individuals and investors purchase new homes for years. If you are in the market to purchase a new home, you are likely feeling very excited and a little nervous. Our goal is to work directly with you on a daily basis by filling the role of advisor, teammate, and resource throughout the escrow process and through the closing. As a result, our proven support structure makes buying a home stress free and as smooth as possible.
If you have purchased a home in the past and are now in the market to upgrade, downsize, or acquire an additional property, then you already have an understanding of the purchase process. Further, you know that having a punctual agent on your team can be your greatest asset. To help ensure the deal gets closed, our team understands that timely responses and forward thinking are key to successfully transacting a real estate purchase. Therefore, our agents operate with a goal to keep each client informed throughout the transaction.
As an experienced buyer, we understand that you are more interested in seeing results and timely responses. Though we are here to help educate and interpret any aspect of the transaction, our focus is to effectively look out for your best interest and make sure that all documents and contracts are in place and filed correctly in a timely manner so you are protected and in the best position to close the deal as soon as possible.
Our professional agents have years of experience working with first-time home buyers. If you are a first-time buyer, you likely have already weighed the pros and cons of buying a new home and transitioning from renting. The biggest advantage of buying a home is building long term equity. Our agents love guiding first-time home buyers through the process of purchasing their first. We understand it is an experience and one of the largest, if not the largest, financial purchase during your lifetime. This can also be one of the biggest decisions that a family will make. Therefore, our agents hold your hand through the entire process ensuring you are comfortable with the following:
- Monthly Payments
- Property Condition
- School System
- and more…
We strive to assist each first-time buyer throughout the purchase process and provide thorough information for you to feel comfortable in making an informed decision.
