About The Process

At RLV Homes, we customize the home buying experience to each client. But for those of you who don’t do well with surprises, we’ve outlined a few of the basics to give you a feel for how things will go.

Getting To Know You

  • Meet to understand the bigger picture (your lifestyle, your needs, your taste)
  • Understand your criteria (location, home size, lot size, budget)

Getting To Know The Market

  • Introduce you to a variety of neighborhoods to give you a feel for how far your budget will go in each location
  • Accommodate showing requests as quickly and efficiently as possible, ensuring you’re able to see each and every home that interests you
  • Respond as immediately as possible to all questions and showing requests, keeping an open line of communication throughout the entire process

Exploring During Showings

  • Allow you to soak up the showing experience, taking as little or as long as you need to get a feel for each home you view
  • Inspect “behind-the-scenes” factors of the home (foundation, furnace, roof, windows, finishings) using years of industry experience to equip you with as much knowledge as possible during your home buying process
  • Recap after each showing to determine likes and dislikes, offering feedback for the seller and solidifying what’s most important in your home search

Negotiating The Sale

  • Use years of industry experience and home value knowledge to get you the best price on your home purchase
  • Engage in any negotiation methods necessary, from phone negotiations to in-person negotiations
  • Make use of positive relationships built with fellow real estate agents to negotiate in a way that’s fair, friendly, and honest

Closing Out The Experience

  • Recommend trusted service providers, from lenders to title companies and inspectors
  • Personally attend your closing to ensure a smooth transaction
  • Recommend from an established network of contractors for any post-close improvements or upgrades to the home
  • Celebrate the purchase of your new home!
