Home Buyer Tips
In our experience, a house is not a dream home because of its size or color. Its about how you feel when you
walk through the front door - the way you can instantly see your life unfolding there. This about more than real
estate. It's about your life and your dreams.
We'll arrange to visit the homes you've selected, together and in-person, to determine the best fit for you.

Schedule Home Inspection

Get a Home Warranty
Some home sellers pay for a home warranty that covers them while their home is on the market and conveys to the buyers after the sale. You can ask your real estate agent for advice about negotiating for the sellers to pay for a warranty or buying one yourself.
