If you're a new buyer in this market, you'll want to be prepared, now more than ever! I can offer you:
· A free, comprehensive list of all open houses in the East Bay (not just those in the Chronicle, etc.), sent to your email box before noon each Saturday;
· Free email updates sent to your email box the moment a new home meeting your criteria hits the market or sees a price change;
· A free, no-obligation 1-2 hour tour of any neighborhood you think might meet your needs (or a referral to a deeply experienced agent who covers that area, if I don't), stopping into a couple representative homes;
· Access to a website that includes:
-a review of typical buyer costs for homes at various price points;
-a list of strategies you can use to increase the chances your offer will be accepted, beyond just offering more money;
-a table identifying East Bay schools with high API scores, with click-thrus to sites with more information about those neighborhoods;
-a list of five deeply experienced lenders you might call for ideas and insight on the market and your situation; and
-a free package of buyer factsheets from the National Association of Realtors.
Just give me your email address and I'll get it to you!
