Buying

Fast Facts

In 2020, during a global pandemic, I sold 47 units worth a cumulative $12.6M. That exceeded my total of $9.6M in 2019.

What makes me unique.

I. Handle. Everything. 

I don’t care how many homes you want to see, how much help you need, or how many offers we send out (though, with my experience, one offer is often all you need). I listen intently to truly hear what you’re looking for. I’m not just chasing the biggest commission; I will do everything in my power to get you in the right home for your next chapter. 

 

Be honest: Do you dream of turnkey, or fantasize about DIY? Do you want a large garden or is yardwork the LAST thing you want to do?

 

As your realtor, I won’t let you lie to yourself. I’m not here to find you find a house, I’m here to find you a home.
 

Best yet, you won’t just feel supported every step of the way, you’ll be supported.

 

How? Here’s the quick list.

Moving trucks

Free moving trucks for those who have bought or sold a home through me. And if you’re a community non-profit? Even better. 

 

Buying unlisted houses

I’ve been in the field long enough that potential clients ask me to keep my eyes open for them. Sometimes they’ll say, “Erin, we’re thinking of retiring and looking for a one-floor home. What do you think?” and I’ll have the perfect buyer lined up for their current two-story. I make it my business to connect authentically with clients constantly, even after move-in. Happy clients love to share all their favorite details and features of their homes with me. I may already have a home in mind that fits your vision. This allows for a fast, easy closing, without even listing. It removes competition and makes buying less complicated. I’ll facilitate a win-win before a property even hits the market.

 

Community donation

Whether your new home is luxe or a DIY dream,  $100 of every commission goes to a community organization of your choice. 

 

Client education

You might be thinking, “Erin, I’m terrified of being house poor! Can I afford to buy right now?” I get it. It can be confusing to navigate, especially as a first time home buyer. Did you know that there are government subsidies, grants and tax incentives for homeownership? I’ll bring the wine and we’ll sit down and talk about the options. I’ll make it all make sense, and encourage you to move at your own pace. When you’re ready, give me a call. I’ll empower you to make the best choice for your lifestyle. 

 

You’ll be working with just me, not a team of random realtors.

No matter where you are in the home buying process, when you call me, I’m caught up to the minute on what’s happening, There’s nothing lost in translation or held up on someone’s desk. I’m all you need to get things done ASAP.

 

Convenient E-signing.

You don’t need to take time out of your day to come to the office to sign things unless you want to . You’ll be able to digitally sign from home. 

 

I make deals happen.

Look, more goes into closing than just negotiating the price point. I won’t spill all my secrets online, but I’m very good at negotiating all the crucial terms of a sale. You’ll close, especially if I have anything to do with it.

Excited? Here’s what’s next:

 

  1. Assess your finances. Check your credit score and save for a down payment and closing costs.

  2. Talk to a bank or one of Rovithis Realty's lenders so see how much you can afford. I'm happy to refer you to one of my preferred lenders if you're unsure of the best path forward. After, get a prequalification or pre-approval.

  3. Find your real estate agent. Hint, it should be me. But if you're not sure, schedule a free buyers consultation where we can get to know each other over a cup of coffee or video chat. We can talk about the home buying process and I'll answer any burning questions you may have.

  4. Figure out what you want in a home and make a list or your priorities. It’s okay if you don’t have a clue. Call or email me and we’ll figure it out together.

  5. Sign up to get listings sent to you.

  6. Call me to set up viewings when a house piques your interest.

  7. Place an offer. I'll make sure it's a smart one. Sometimes a letter helps.

  8. If the offer is accepted, set up a home inspection.

  9. Renegotiate if appropriate. If not, let the lawyers step in and take care of the terms. You may need to gather papers for the mortgage underwriters.

  10. Congratulations, it's time to close on your new home.
