Let the Veenstra Team Do an Initial Search and Prepare a List of Kalamazoo or Portage Homes for Sale that Match your Criterion (Call 269-350-5514)
When you are sure of the amount of money that you will be able to borrow, you should be in immediate contact with the Veenstra Team. We will ask you about your needs and wants and then we will do a very specific web search to prepare a list of all the homes that are on the market that match your list. We will also do another search of our Might Move database. This is our own very private database of homes where owners have told us they “MIGHT SELL” their home given the right circumstances. This is an ever growing database and allows us to make matches between home sellers and home buyers before the houses ever even get on the market. We will also sign you up for our Email Alert Service.
Signing up for our Email Alert Service and utilizing the free personalized webpage that we give you so that you can save your favorites is the most likely way to make sure you don’t miss out on the great deals that come on the market. The email alert system is great because you will be notified whenever a home that matches your criterion hits the market. You will know about it as soon as all the REALTORS find out about it, so you will be able to check it out and call the Veenstra Team to preview if it really seems like the right place.
24 Hour Open Houses
That is what we call the internet home searches these days. There is so much information and there are such great opportunities to preview the insides of houses that you may be fooled into believing that you will be able to find your dream home by doing searches on your own. You can enjoy the search process, but if you really want to find the best deals and be able to act on them before they are gone you must sign up for the New on the Market Email Alert. Be sure to search for homes using KzooHomesForSale.com to ensure that you are seeing the most up to date information. Websites like Trulia and REALTOR.com get their information from other sites that send it to them and so their information may not be as up to date as it should be.
Going to Open Houses can be a good way to get a feel for what you can get for your money or to be able to compare properties. CLICK HERE if you would like to see a list of scheduled open houses each week. If you do choose to go to Open Houses, let the agent who is hosting the Open House know that you are being represented by the Veenstra Team. They will be able to answer any questions that you have but will help them realize that they do not need to follow up with you and try to encourage you to be their client. The REALTORS in the Greater Kalamazoo area are all generally excellent about respecting relationships that are formed by other agents.
If there is a home that you are interested in, give the Veenstra Team a call at 350-5514 and we can get you any other information that you might need about the home, or we can schedule a private showing for you.
Why You need The Veenstra Team as your Buyer Agent
A buyers agent has the fiduciary responsibility to represent the buyer in a real estate transaction. A buyer will enter into a contract with that Buyer’s Agent by signing a contract. The buyer agrees that they will work exclusively with that buyer’s agent and the agent agrees to represent the interests of their client. This contract can last from days to several weeks, months or even years. Keeping in mind that there is no fee to hire a buyer’s agent. Buyer agents get paid by the seller in almost all cases.
You get guaranteed satisfaction when you use the Veenstra Team as your buyer’s agent because if for some reason you are not satisfied, you simply need to inform the Veenstra Team of the problem. If they can’t solve the problem you are released from the buyer agency contract.
