The Veenstra Team has started a very unique service that we provide in addition to our traditional work of working with home buyers and home sellers.
We call this service our “Might Move” program and it is great for people who are CONSIDERING a move — IF the circumstances are just right!
For example, we hear people say….
We “might move”…..
if we find just the right house at the right price
if we could sell our house within a specific price range
if a buyer expressed interest in our house
because we intend to move but not for a year or so
because we are getting closer to retirement
when our kids move out of the house
if a specific house that we love ever comes up for sale
Our “Might Move” program is designed to match-up folks who are not activley working at buying or selling their house, but would be happy to do so if all the pieces fell into place!
We have made some great matches this way without formally listing houses for sale or formally helping folks shop for their next house. When matches happen this way , everyone is thrilled and both the buyer and the seller find that they can save some good money.
SO HOW DOES “MIGHT MOVE” WORK?
We do not formally list houses for sale in this program. We simply maintain and update two data bases of information within our office; a list of houses that are, will be or maybe for sale and another a list of potential home buyers who are looking for a house with specific characteristics and we regularly run searches on both sets of data. When matches pop up, we make a couple phone calls to see if the matched folks are interested in checking out the option. If they are, we do. If they aren’t, they say “no thanks” and we do nothing else.
WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED ABOUT THE HOMES AND PEOPLE?
- Price range
- Size (in square feet)
- Number of bedrooms
- Number of bathrooms
- Architectural style
- Time frame for potential interest
- Special circumstances to be met (if necessary)
MIGHT BUY PARTICIPANTS
If you are a “Might Buy” participant, we will, not only, look for housing matches in our exclusive matchmaker data base, we also give you the option of setting up a private web portal that alerts you whenever a house officially comes on the market that meets your specific criterion. Some of our might buy participants have had a private web portal for several years, just keeping an eye on the market for that specific house that will make them jump. We are totally fine with that. Our goal is to help you meet YOUR housing goals and this unique program developed by the Veenstra Team, does that!
YOUR PRIVACY IS PROTECTED
This entire process is confidential. We don’t let people know that you may be considering a move. If we find a possible housing match for you, you decide if you want to pursue it. We do promote some of our “Might Sell” homes and our “Might Buy” buyers in order to generate new matches but we never publish names, adresses or photographs of houses or buyers. You can check out a partial list of some of our “Might Move” families by……
THERE’S NO REASON NOT TO SIGN UP IF YOU WANT TO CONSIDER ALL YOUR OPTIONS
We would love to include you in our exclusive, and confidential, data base of people who “might move” within the greater Kalamazoo area. As more people sign up for our “Might Move” program we increase everyones chances of making some really great housing matches.
NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR OUR REGULAR SERVICES
I should re-iterate that our “Might Move” program is a great fit for folks who are considering a move (Might Move”), do not need to buy or sell right away and have not yet made a decision to do so.
We don’t want to create overly high expectations that you will sell your house through our “Might Move” program or that you are likely to find your dream house through our “Might Move” program.
If you are a home buyer, this program is more of a fun opportunity to window shop for a house before you’re really ready to buy.
If you are a home owner it is a great, free opportunity to get an estimate of the market value of your house and test the market a bit without risk, cost, or obligation.
If you are planning to make a move at some point in the future, our “Might Move” program would be a great way to begin the process! When you get closer to the time you actually plan to move, we can more formally go to work for you and represent you as your professional buyer agent or seller agent. Our professional buyer agency and seller agency services are tailor made for folks who have made the decision to sell their home and/or purchase a home.
