WORKING WITH JILL TEAM

A home is more than a big financial commitment. It’s also an emotional investment.  We at Jill Team understand that. Buying a home, whether it’s your first or tenth, is exciting, but it can also be stressful and confusing. We’re here to make every step easier for you.

 

LOAN PRE-APPROVAL

Being pre-approved gives you a big advantage. It improves your negotiating position by presenting you as a serious buyer and can help you close on a property faster and with less stress. It also helps you determine a realistic budget. Jill Team can put you in touch with a loan officer, and can also suggest alternative ways to approach the down payment and financing.

FINDING YOUR HOME

Many factors go into choosing a community. School districts with the highest ratings (compare Ohio school districts at http://education.ohio.gov/lists_and_rankings) tend to have the highest property values. The old adage, “find the worst house in the best neighborhood” still holds true. But school districts are only one consideration. Some people may be drawn to walkable urban neighborhoods with vibrant arts scenes,

while others want a location close to their work. Spending time in a new community is one of the best ways to get a sense of how well it might fit your lifestyle.

 

With access to all area listings, Jill Team will use your wish list to help narrow your

search. Then, we make visiting those listings enjoyable and informative. Out of town?

We can take you on virtual tours. By carefully listening to our clients, we can find their

ideal home.

THE PURCHASE PROCESS

Inspections:

Is that crack in the wall a minor flaw or a deal-breaker? As your agent, we can provide you with a list of qualified home and pest inspectors, surveyors, and structural engineers, and will help coordinate inspection appointments.

 

Negotiations:

The agent acts as a liaison between the buyer and seller, presenting offers and counteroffers and coordinating inspections, repairs, and appraisals until an agreement is reached. Negotiation is an art! Our goal is to get you into your dream house at the best possible price.

 

Fees:

In Ohio, the seller typically pays the realtor commission, which is split between the buyers’ and sellers’ agents. Some agents require a transaction fee from buyers, but Jill Team does not charge buyers any additional fees.
