1. Search, Discover, and Dream
You’ll need to get crystal clear with your intentions/home goals and ask yourself all the necessary questions, such as:
- Are you pre-approved for a mortgage?
- What’s your price range?
- Single family home or multifamily?
- Historic home or modern with updates?
- Would you be open to renovating?
- The desired number of beds and baths?
- Do you have pets?
- Garage or on-street parking?
- How will being a homeowner make you feel?
- Is Stability important in your life?
- What does dream home mean to you?
** Jot down your “must-have” list and determine what features your future home must include. **

Vision boards help create emotion for the intention. Emotions can play an important and powerful role.

3. Do your homework
Get to know your local real estate expert and share your recent discovery with them. The more you share about exactly what you’re looking for, the more helpful we can be! This is where the fun begins!
We’ll attend open houses and show you homes in your price range that check every box off your list.
4. Win the bidding war
Bidding war or not, you’ll want to make your best first impression to home sellers. If the market is competitive, you’ll want to let the seller know you’ll do whatever it takes. In the case you lose a bidding war, you can always try to buy out the winning buyer to negotiate a deal.
A winning tactic to a bidding war: write the seller a handwritten letter explaining your desire to buy their home. By adding this personal touch, you’re creating a connection that will surely make an impression along with your offer.
We feel like making dreams come true!
