Buying a Home
You’re done finding out all that you can on the Internet, you’ve researched all you can through other sources, and you’re ready to finally talk with a local professional about buying a home. At this time, please feel free to make an appointment for a discovery tour or a home purchasing tour; it’s completely up to you depending on your time frame and motivation.
For us to work on your behalf it will be necessary to sign a few forms electronically. They are all approved by the Colorado Division of Real Estate. The first one is the “Exclusive Right to Buy” which outlines our working relationship. The other one is the “Definitions of Working Relationships” which describes the different types of Agencies in the State of Colorado. Before revealing to us any motivating factors, it is important we review these documents together.
Things You’ll Need
When meeting for the first time, before going to see any properties, we will take a copy of your Driver’s License, Passport, or other government identification.
We have access to all the local Multiple List Services, For Sale By Owners, off-market properties, pre-market, auctions, estate sales, new construction, model homes, and more. If you have a question about ANY property – whether for sale or not – we can help you. Be careful of off-market listing Sellers, calling newspaper or Craigslist ads, or ‘For Sale By Owners’. It can be a waste of your time and not always safe.
Once we are working on your behalf, remember to take a lot of our business cards. If you happen to go through an open house on your own, are contacted by another agent, or talk with a potential Seller, we want them to know you’re backed by the Mountain Dream Real Estate.
Prepare for Your Appointment
To prepare for your home viewing appointment, plan to spend at least 30 minutes at each property. We will give you an estimated time of the entire tour, drive times included, based on how many properties you wish to view. Wear warm and comfortable socks, as well as shoes that you can slip on and off easily or we can provide shoe covers. If you are just visiting us for the day from another area, our weather can be significantly colder and wetter than even an hour away. Always have extra layers packed – jackets, coats, hats, boots – even in the summer!
Please be aware that we do not allow for Buyers to take their own photos or videos, or to video-conference with another person, without the Seller’s prior permission. Please also be aware that many properties will have surveillance technology in place.
