When I first hear from a client who is thinking of buying a home I start by assessing their needs so I know the best way I can serve them as their real estate agent. Whether I am working with a first time home buyer or a seasoned investor, I know my job is to find a house that meets their needs while making sure it is a sound investment. In this market buyers need to move fast- I am available to show you houses as soon as they come up, and in the rare case that I can't, I have a partnership of agents that can show in my place. I also have money saving programs designed specifically for you! Please reach out and I'll send you detailed information for your situation.
The real estate market in Douglas County has been super strong but you also need to know how to best take advantage of that (and unfortunately) Most buyers aren't advised on the key things they should look for and do in order to grow and protect that investment. I really want to EMPOWER my clients so they can be confident through the buying process. I show them how to look at the house they purchase not only as their home, but also as an investment. When my buyers are ready to sell in a few years, my goal is to see their jaws drop to the floor when I show them the amount of equity they have in their home because of the smart choices we made for their purchase. Let me help you turn your down payment into truly life changing equity!
Seller Listing Services
I provide free listing appointments where I go over my individualized strategy to sell your home for the most profit. Then I get to work by staging/ organizing and send over a photographer. I'll list your home in the MLS, I will also be marketing in many other avenues including open houses. As you receive offers on your home, I review each one with you in detail. If your home has lots of interest, we will discuss how best to deal with multiple offers. Once under contract, I review all disclosures and strongly negotiate with you if anything comes up during inspection and appraisal. I also am constantly in contact with the buyer's lender to make sure there are no issues that come up for the purchase. Another important part of the process is working to find solutions for my seller clients such as contractors for inspection items, moving companies, short term rentals, or anything you need from me to make the process as smooth and stress free as possible!
Shepherd and Associates owns and manages several rental properties, some furnished. We offer flexible leases for our clients to use while looking for or building a new home. This can also give your offer to purchase a stronger edge because you can allow the sellers to stay in their home while they look for a replacement house since you'll have more flexible timing than the average buyer. If you are relocating to the Denver area or need a place to rent and plan on buying a home in the next 12 months, please contact me for how we can use this program to your advantage!
