Relocating to the New Mexico or Tucumcari area
When moving to a new area, you may have a lot on your mind: a different job, different schools, a different church, different daily routines, and of course, finding a new place for your family to live. At McElroy & Associates, I understand this, and I am an expert in relocation. I have a long history of finding buyers the right home by going through a very specific checklist to help you efficiently narrow your options.
When relocating, you often don't have the luxury of looking at every home on the market. Most likely, you'll get be shown a couple dozen, so pare down the list first thing with this advice:
- Before you get here, send me a couple of lists: One should be of things you must have. The other should be for optional things you want. When a house doesn't even meet your needs, we can naturally take it out of the list.
- Know your budget. If you are going to get a home loan, know your pre-approved amount beforehand so we can eliminate homes which exceed your price range.
- Think about drive time to your job or other interests. Traffic around Tucumcari could be different than what you're used to, so let me know how long a commute you're willing to undertake.
Before we meet in person, I could send you recommendations for properties we should see first. Or if you've got a list of properties in mind, let me know what you've found. While seeing listing photos on the web is invaluable, there's nothing like seeing homes in person. I can schedule any necessary appointments with other Realtors or homeowners and map a route. We could see up to 8 or 10 homes in a single day if we work efficiently.
