Relocating? Let me be your guide
When moving to a new city, you may have a lot on your mind: a different job, different schools, a different church, different daily routines, and last but not least, finding a new place for your family to call "home". 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 time to look at every conceivable area listing. Most likely, you'll have the time to tour 20 to 25, so pare down the list first thing with this advice:
- Before coming into town, arrange your needs into one list. Then put your wants in another. If a property comes up short on your must-haves, there's no need to even spend time looking at it.
- Know your budget. If you are going to get a home loan, know your pre-approved amount beforehand so we can eliminate homes beyond your budget.
- What length of a commute are you comfortable making each day to your job and other activities? Traffic in the Tucumcari area could be different than what you're currently experiencing, so tell me your desired drive-time, and I'll seek out homes accordingly.
Before we meet in person, I could send you my picks for possible homes. Or you could already have some favorite listings you could share with me culled from your own research. While virtual tours and photos are great, there's nothing like touring homes in person. Let me set up any necessary appointments with other Realtors or homeowners and map a route. By planning ahead, we could see 8 or 10 homes in a single day.
