You’re right—buying a house is a huge deal.
The truth is that this is likely the largest financial transaction of your life. Your life savings is on the line…so it’s not just a huge deal, it’s the biggest deal of your life!
You may have heard some stories about how difficult it can be to find the right home. It can seem completely overwhelming…but you deserve a home search that is as painless as possible.
Then, once we find that home and it’s time to write an offer, you absolutely deserve the best possible terms on your new investment.
It’s my job to be your expert negotiator and make sure no dollar is left behind at the table, and hold your hand, step by step, guiding you through every aspect of the process.
Working with me is not your typical transaction.
You’re never a just number to me, but the numbers do matter when your real estate investment is on the table. That’s why it’s important to choose an agent with experience. Every year, I personally help over 50 people buy and sell homes in the Anniston area.
As an independent broker, I’m different. You can count on my loyalty to represent you, fiercely—and put you first, every step of the way.
Here’s What You Can Expect When Buying with Annie Brunson Realty: (Formally Buyer's Edge Realty)
1) Initial Phone Call
I will cover your goals, my process, and if it’s a fit, schedule your Strategic Home Search Consultation.
2) Strategic Home Search Consultation
In about 60 minutes, we will cover your goals in detail, and outline my step-by-step strategy for getting you your ideal property with the best possible terms. We will also cover the specifics you need to know about focusing your search, understanding financing, legal paperwork, and important market stats. You’ll be amazed at how spending just a few minutes in the beginning of your search refining your wants and needs can save you weeks or months in un-focused house hunting.
3) Next Steps
We start with finding the best financing option for you. Some agents just push you towards their favorite lender, regardless of whether they have the right programs for YOU. Through my knowledge of different mortgage options, I can help you find the financing that will not only fit your budget and down payment needs, but also be compatible with your home goals.
Next, we start our search. Based on the response from the “My Ideal Home” questionnaire you will have filled out after our Strategic Home Consultation, we’ll start by looking at different styles and areas to help narrow your search, and go from there. In addition to our automated alerts so you find out about properties right as they hit the market, my extensive connections mean we find out about off-market and “coming soon” opportunities you may otherwise miss.
Trusted advice: I’ll be there as a voice of reason to help you think strategically so that you make the best decision. Using market stats to show you the best areas for potential appreciation, evaluating future major repair items on potential homes, hidden costs and savings—these are all important factors that must be weighed.
Finally, it’s time to negotiate. From research into seller financial restraints, comparative analysis, and the most successful strategies when facing multiple bid situations, we will craft the ideal offer together that will get you the best deal and be the winning bid.
With over 30 years of experience, I have finely tuned my strategies—but I customize the approach to match your exact needs, so you can get the home you want with the terms you deserve.
Let’s get started on your goals!
