There are several reasons that I might be the best person around to help you with your Real Estate needs.
•· The Internet is a good place to look for property, but often the best opportunities are gone very early in the listing cycle. I make an effort to look at new listings every morning to see what is new on the market. If I have an understanding about exactly what you are looking for I might be able to find that great deal for you before someone else snatches it up.
•· As a Realtor and member of the MLS, I have better access to the search options for listed properties that you will get on the Internet. This allows me to break down the available properties a bit better when I know what your housing needs really are.
•· Another advantage I have in helping you find that "perfect" house is that I actively participate in the weekly Realtor caravan where we tour recently listed properties in the Auburn/Opelika market. By walking through a property I can get a much better feel for a house than can be described in a few hundred words with a few pictures.
•· The fact that I work for a very active Real Estate Agency, Weichert Realtors Porter Properties is a real advantage. I spend time talking to fellow realtors and attending meetings where we discuss available property. This gives me a great resource of the opinion of other experts on the local Real Estate Market.
•· I grew up in Auburn and I am very familiar with the local area. This gives me a real advantage when it comes to helping someone with their real estate search. There are often situations where a thorough knowledge of the area is the only way to really know if a particular property or area will meet all of the needs of a client.
•· I spend a lot of time researching Real Estate in the Auburn / Opelika area. I have put together reports on many different areas that contain data that will be useful to a buyer or seller. If you are interested in the Condo selling cycle I have charts and graphs that show the history of Condo Sales by month for the past 5 years. I have information about the average selling price listed by subdivision. I have data that shows the difference between asking and selling prices within areas of the city or by subdivision. And probably more important if you want to know something that I don't have, I have the expertise and interest in massaging the local data to find the answer.
