Buyer & Seller Resources
Buying A New Home
Purchasing a property is most likely the biggest financial decision you will ever make. Whether this is your first purchase or you are an experienced buyer, this decision must be made carefully.
Why Do You Want To Buy?
Are you tired of paying rent? Have you decided to pay your own mortgage and not your landlord’s? Have you outgrown your current home? Are you looking for an investment portfolio? Are you looking for a rental property? Would you like a larger yard? Would you rather live in a different area? Do you want to shorten your commute? Having a clear sense of your reasons for buying will help you choose the right property…..We would love to HELP make the decision that is RIGHT for YOU!
Has Your Income Grown?
Property ownership is an excellent investment; whether you are looking for your dream home, a rental property, or to expand your investment portfolio. Owning real estate is a great way to build equity or to obtain a greater return on your initial investment.

Selling Your Home
It’s a good idea to sit down and make sure you have a game plan and a time line that works for you before deciding to put your home on the market.
Why Are You Considering Selling?
Ask yourself…. why do you want to sell your property? Do you intend to relocating to a different area? Has the size of your family OR income changed? Do you plan on moving to another neighborhood, school district, or do you just want something new and different? You might think your reasons are obvious, but being clear about your overall intentions for selling will make it easier for us to determine the most beneficial options for your individual real estate needs.
When Is The Best Time To Sell?
Once you get a game plan together, you will need to determine your timeline for selling. If you need to sell quickly, we can give you a complete market analysis and a plan of action to obtain all of your goals. If there is no pressing need to sell immediately, you can sit down with one of the Tierra agents to thoroughly review the current market conditions and find the most favorable time to sell.
When you work with the Tierra Team, you can be sure that you will have our knowledge, expertise and negotiating skills at work for you to arrive at the best market prices and terms. We will keep you up-to-date on what is happening in the market and the price, financing, terms and conditions of competing properties. With Tierra, you will know exactly how to price, and when to sell your property.
TIPS to Getting Your Home Ready To Sell
You can do a lot to increase the appeal of your property and to create a lasting impact on potential buyers.
What To Do To Prepare:
The following are a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:
1. Curb Appeal
Keeping your landscape manicured, and adding creative, colorful touches to your yard, will create an immediate impact on potential buyers.
2. Property Repairs
Simple upgrades such as a deep cleaning and a fresh coat of paint on the front door and in the most frequently used rooms will instantly brighten up the property.
3. Cleanliness and Staging
Keep your property uncluttered, smelling really good and light and bright. Make sure the flooring and base boards and fixtures are clean and the furniture is nicely staged.
4. Disclosures and Inspections
We are very familiar with the legal procedures involved in disclosures and are ready to help you develop a thorough disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer, as well as suggest home improvement measures before placing your property on the market. It may be a good idea to hire a professional home inspector to go through your home to give you some ideas of what you may want to repair before placing your home on the market. A little money spent upfront, may mean more money when it comes to closing time!
Presenting your property to potential buyers is a job that we will take care of for you. Buyers feel more comfortable discussing the property with the agent, if you are not there. The Tierra Team will know what information will be most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.
