Buying Your Central Valley Home

A major purchase can be stressful- it requires tedious research, consideration and thought, careful analysis, opinions... and we understand that your home buying isn’t any different. You may think the hardest decisions you’ll have to make is location, or right number of bathroom/bedroom spaces, or size of your yard, but in truth, there are many other factors that require just as much attention in your home search.

We will be there every step of the way, from the moment you step on the first property to the moment you are handed your new set of bright, shiny keys to the right property. We’ll even help you with the tough questions: Best mortgage rates? Not every broker will offer the same programs and rates, and we will be there to ensure you make the best decision.

You probably have a list of everything you want or need for your new home. It is our duty to help you create that list and look high and low to find the best home for you. If competition arises and you need to write a backup offer or have contingencies, we can assist with that as well.

Consider Nearby Schools When Buying a Home.

One of the most important factors you think of when you relocate is how your kids will feel about it. When searching for their new school, you must take into account the hours, sessions, test score ranking, teacher recommendations. Every district is different, but this fact remains the same: no place will make a good home for your children without a great school. Due to this, local schools are bound to have an effect on certain elements of buying your home, from resale value, to property taxes.

What Research Can Help When Purchasing a Central Valley Home?

Knowing your facts (and working with an agent that knows the Central Valley) can help immensely in home buying. You have to make sure you know and are comfortable with everything, from local schools to crime statistics, from market trends and property values. Here are some resources that can help you get started on any research that you may want to do, next to asking us for help.

General City Info - City Data (Also check out individual town websites.)

Local Businesses - Yelp

Crime Stats - Neighborhood Scout

Predators & Sex Offenders - Federal Resource School Statistics

Great Schools - The school district and individual school will be different anywhere you go, so make sure you carefully consider the ones located near your home. Rather than focusing on yearly scores, look at general trends, the spending habits, teacher turn-over rate, and, very importantly, your satisfaction as a parent. This will give you a good idea of the overall atmosphere, along with traditional API scores.
