Thinking of buying a home on your own?

Buying or selling a home can be a daunting task no matter what your circumstances. But if you are single, with or without kids, it's easy to imagine feeling overwhelmed.

Being a Realtor who has personally experienced buying a home on my own, I am well qualified to help you navigate the real estate byways. I provide a number of tools and resources that are particularly helpful for individuals buying and/or selling a home on their own. Here are a few examples:

> Free, one-on-one consultation: No pressure, no obligation. You and I sit down together for 15 or 20 minutes to examine your options and determine your best "next steps", even if it turns out to be renting.

> Lifestyle Questionnaire: designed to help you identify your homeownership preferences and priorities.

> "Express" Homebuyer Workshop: a 2-hr., information-packed seminar for individuals and small groups, designed to answer all your questions, however basic or advanced, and set you on the fast track to home ownership.

> "Express" Homeseller Workshop: same as above except directed toward sellers.

> "One-Click" Small Home Search: I have created four separate searches for various parts of Seattle. One click will produce a list of all Active Listings of small homes in any given geographic area. The link provided here is for small homes in West Seattle.

> Single Homebuyers' Network: an opportunity to meet (either in person or online) with other individuals who are considering/experiencing the homebuying process. This is a new offering, still in the conceptual stages, so you can help shape its future.

> Downpayment Assistance information: the State of Washington sponsors several programs designed to help you buy a home, including help with the downpayment.

These resources will help make the process of buying a home much easier than you thought possible.

Great information...I like you am a real estate professional and have found that more and more of my business in the Bay Area has come from single women. So this year we started the Independent Women Homeowner Network, helping women connect with local teams of women professionals who can help them achieve their goals. We would love to have you join us...check out our site: www.WomenHomeowners.com
