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. Call me today to get started. 206-708-9800
