Buying or Selling a Home in Seattle

If you are considering buying a home in Seattle, it is wise to first explore which of the many great Seattle neighborhoods would best fit your lifestyle and interests. There are many things to consider such as convenience to your work and/or activities, whether you prefer an energetic neighborhood or a slower paced feel, schools if you have children, and the style of home you will love!

Having lived in Madison Park for 25 years, Val is an expert on the following Seattle neighborhoods: Broadmoor, Denny-Blaine, Leschi, Madison Park, Madrona, Mount Baker and Washington Park, although Val and her team have done business all over the Northwest and can find you the perfect home anywhere in the greater Seattle area, including Bellevue, Kirkland, and the entire East Side.

A few key points:

A building inspection is a good investment. A competent inspector will present the buyer with all aspects of a property’s condition and will indicate if there are any needed repairs immediately or in the near future. This information is useful in negotiating the purchase price and taking into consideration the cost of any such repairs.

Contact a lender of your choice during the process. A pre-qualification letter is needed, to enable you to act quickly when presenting an offer.

Personal integrity and ethics are the foundation of my business. Today many Brokers require clients to sign a buyer’s agreement, but I value your handshake as your commitment to me throughout the buying process.
