What you can expect when you buy a home with the Erdal Swartz Team

In our digital world, we know curious buyers may prefer to search online for properties rather than waiting for an agent to present them with homes matching their criteria. We’re always excited to go down this path with our buyers but want to reinforce that finding the right home is only one of many tasks in the homebuying process.

As Silicon Valley’s leading real estate team, we’ll not only search 24/7 to identify homes that fit your needs and dreams, we’ll also focus on getting your offer accepted for a fair price and paving a smooth path to the closing table. While we tailor every experience to each individual buyer, here’s a short list of what you can expect when working with us.

When you buy with us, we will:

  • Give you a start-to-closing understanding of the buying process. Read the four stages of buying a home.

  • Narrow your search to the neighborhoods, home types and school districts that will work best for your wants and needs. See our buyer checklist.

  • Give you accurate real-time sales data (Zillow can’t do that!) and honest feedback about current market conditions.

  • Go beyond local prices and public record data to evaluate a home’s value. We have insider knowledge on pending sales prices, off-market or private sales and special circumstances or incentives like “rent backs”. Only a true neighborhood expert can tap local resources to help inform a smarter offer.

  • Advocate on your behalf to the listing agent and seller.

  • Protect you from risk and potential litigation.

  • Help you understand a property’s “disclosure package” so you can prepare and prioritize necessary home repairs.

  • Advise on the cost of repairs and maintenance, and recommend trusted inspectors, contractors and home maintenance professionals.

  • Create an offer strategy to get you the best terms and sales price.

  • Negotiate with the seller and listing agent to win the offer.

  • Prevent any escrow and lender delays as the closing approaches.

  • Deliver you the keys to your new home!

Whether it’s your first or third time buying a home, it can feel like a daunting process.  When you buy with us, you can continue with life as usual while Silicon Valley’s leading real estate team works zealously to find and close on the home of your dreams.
