4. Finding Your Next Home- Hidden Gems

Hidden Gems

When none of the homes for sale meet your needs, wants or dreams

Waco Home Team is ready to help you move in the right direction. What if you are looking for something specific, something that may not be on the market‽ This seems unlikely, but with historically low housing inventory it is becoming more and more common. Fortunately, Waco Home Team’s Feet-on-the-Street campaign will dig up that hidden gem!

Realtors getting their hands dirty!?! What? Waco Home Team has a plan.

You Can’t Always Get What You Want…

The first step is to understand exactly what you are looking for in your next home. This includes a comprehensive consultation and interview. During the interview we will uncover your Wants and Needs. Further, you may come to understand where you and your buying partner may differ and where you may need to compromise with each other. Home search parameters are set in order of importance. The most common are:

  1. Area (schools, topography, proximity to, away from…)
  2. Time Frame (now, 3 months, medical, family, school year, job requirements)
  3. Financing (How much I can afford vs. my budget)
  4. Wants, Needs, Desires (3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, swimming pool, garage)
  5. Compromises (who loves who more!)

…But If You Try, Some times

Next we will look at homes currently on the market based on our conversations. If a suitable home is not found, Waco Home Team employs several strategies to uncover other opportunities. They may include:

  • Letters expressing interest to a desired neighborhood
  • Door knocking
  • Pay-Per-Click advertising
  • Social Media
  • Word of Mouth
  • Reverse Prospecting via Database

You Just Might Find…

Sometimes new off market opportunities present themselves and a creative approach to finding your dream home may be needed. Fortunately, Waco Home Team is ready for the challenge. We will manage this move with a smile and you will love the outrageously awesome experience! We’re committed to finding you exactly what you want…we do it all the time. Who you work with matters.
