Buying a Home in San Diego

The chart below, provided by the California Association of Realtors, is an excellent reminder that there are many components to consider when buying a home in San Diego.  That is why it is so important to have a trusted real estate agent helping you every step of the way.  As a full time professional for over 14 years, I have the knowledge and experience to point out many of the pitfalls buyers often over look on their tour of homes.  While finding the perfect “fit” is an important piece to the home buying process, in truth it is just the beginning.  Overlooking a homes location, lot orientation, condition, deferred maintenance and so on, can have big impacts after closing.  I believe in honestly and I always point out the “good, the bad and the ugly” to my clients as we tour prospective homes.  I often hear “gee Tami we didn’t even think of this and we are so glad you pointed it out to us”.  In the end, I might spend more time with my clients than other agents, but their happiness is worth all the time in the world to me and ultimately we do find the perfect home.  So if you are looking to purchase, or know someone looking to purchase a home in San Diego, give me a ring today- I’d love to help.
