Tour Properties SPECIFIED FOR YOU from the Convenience of Your Own Computer
Looking for homes and property can be fun but it also can be daunting and exhausting. Working with a Savannah or Pooler Georgia real estate agent means you can sit back and let us do the work for you. We will search through hundreds, if not thousands, of homes to find the few that match your budget, lifestyle, search criteria and tastes. I will email you the listings, allow you to browse through the pictures and the information; then you can call me to visit certain homes in person.
But just because I send you 20 homes doesn’t mean you need to personally set foot inside all of them. There are so many ways to look at homes even before you tour the inside. Here’s what I suggest my buyers do when it comes to looking at property and choosing the right one.
Start online. Once you know how much home you can afford you can narrow down your search criteria within that range. If you’re looking for 3 to 5 bedrooms then simply put 3+ homes and the same with bathrooms. Narrow down your online search as much as you can and then view the homes online. But, not every real estate agent does a proper job of displaying pictures. If there are very few images of the home you may want to take a closer look at the neighborhood from the Street view. Google maps have a great feature that allows users to view the home from the street. Simply type in the address at Google maps and click and drag the small orange cursor person to the blue street line in front of the home. From there you can adjust the direction with a green arrow so that you can be facing the house. Google maps will give you what the home looks like as if you were standing in the street. The drawbacks to this can be the age of the picture. If this is a new subdivision, homes on the map may not be built yet. If it’s an established neighborhood within the last five years, chances are the picture that you see on Google maps is going to be very similar in person.
Google maps also give you a good snapshot of where the neighborhood is located in conjunction with schools, shopping centers, parks and major freeways. You can get a good sense of your commute routes, walking distance to parks are schools, and if the street looks busy, if it’s a cul-de-sac or a dead-end Street.
Once you’ve checked out the online MLS images and Google maps you may want to do a drive-by on your own. I highly recommend buyers take a few minutes and actually drive through the neighborhood. Of course, this only works if you live within the Savannah area – (this is where Google maps is great for out of town or state relocations). If you drive through the neighborhood and check out the home and still feel that you like to research the home further and see the inside, give me a call and let’s set up a time to view the property. The last thing anyone wants to do is waste time and energy on homes that just don’t fit the need. So let me do the searching for you; you can check out the neighborhood and then call me for a closer look at the inside of the property.
