iconFinding Your Property to Call Home

Nobody will work harder to discover the most opportunities for you in the competitive real estate market than Equity Vantage Real Estate. After working closely with you to understand your lifestyle wants and needs in conjunction with your financial situation, we will schedule appointments to tour homes that fit your specific situation. We will walk through all of the aspects of various properties and the pluses and minuses of each neighborhood in order to help you decide which home is right for you. We will also keep you up to date on the latest market conditions (i.e., inventory, days on market, absorption rates, multiple bids, property values, interest rates, etc.) and what each of these means so you can make the most informed decision and maximize your equity investment.

iconStructure and Negotiate Your Offer Like
the Purchase of a Business

Equity Vantage Real Estate works with buyers to ensure we present the most complete and compelling offer possible. Price and financing terms are just two of several factors’ sellers consider when evaluating an offer. A thorough, well-prepared and creative offer from a top agent often is the deciding factor for a seller assessing multiple offers. Having a strong negotiator who is advocating for your best interest is critical.

iconNetwork of Professionals for a
Seamless transaction

The real estate transaction involves various professionals from your agent, lender, home inspector, title company, escrow, contractor, movers, and other industry professionals. We have established relationships with these professionals and receiving a recommendation and referral from someone you know and can trust makes all the difference. As part of Equity Vantage’s concierge level of buyer service, we will refer you to reliable and trustworthy mortgage brokers, title and escrow companies, home inspectors, contractors, movers, and other related vendors. Based on our relationships with these carefully selected vendors, we are confident they will provide the same level of service that we provide of value, reliability, and authenticity.

iconLocal Market Expertise and a
dedicated team

Being in-the-know and connected to opportunities both on- and off-market is absolutely critical for any buyer in this market. As a team with local market knowledge and community involvement having lived and breathed in our neighborhoods for decades coupled with being a trusted real estate brokerage with a reputation for thoroughness, professionalism, and authenticity, we will find those homes that best position you from a strategic standpoint against the competition.

Buying Process

Evaluation, Research & Analysis

Our objective is to know what your dreams of real estate ownership are and the lifestyle that you envision within your home. Our detailed evaluation of your must-have and nice-to-have that fits within your budget will allow us to do the proper research to present you with your opportunities in your desired market.

Roadmap Planning

During this stage, we will walk you through all the steps of your transaction and how that fits within your timeline. We want you to be prepared and confident going into the buying process knowing upfront all the necessary steps to set the expectation and avoid any surprises that could derail your goals.

Execute & Monitor

This is the fun part. Based on the first two steps, we find properties that meet your criteria, go through the financials from a budget and potential return-on-equity, and go out and make offers. Once an offer that is accepted, we monitor your transaction every step of the way with a detailed checklist shared with you so you know what steps are complete, open, and critical path to homeownership.
