Smooth and Stress Free Transaction
You’ve heard the horror stories about last minute problems that delay settlement—after you’ve already loaded all your worldly possessions onto a moving truck. Skip the nightmare! Ed has identified the best inspectors, mortgage professionals, and title companies to assure you of a smooth transaction that settles right on time.
The Secret to a Successful Offer
Many people believe that price is the only concern of a seller. There are often other issues that are more important to a seller. Ed Keeler has become very successful at learning about the seller’s needs and being creative in writing your offer. As a result, we can often save you money and help to get you the home of your dreams.
Discover Property Defects Before Making an Offer
Often buyers fall in love with a house, but fail to notice potential problems or items that could be huge expenses after a purchase. Since the home inspection is conducted after the offer is negotiated, they’re surprised when the home inspector identifies problems. This places the buyer in the difficult situation of trying to negotiate major repairs by the seller. Ed can help you to avoid many of these difficulties by pointing out potential problems as you view the home.
