Building your team is key to a smooth transaction, below are necessary members to the process.
Real Estate Agent: They will serve as your point person throughout the entire process from start to finish. Your agent will be able to advise you on a home’s current market value, assess budget and pricing, navigate negotiations, and much more. Me and my team will share our resource team with you as needed during the process.
CPA/Financial Advisor: He or she will know your financial health and as they know of your particular situation can advise on what type of tax planning should be part of your decision making process.
Attorney: In California, a real estate attorney isn’t technically necessary for a successful real estate transaction but should an issue arise I can refer you. They can add value in a number of ways, but we always recommend you speak with an attorney about the benefits of holding your property in a trust. If you need a referral to an estate planning attorney I work with several and can give you a referral.
The Lender: Along with your CPA, a lender can help you choose the right loan product based on your income levels and structure. Need a good lender? I can refer you!
Escrow: The escrow company is a neutral party that facilitates the transaction, they prepare the escrow paperwork, communicate with the lender and collect earnest money and down payment funds to close.
