Buyer's Guide

GETTING STARTED IN THE BUYING PROCESS

Navigating the home buying process in San Francisco or in Marin County can be daunting, but with the right guidance, it can be a rewarding experience. Starting with the right real estate agent is crucial for finding your dream home. Jeff Marples, with over 20 years of local experience, can help you find that dream house in one of the many San Francisco neighborhoods or in Marin's best cities.

Before starting your property search, however, it's crucial to carefully consider your budget and financing options. Working with a reputable lender can help buyers secure favorable financing terms for their home purchase. It’s always good to be prepared and understand the costs upfront along with the benefits of owning real estate.

Understanding your budget will also help dictate the best neighborhoods to search in. Finding the perfect neighborhood that meets your criteria and lifestyle is key to success and long-term happiness within the home.

DRIVE. PASSION & EXPERIENCE

Jeff is very knowledgeable about the local markets in both counties and has access to a wide range of homes and condos for sale, including off-market opportunities in San Francisco and in Marin.

He can easily guide you in familiarizing yourself with the local markets and neighborhoods before making any decisions, especially for first time home buyers.

Once you find the “right” home, conducting our own assessment is critical to understanding property values and to protect you from any potential issues. For instance, home inspections are an essential step in the home buying process and will ensure you a full knowledge of the overall condition of the home and systems.

Negotiating the purchase price and favorable terms in a purchase contract requires careful consideration of market conditions, property values and the property itself.  Additionally, Jeff will help you understand closing costs, your rights, and responsibilities when entering into a real estate transaction. He and his team are very good at supporting buyer clients, managing the transaction files, troubleshooting items as they arise, and there to satisfy your concerns and needs every step of the way.
