Have Questions About Buying?

Check out our FAQs for buying real estate in The bay area and beyond.

It is difficult to argue with all of the quality traits experienced real estate sales representatives bring to the table: seasoned negotiating skills, a rich understanding of the local housing landscape, expert knowledge, and in-depth advice for home sellers on how to approach the process. As a licensed Realtor®, I hold myself to a higher level of ideals and follow a meticulous Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. As a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the Monterey County Association of Realtors.

As a buyer, YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PAY a few cash/out of pocket expenses up front. Although each expense will vary depending on the transaction. When you are ready to make an offer on a home, Here are the initial expenses to be prepared for

Earnest Money- Typically 3-5% of purchase price.

Home Inspections- Average range $350-1,500 Depending on type of inspection and property type.

Appraisals- Depending on timeframe and location $500-1,500

 

NOT GETTING PRE APPROVED convinced a home purchase is in the near future? Your initial step should be to speak with a qualified lender about how much you can afford to spend. This one step will save you considerable time by allowing you to preview homes you can confidently afford, rather than pursuing properties outside of your determined price range. Also, pre-approval status puts you in a better position over another bidder who is not pre-approved. If you don’t already have a lender you trust, don’t worry — I can help you out there.

Where are the nearest public transportation hubs? What kind of businesses are nearby? What is the quality of school systems in the area? Questions like these, and others, are necessary as you begin your home search with the “big picture” of your preferred environment. It’s important to ensure you are near useful amenities, utilities, etc.

What My Buyer Clients Have to Say

KIND WORDS

Lacey was amazing from day 1. We really hit it off from the first meeting and felt she understood what we were looking for. She went above and beyond in finding us the right home for our situation. We had a difficult and not straight forward escrow and she handled it all like a true professional. We can’t recommend her enough- she really goes to bat for you and we are so grateful to be in our new home, thanks to her!

Lacey found a buyer for our townhouse in Carmel without even listing. Her professionalism, honesty, integrity and constant communication allowed us to feel extremely confident in her abilities. We definitely recommend her for your real estate needs.

Lacey was more helpful than I could have imagined. I’m a veteran using a GI bill loan, which can usually make thing extra difficult. On top of that, we were on a tome crunch because the sellers were in a hurry. In 30 days she got my deal put together and completed! She handled everything! Even now, after closing, she is still there helping me out with questions I may have. I highly recommend!

I can't say enough positive things about Lacey. She was incredible to work with and I would highly recommend her. She was extremely patient and listened to our wants and desires (which wasn't always easy because my husband and I were looking for very different things!). She always made herself available to show us properties we were interested in, and reassured us that we would eventually find the perfect property for our family. Persistence paid off, and we finally have the perfect home that suits all of our needs. If you are looking for an agent to work with who knows the entire Monterey Bay area, you can't go wrong working with Lacey.

Lacey was great. She made the process easy to understand and guided us through since this was our first home buying process. She also assisted in securing us a loan officer she works with that made it easier because communication was very good.

Five stars are not justifiable for Lacey Deverick’s excellent work. Lacey Deverick was the most helpful and caring realtor I have ever experienced. She was there for us since the first day all up into we received the keys. She went above and beyond with us throughout the process, any time we had doubts or questions she was there with an answer and if she didn’t have an answer she would find an answer for us. I would highly recommend Lacey Deverick as her service is one of a kind.
