Buying a home with our agents has never been easier, thanks to the use of modern technology and the in-house computer software used at SGE Realty.
SGE Realty can locate every home, matching your desired criteria in just seconds and keep you updated every time a new home you might be interested in enters the market. This saves you a great deal of time searching and checking for daily updates. The system will email you every time there is a new suggestion automatically.
Before the home searching wheels are fully in motion, SGE Realty kindly asks each individual client to meet with a mortgage advisor to find out how much you can afford to pay for a home. This is a great way to know your exact budget before you start.
Pre-Approval is the first stage in knowing your exact maximum budget based upon your status, of course not everyone purchases the most expensive property they can afford, but it does prevent you from being disappointed if you were to select a home out of your price range, it also lets sellers and agents know you are serious about finding a home.
An effective way to start your search once you are pre-approved is to write out a list stating the criteria of your desired home, the best way to start is by listing the basics such as how many bedrooms, bathrooms, the area you would like to buy in and the size of the property. You also might like to include other features you desire such as a pool, jacuzzi, wooden floors and marble bathrooms. Whatever you desire… make sure to list it and let our agents know.
When you receive a suggestion you like, simply let an agent at SGE Realty know you would like to view a particular property in person and this will be organized at the earliest convenience.
An agent can then meet you at the property or in some special cases can collect you and drive you to the desired home. You will then be given a thorough showing of the home and any questions you have on the property will be answered in detail.
This procedure is then repeated until the agent has successfully found you your dream home.
Once the dream home is located, an agent at SGE Realty will submit your offer on the home to the seller and begin to negotiate on your behalf. As soon as a price is agreed upon by both parties, SGE Realty will handle all of the contract procedures for you and explain anything you may not already understand. Your deposit will go into escrow (A third party) and various inspections will be made on the property to guarantee you are buying a safe and secure investment with no faults or potential problems.
After this process takes place, signed contracts exchange, final payments are made and keys are transferred to yourself, the new home owner.

Selling a home consists of a lot more than simply putting up a “For Sale” sign…
It is the duty of SGE Realty to know your property inside-out and to become familiar with facts and details such as property taxes, zoning, square footage, lot size, and terms of your existing loan.
SGE Realty researches the current market and property laws to be fully aware of how much similar homes in the same area are on the market for. The agents at SGE Realty also have a great understanding of the property disclosure laws needed to be taken into consideration along with the terms of sales.
As soon as the specifics regarding your home are taken fully into account, SGE Realty strategically compares your home to other similar properties selling in your neighborhood before suggesting a realistic price for you to place on your property.
The next step is the “walk through” a dedicated agent will take a detailed look at the property, both inside and out through the eyes of a buyer or home inspector. There may be items that need repairing or replacing or in some cases items that are simply better off being removed. An attractive home that is impeccably maintained is precisely what is required in assisting you in receiving the full asking price on your property.
During the walk through an agent will consider the following:
The interior paint and finishes to make sure they are in superb condition and recently updated. An agent may suggest ideas and ways to make your home more marketable such as color changes and new accessories, this is usually one of the most cost effective ways to make your home stand out against the crowd.
The flooring; it is important to make sure the wooden floors, carpets and tiles are in great condition, this can sometimes be as easy as a thorough clean and polish or simply replacing a few tiles.
The appliances; checking they are in working order. Modern appliances are a plus.
Plumbing and electrical systems should be fully functional too.
Light fixtures, good lighting and making sure all bulbs are fitted and in working order.
Sealants surrounding the bath, shower, sinks and windows.
SGE Realty pays fine attention to the outside of your property.
First impressions are everything.
SGE Realty suggests strategic ideas and solutions to increase the curb appeal of your home. This may mean a fresh coat of paint, a change of color or simply removing a hedge or fixing a gate.
The lawn and landscape should be precise and immaculate.
Unnecessary items, such as bird houses, statues, toys, garden signs are often better off in storage, this can help to show the gardens full size and potential.
A strong high-end front door makes every home look and feel more secure
A clear and tidy inviting entrance free of leaves and dirt is highly recommended.
Sparkly windows and window frames are a pleasure to the eye.
The roofing and gutters are stable and secured correctly, in fully functional order
Balconies should also be cleared of any clutter and thoroughly cleaned.
An agent will keep detailed descriptive notes of everything that requires repair or replacement during the inspection along with any changes that may be considered advantageous.
