Book Consult

Our consultation isn’t for us to brag about how awesome we are. Instead, it’s to focus on you and your goals, answer any questions, and outline a game plan for your home purchase. Our time together will make the process less stressful and save tons of time.

We’ll also ask you to fill out our intake form which will only take you a few minutes just like when you go to the doctor’s office. This will help us understand exactly what you’re looking for!

Get Prequalified

Imagine shopping on Black Friday without your wallet. By the time you got back, all of the best deals would be gone. That’s what it’s like shopping for a property without having proof of funds or a prequalification.

Getting prequalified before touring homes will give you an idea of what you can buy but it also allows you to be able to make an offer quickly when you do find your dream home.

3

Home Search

Once we know the details about your unique situation and what you’re qualified for, we can start shopping for the perfect property that meets your goals and lifestyle.

Whether you decide to go with a resale home, new construction, or a condo/townhouse we have the expertise to find the property that best fits your wants and needs.

Expert Negotiation

Once you’ve found your perfect home, it’s extremely important to have a professional who has negotiated many six and seven-figure deals by your side. 

The Real Estate market is very competitive and ever-shifting, not having an experienced professional whose job it is to protect your best interest can be a big mistake.

12 Terms of Negotiation

These are the key items that our real estate agents will negotiate on your behalf when buying or selling a house. A skilled agent can add significant value while a bad agent can be a disaster.

Purchase Price

Negotiating the price of the property is one of the primary responsibilities of a real estate agent. We aim to secure the best possible price for our clients.

Earnest Money Deposit

We can negotiate the amount of the earnest money deposit, which is a good faith deposit made by the buyer to show their commitment to the purchase.

Financing Terms

We can negotiate the most favorable financing terms for either the buyer or seller, such as the type of loan, interest rate, and down payment amount. 

Home Repairs

If the inspection reveals issues or needed repairs, we can negotiate to have the repairs completed or to receive a credit or price reduction to cover the cost of repairs.

Closing Costs

We can negotiate to have the buyer or seller cover some or all of the closing costs, including fees such as title insurance, appraisal fees, etc.

i

Contingencies

Negotiating contingencies, such as financing or appraisal, allows the buyer to back out of the deal without losing their earnest money deposit.

Closing Timeline

We can negotiate the closing timeline to accommodate your needs, whether you need to move quickly or require more time to finalize financing or logistics.

Leaseback Agreements

In certain situations, we can negotiate a deal for the buyer to allow the seller to pay rent and stay in the property for a specified period after closing.

Inclusions/Exclusions

We can negotiate what items will be included or excluded in the purchase contract, such as appliances, fixtures, or furniture.

Contingent Upon Sale

If the buyer needs to sell their current home, we can negotiate a contingent sale clause, making the purchase contingent upon selling their existing property.

Home Warranty

We can negotiate for the seller to provide a home warranty, to provide the buyer with peace of mind regarding repairs of major home systems or appliances.

Concessions

We can negotiate for the seller to provide concessions, such as buying down the buyer's interest rate or paying for specific upgrades or renovations to the property.

I had the pleasure of working with Kari Hazeltine for the sale of my existing home and purchase of my new home. I couldn’t be more impressed with the level of service and expertise provided. Kari was patient, responsive and always available to answer any questions or concerns I had throughout the entire process. Kari was incredibly proactive in negotiating the terms of the purchase and the sale of the homes, ensuring that I received the best possible deals. In regard to her efforts with the sale of my prior home, the professional pictures were amazing. Her photographers were beyond expectations, and the listing was professionally and eloquently worded to draw in buyers. Our home was listed and sold within six days at the price and closing date we wanted, very impressive! Thanks to Kari’s hard-working dedication I am now the proud owner of a home that exceeds all my expectations. I highly recommend Kari Hazeltine at 54 Realty to anyone in search of a knowledgeable, trustworthy and dedicated real estate agent. Thank you for making the home-buying process such a positive and rewarding experience!

I recently purchased a house with the help of our realtor, Mike Gerrity. Mike was amazing from the start. He listened to all of our needs and was open to scheduling viewings last minute. This was extremely helpful, as my husband and I tend to have overlapping schedules. He remained professional throughout the process, was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions we threw his way. We couldn’t ask for a smoother process! Thanks again Mike!
