Buying a Home in Bend with Carrie

“It was an absolute pleasure working with Carrie as first time home buyers. She not only helped us find our perfect home but was also an excellent coach! We can confidently say her primary focus is finding the perfect home for her clients. This came to light when she constantly reminded us to be patient and wait for the right moment, especially in times when we were blind to it. I highly recommend Carrie to anyone interested in buying a home! She has years of experience and a wealth of knowledge to offer.”

Buying a home in Central Oregon

Are you in the market for a new home? Whether it’s your first time trying to buy a home or looking to upgrade, navigating the real estate market on your own can be challenging. That’s why it’s important to find the right real estate agent to help you through the process.

When working with Carrie DiTullio Real Estate, we’ll navigate together from start to finish. You’ll get our valuable advice and experienced insight to make the process hassle-free and quick. Along with this, you’ll have other benefits such as:

  • Personalized Service: We’ll conduct a buyer counseling session to discuss your needs and goals and plan a comprehensive search for your property. After that, I perform a complete search of homes in the Central Oregon Multiple Listing Service (COAR MLS) to find one that meets your criteria.
  • Integrity, Confidentiality: Review the Disclosed Limited Agency Agreement for Buyers form with you, which outlines my duties and responsibilities to you as your exclusive representative. Everything will be explained to you in detail, so you can trust you’re in good hands.
  • Online Client Portal: Create a private online portal to display the homes in COAR MLS that meet your criteria. The portal will alert you by email when new listings come on the market you need to see.
  • Support Team: Provide you our top recommendations for qualified and vetted lenders, home inspectors, title companies, and attorneys.

We make the home buying process hassle-free and quick …

Search for the Perfect Home

  • Lender Pre-approval: We arrange a pre-qualification interview with the lender of your choice to obtain a pre-approval letter. This is critical in establishing a strong position for negotiations.
  • Preview Properties: Preview homes before scheduling a showing to ensure the homes meet your criteria.
  • Schedule Showings: We’ll contact listing agents and/or sellers to schedule showings and accompany you to all showings.
  • Property Evaluations: Critique every home and discuss the positive and negative features that may affect its value and future resale.
  • Market Analysis: We provide a detailed Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) of comparable sales in neighborhoods of homes we are considering to establish a baseline for possible negotiations.

Time to Negotiate

  • Negotiation Strategy: We’ll prepare a negotiation strategy for a property you have selected, including the CMA, property history, and tax records.
  • Offer Preparation: We advise you on structuring an appropriate offer that advances your best interests. We’ll prepare the Purchase Agreement with terms approved by you.
  • Offer Presentation: We endeavor to present your offer directly to the seller in the presence of the listing broker.
  • Estimate of Funds Required: We’ll provide you with a preliminary estimate of closing costs.

Close The Deal

  • Time Management: We’ll ensure that all timelines are met, such as inspections, appraisals, and removal of contingencies. I’ll monitor and inform you of the progress of the Purchase Agreement during the entire process.
  • Review of Sellers Disclosure: We’ll thoroughly review the seller’s disclosure statement to enable you to accept or specify the remedy. Remedies will be addressed in the purchase agreement.
  • Walk-Through: We’ll accompany you on a thorough walk-through of the home before closing and assist you in dealing with any problems that may be discovered.
  • Closing the Sale: We’ll accompany you and represent you at closing. I will obtain the keys and help you take possession of your new home. A bottle of wine may be in order.
  • After-Sale Service: We’ll contact you after closing to follow up on the remaining details or service needs.
