Residential Real Estate
When it comes time to buy a home, there are many things to think about. My name is Derek Worchel and I can help make buying a home much easier. I have more than 10 years of experience in real estate, investing, and construction. This means that I can answer almost any question you might have.
Below are a few steps that will help acquaint you with the buying process.
The housing market is improving but some customers need help in getting the best loan possible. There are many banks and mortgage lenders who want your business so I will help you find the right one. Different loan programs have different features and benefits. All Services Real Estate sorts them out to get you great interest rates and loan servicing.
Narrowing down the choices
Once you are approved for a loan, I’ll list the things you want and don’t want in your new home. I am very familiar with cities of Bellingham, Birch Bay, Blaine, Fairhaven, Ferndale and Lynden as well as the wider Whatcom County area so I can give you background information about various locations.
- Type of neighborhood
- Schools in the area
- Ease of transportation
- Size of property
- Size of house and number of bedrooms
- Basement, garage, deck or patio, dining room, and other features
- Average taxes and utility costs
Finding the right home
My experience and connections help to find homes that are both on and off the market. That means that you have the widest possible number of properties to choose from. I use MLS listing searches and other internet sites to find the most active listings and to know when a new property comes on the market. My office has many social connections on popular networks such as Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates on available homes.
Open house and private tours
Once I create a list of properties that you are interested in, I’ll start looking at them in person. I will go with you to any open house to speak with the realtor showing the property. I can also call ahead and visit properties at your convenience – in the evenings or on the weekend.
All Services Real Estate has a partner business, All Services Property Maintenance. I am a licensed building contractor and this gives you an edge as you look at a variety of properties. My professional eye is always looking for structural imperfections. I can then use this knowledge in negotiations to have the owner fix things, bring down the price of a home or advise you to avoid it all together.
I will gladly provide discounts for upgrades or renovations once you have purchased a home. This is part of my full service promise.
