Buyers – purchasing a home is one of the most important & expensive decisions you will ever make. It by no means is an “Easy” process as it can be quite stressful. At No Nonsense Real Estate we guarantee that every home purchase will be a true No Nonsense experience. Upon the 1st conversation with a No Nonsense Realtor you will experience the difference as we will NEVER even start the home buying process until we have assisted you in getting formally pre-approved. Know this pre-qualification letters are absolutely useless, a pre-approval will require you to provide all formal docs to a loan officer allowing you to understand exactly what you can qualify for & what your financial comforts are. It is complete “Nonsense” to start looking at homes, which, you may not be able to afford. All it will do is disappoint you and waste your time. At No Nonsense, time is money & we never waste time.
Unlike many Real Estate brokerages, No Nonsense Real Estate will ALWAYS take time to educate you on the current real estate market. Yes, we actually spend time with every buyer prior to ever showing them a home to explain current market trends, the differences between regular & distressed homes, the drastic variances in home’s conditions & the value impacts, & lastly we review how real estate deals are structured & what to expect. Once we’ve done this, we begin the “house hunting process”.
It is important to understand that you will need to do your home homework as well throughout the home buying process. You cannot just rely on your realtor, as there are realtors out there who unfortunately are not properly educated on your market. At No Nonsense this will NEVER be the case as we train all of our Real Estate Professionals on current market trends, property valuations, contract negotiation, tricks of the trade we have found through our previous successes. No Nonsense will make sure you have all the tools and knowledge to make a sound decision for you and your family. Houses may look great in photos & the prices may seem to be to go good to be true, in most cases they are & there are unseen issues or problems with the home. We have a proven track record of success and we look forward to showing you why this is.
So you feel you are ready to buy a home? We are excited to assist you & share our proven No Nonsense Approach to Buying a Home. Here is more info on what you can expect when working with a No Nonsense Buyer’s Agent:

Receiving a pre-approval is the most crucial aspect to a financed purchase. We cannot start previewing houses until we have a clear understanding of exactly what you qualify for. You do not go test-drive a Ferrari if you are only qualified for a Toyota Camry. It makes no sense and it’s a waste of your time. Furthermore Pre-Approval letters are now required for an offer to be submitted to a seller for acceptance.
