Three years ago, Gabri (along with her dog Owen) decided it was time to plant some roots and buy a home. This was her first home purchase, so she did not really know where to start, how it all works, who to ask for what, and just what was involved with becoming a homeowner. This is where Housequarters came in.
It’s easy to search the internet for names of home professionals (contractors, real estate brokers, insurance professionals, mortgages, lawyers and more) but then comes the time consuming task of trying to figure out if they are any good. You check reviews, you call friends, you try lead-generation sites, you make lots of calls and even try to find the few pros who will actually engage via email. And then you start to ask yourself…is homeownership really worth all this? Is my valuable time worth all this effort? We agree. That is why Housequarters offers Smarter Homeownership that any house and condo owner can use.
Guiding someone through a home purchase is about more than just getting a deal done. It’s about finding the right property at the right price for the home buyer. Information helps with this and brokering has become even easier in today’s world of ubiquitous information. The best buyer or seller’s agent is going to be the one who understands EVERYTHING about a home, understands how to best leverage technology and information sources, and can discern useful insights from the available data. Housequarters is that type of broker, doing it so well we give money back to buyers, and keep money in the pockets of sellers. We’re not about just doing deals. We’re about forming lifetime relationship with happy homeowners by making homeownership easy.
The real estate market, particularly in the Boston area, is EXTREMELY HOT right now. The basic laws of economics are generally feeding this madness (low supply, high demand) but so is everyone’s desire for instant gratification. Everyone has a dream home in their minds, which is usually the most sought after property or just way out of their price range. The trick is setting priorities, understanding the market conditions, and looking for potential rather than perfection.
