Patti Gilman - 2010, 2011 Detroit Realtor Hall of Fame

With 20 years experience and $120 million in sales throughout Oakland, Lapeer and Genesee Counties (MI) I have given buyers and sellers options specifically designed for these tough economic times. Whether you're transferring to or from Michigan, looking to get the best sale price for your home (and the help to price it so it WILL sell), or need to sell or buy using a Short Sale option, I can help you like I've helped the hundreds of customers I've worked with over the years.

So whether you're buying or selling, feel free to contact me and I will be happy to assist you in making that next big step for you and/or your family.

Why Use a REALTOR® When Buying a Home?

A real estate agent can help you understand everything you need to know about the home buying process.

Not all real estate licensees are the same; only those who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR " ®" trademark on their business cards and other marketing and sales literature.

REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reported that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.

Real estate transactions involve one of the biggest financial investments of most people’s lifetime. Transactions today usually exceed $250,000. If you had a $250,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a certified professional accountant? If you had a $250,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney? Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be wise to work with a professional REALTOR® when you are buying a home.

If you're still not convinced of the value of a REALTOR®, here are more reasons to use one:

1. Your REALTOR® can help you determine your buying power - that is, your financial reserves plus your borrowing capacity. If you give a REALTOR® some basic information about your available savings, income and current debt, he or she can refer you to lenders best qualified to help you. Most lenders - banks and mortgage companies - offer limited choices.

2. Your REALTOR® has many resources to assist you in your home search. Sometimes the property you are seeking is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some investigation by your agent to find all available properties.

3. Your REALTOR® can assist you in the selection process by providing objective information about each property. Agents who are REALTORS® have access to a variety of informational resources. REALTORS® can provide local community information on utilities, zoning, schools, etc. There are two things you'll want to know: First, will the property provide the environment I want for a home or investment? Second, will the property have resale value when I am ready to sell?

4. Your REALTOR® can help you with negotiations and inspections. There are many negotiating factors, including but not limited to price, financing, terms, date of possession and often the inclusion or exclusion of repairs and furnishings or appliances. The purchase agreement should allow time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Your agent can advise you as to which investigations and inspections are recommended or required.

5. Your REALTOR® provides due diligence during the property evaluation. Depending on the area and property, this could include inspections for termites, dry rot, asbestos, faulty structure, roof condition, septic tank and well tests, just to name a few. Your REALTOR® can assist you in finding qualified responsible professionals to do most of these investigations and provide you with written reports.
You will also want to see a preliminary report on the property title. Title indicates ownership of property and can be mired in confusing status of past owners or rights of access. The title to most properties will have some limitations; for example, easements (access rights) for utilities. Your REALTOR®, title search company or attorney can help you resolve issues that might cause problems at a later date.

6. Your REALTOR® can help you understand different financing options and identify qualified lenders.

7. Your REALTOR® can guide you through the closing process and make sure everything flows together smoothly.

10/29/2018 - speedy0173

I have used Patti recently for both selling and buying homes in the Clarkston area. Her knowledge of both the complex processes of buying and selling, combined with her unsurpassed knowledge of the Clarkston and surrounding areas make her a great choice. She brings a great attitude and is faster to respond than usually I can keep up. Great choice!

No need to look any farther - Patti is the best of the best. I loved my condo, but it was time to move on. Selling was an emotional rollercoaster ride, but Patti came thru as a true professional and handled all the details, making my move so much easier. I don't hand out recommendations very easily, especially when it comes to a decision as large as buying or selling a house. But I do not hesitate to recommend Patti. Save yourself a lot of grief - and time. Give Patti a call. You'll be glad you did.
