Get pre-approved for financing.

We’ll help you find the right lender for you. Why is pre-approval important?

  • In this fast-paced market only offers with pre-approved buyers will be reviewed by sellers. 
  • You’ll have a better negotiating position.
  • You’ll have  completed the first step in home ownership.
  • You’ll get a better loan by having time to shop for the best loan terms for you.

Determine your wants and actual needs.

What factors are important to you? You’ll need to define your

  • Price Range
  • Location
  • Age of the property
  • Style of home
  • Size
  • Vehicle and other storage
  • Schools
  • Other amenities such as outbuildings, views, play areas, furry-friend requirements

Match your wants and needs with the current market.

Know the market before you buy.

  • What’s the current time on market for the property? What’s the typical list-price-to-sell ration average sales price in the neighborhood?
  • What are all the active homes on the market and are they still available?
  • What homes have sold recently?
  • Obtain neighborhood information about schools, shopping, activities, etc
  • Take a tour  

Select a home and make an offer.

Finding the right home is the fun part. Obtaining that home is the real challenge.

  • Know what to offer in today’s market
  • Make an offer that will be accepted by the seller - it’s not always about the money

Negotiating the best price and other terms for the sale.

Experience counts. We have successfully negotiated hundreds of homes in varying market conditions. Most home owners buy on an average 5 homes throughout their lifetime. Pikes Peak Home Team helps buyers every day with this.


Managing the details of the transaction from contract to closing.

The real work happens between contract acceptance and closing date

  • Ordering the proper inspections
  • Coordinating the proper documentation throughout the transaction
  • Obtaining the title report
  • Working with the lender and title company to make sure all dates and deadlines are adhered to for inspections, appraisal, loan conditions, survey...and many more
