Searching made easy.
Did you know there used to be a time when you had to go physically and only physically to view a home?
Searching for a home used to be an extremely manual and an in-person process. Realtors had all of the homes for sale information in a paper book that was printed one time a week. If you were relocating from across the country a real estate professional likely had to assess the home on your behalf because the cost to travel to view the property may be unrealistic to put in an offer or to stay at the pace of a competitive market. The real estate home searching landscape has changed dramatically since the internet came to be. Now with the use of pictures and video, as well as unique technologies, most buyers begin their home search on their own without a real estate professional. They actually enjoy this aspect of home buying until they are ready to get serious about the timeframe for purchasing a home.
When buying a home, you must consider options matching your budget. What can you afford and compare the homes for sale apples to apples? If you don’t do this, you can often attach unrealistic expectations to your real estate journey. A real estate professional can help you know what to search for to ensure you correctly assess the listings and apply the suitable filters. We recommend that you first create a list of what you must-have, would-like, and don’t want. This list can help you and your agent guide your search. This will also tell you what is and isn’t realistic for your price range.
Once you know your price range and specifications, we recommend that you perform regular searches and send anything you like to your agent. They will check the status of any homes for sale that you see and want more information on and can then begin scheduling showings for you to view the property or properties. If you are local, you can do this in person. You can do a facetime or virtual showing if you do not currently live in Cheyenne. So many extraordinary options are now available to empower buyers throughout the process, and using technology is one of them.
We believe the technology tools that are in place now for home buyers to narrow down the list of properties they want to take their time to see is a great benefit to the home shopping process. It’s rewarding working with RE/MAX, LLC the #1 global brand in real estate and a network of 140,000+ agents, as we receive referrals for people relocating to Cheyenne from all over and we know that regardless of where they are the technology experience will be the same.
