With the large amount of websites available with information regarding Oakland homes for sale, it seems that picking out your new home should be easier, because there is so much to choose from.  However, with the variety of choices offered to you, my job as your real estate agent is to assist you to find just the right home in the most efficient manner.  Here are some ideas to consider in working with me as your agent:

1. Be as specific as possible about your needs--  No one wants spend hours touring homes that are not suitable.  Once you decide your price range for purchasing, it is worth your time to look through the matching choices on my website, and then spend time analyzing what appeals to you and why.  You will soon see things that are consistent among the homes that attract you.  Perhaps a big yard, a large garden or 3 bedrooms.  Other things include school district, parks, commute times, etc.. Write these down, and I will begin to search for the closest of matches, and arrange for you to see them.

2. Plan sufficient time for our home tours--While I will try to make the home tours that we take productive for you, know that touring a house effectively takes time.  Some houses will be easily rejected, and some will be so attractive, that you will want to tour every part of it slowly and carefully.  You might want extra time to write an offer if you find something extra special.  So, don't rush yourself in scheduling your viewings--give yourself a cushion for consideration. 

3. Feel free to be frank--If the houses that we see are not working for you, feel free to say so as quickly as possible, and I will change the direction in your favor.  Sometimes, you really don't know what you like and don't like until you begin the actual search, and see what's available. 

We will work on fine tuning your search for you.  The most effective search is the one that is carefully directed by you and your needs.  It will be my pleasure to assist you in finding that perfect home.
