Buyer Case Study
SCOTTSDALE, AZ 85262
THE BACK STORY A couple was interested in relocating from Rancho Santa Fe, California. They contacted us through our Zillow partnership to help them find the perfect property to create their new Scottsdale lifestyle. WHAT WE DID We spoke at length with the client asking specific questions that would reveal what they were seeking. We set up search criteria on our MLS portal that would automatically send homes to them for consideration, and also allow them to search for and select others that might be of interest. Prior to their arrival, we visited and previewed multiple properties in which our client was interested, to maximize their time during their visit from
California, and to ensure the properties we visited would meet their needs, and fulfill their wish list items. We also toured the communities in which our client expressed interest so they could not only understand the layout, but also explore the amenities each offered, and the proximity of those amenities to each property. One challenge in the home they decided to purchase was that they wanted to make significant changes to the structure, adding several rooms and an additional garage. During the inspection period, we assisted them in connecting with the HOA design review committee, an architect, and the City of Scottsdale, to ensure they could do the remodeling work they desired. Ultimately, their project was conditionally approved.
The purchase of the home in Arizona was contingent on the sale of their home in Rancho Santa Fe. We were in contact almost daily to provide guidance and support on their Arizona transaction, but also act as a sounding board for their California sale which was complicated by several factors, including the inability of the buyer to secure homeowners insurance due to the California wildfires. THE RESULT After a few tense weeks regarding the California sale, their property closed, and our client moved to Arizona and achieved a smooth close on their new property, and are now enjoying their Scottsdale lifestyle.
