Are you sure? I mean really sure…and how do I know?

Just because you want to buy is only half the equation. Being a bona fide buyer is something that you need to prove. Especially in today’s funky market because sellers never accept offers without proof of a buyer’s viability.

By prove, I mean:

1) If you are a cash buyer, have a Proof Of Funds Letter (POF) ready to give the good reverend before we even schedule a showing or

2) If you are financing your purchase, have an Automated Underwriting System (AUS) Pre-Approval for me (NOT a Pre-Qualification letter).

I am always happy to create a customized property search for you that will tempt your tummy, and have you ready to go kick some tires this afternoon, but I’m not taking even one nanosecond to set an appointment until you have demonstrated your bona fides upfront…with god as our witness.

Simply put: Time and deep market knowledge are the reverend’s only commodities for hire and you get both in spades once I verify that you are viable.

Don’t be insulted. You may very well be a ‘big macher’ and will assuredly be treated as such, but if you want to ‘get a sense of the market’ or ‘see whats out there,’ you can do that from the comfort of your own home, in front of your own computer without getting out of your ‘big macher’ pajamas.

The last thing we want to do is waste (aside from our time) other agents’ and their seller clients’ time. This tarnishes the reverend’s reputation on the street and he ain’t fiddina let that happen.

So, when you are ready, call me for your custom property search, simultaneously get a copy of  last month’s asset account statement or speak with your banker and get pre-approved.

Then we can block some time and go find the piece you’ve been praying for.

Can I get an amen? …Thank you!
