Relocating? Let me be your guide

When moving to a new town, you can have a lot on your mind: a different job, different schools, a different church, different daily routines, and of course, finding a new place for your family to call "home". At Goodwin & Thyne Properties, I understand this, and I am an expert in relocation. I have a long history of finding buyers the right home by following a refined process designed to speed up your search.

When most buyers go into home search mode - they may wind up with 50+ listings to see. Naturally, that's too many properties to see first hand if you're on a short visit from out of town! I can help you to narrow your search down to 20-25 houses, with these things in mind:

  • Before leaving town, arrange your needs into one list. Then put the things you simply want in another. When a home doesn't even meet your needs, there's no need to even spend time looking at it.
  • Know your budget. If you are going to get a home loan, secure your pre-approved amount prior to seeing listings so we can eliminate homes which exceed your budget.
  • What length of a commute are you ready to make each day to work and other interests? Traffic in the Santa Barbara area could be different than your current location, so tell me your desired drive-time, and I'll locate homes based on my knowledge of drive times in the area.

Before we meet in person, I could send you my picks for listings we should see. Or you may already have some favorite listings culled from your own research. While virtual tours and photos are helpful, there's nothing like walking through homes in person. Let me set up any necessary appointments and map a route. By planning ahead, we could visit 8 or 10 homes in a single day.
