Is a New Build or Resale home a better value?

Saddlebrooke Ranch resale homes often represent a better value than buying new. Let us show you some of the beautiful resale homes in Saddlebrooke Ranch.

Why do I need a Home Inspector for a Brand New Home?

Robson builds a quality home, but Buyers who "Trust but Verify" end up with the best built houses. There are two stages of development that a new home should be inspected. The first is at the framing stage. This inspection will catch construction issues that prevent problems that may take years to develop like leaking Roofs and windows. The second inspection is at the final walk through. The home inspector will do a thorough inspection to catch issues with the finish work. Tell Robson upfront that you plan on having a home inspection at these two phases of construction. We can recommend excellent licensed home inspectors that you can rely on.

Saddlebrooke Ranch or Saddlebrooke?

We will show all your options for buying a Brand New Home or a Resale home in both Saddlebrooke Ranch and Saddlebrooke so you can choose the best home for the value.

What New Home Upgrades increase future resale values?

Buyers often go crazy in the design center selecting every available upgrade imaginable and running up the cost of their new home. A few of these Buyers come to us a few years later to sell their home and are astounded that not every upgrade added to their home's current market value. Sometimes life changes so it never hurts to have an eye on future resale values.

Most Saddlebrooke Ranch home buyers start their home search well in advance to their home buying trip. Make sure you are prepared by...

Saddlebrooke Ranch Home Pricing Expertise.
Don't Overpay for Your New Home.

Saddlebrooke Ranch home prices vary tremendously based on several factors. The four most important features that impact Saddlebrooke Ranch home values are:

Catalina Mountain Views.

Saddlebrooke Ranch homes with unobstructed Catalina Mountain Views garner a huge pricing premium. Many Saddlebrooke Ranch home buyers will not consider buying a home without mountain views.

Privacy.

In Saddlebrooke Ranch, homes that back to open space or the golf course have an added sense of privacy and sell for a premium.

Upgrades & Remodeling.

Is the home Builder Basic or Loaded with Upgrades. How much Value has the Owners Remodeling Projects added to the home?

Outdoor Living Space.

People move to Saddlebrooke Ranch to enjoy our amazing weather and they spend a lot of time outside. Outdoor living space is as important as the home’s interior. Extended Patios, Outdoor Fireplaces, Ramadas & Professional Landscaping add tremendous value to a Saddlebrooke Ranch home.

Before you make an offer on a Saddlebrooke Ranch home, we prepare a comprehensive home sales analysis for you using the criteria above so you are fully educated on Saddlebrooke Ranch home values. As an educated buyer, you can feel comfortable with your new purchase.

Unemotional Negotiations

Buying a new home is an emotional decision which can leave a new home buyer feeling vulnerable during negotiations. We will expertly guide you through the negotiations as your trusted advocate, a skill that only comes with our level of expertise.

Resale Home Inspections & Repair Requests

Certified Home Inspector.

A comprehensive inspection of the home and its mechanical systems.

Licensed Termite & Pest Professional.

Be sure your home is free of termites & pack rats.

Licensed Roofer.

Roof leaks are a major contributor to unseen home damage and mold issues. Be sure the roof on your new home is in sound condition.

Often, the touchiest part of the home purchase process is negotiating the repair request after all the home inspections are complete. The inspection of the home will reveal at least a few issues that are not obvious to the Buyer, even on a well maintained home. The inspection reports can be dozens of pages long and some problems are important and others aren't. We will sit down with you and go through the report item by item to determine which items are important to you and represent your best interests during this process.

Sellers

Every Saddlebrooke Ranch Home Seller Dreams of Selling Their Home:

  • For the Most Money
  • In the Shortest Amount of Time
  • With the Least Amount of Hassle

4 Reasons Saddlebrooke Ranch Home Sellers Choose Laura & Tim Sayers:

  1. Photography
  2. Preparation
  3. Promotion
  4. Pricing

Photography.
The Difference Between Pictures & Photography.

Professional Photography is one of the most important factors in realizing the Seller’s dream. Home Buyers scour the web hunting for the home of their dreams. They use the photos of your home to determine which homes they schedule to see with their real estate agent and which homes do not make the cut. If the pictures of your home are not professional, you will not get a second chance to entice Buyers into viewing your home.

Any agent can snap pictures of your home using their iPhone. Photography takes a combination of equipment and skill that includes:

  • A Professional Digital SLR Camera
  • Ultra Wide Angle Lenses for Shooting Interior Spaces
  • Knowledge of Lighting Techniques
  • Knowledge How to Properly Frame a Shot
  • Professional Photo Editing Software & Skills
  • Optimizing Photos for Web & Print Media

Preparation.
The Key To Getting The Highest Possible Price.

The purpose of preparation is to make sure the Buyer feels comfortable in your home. Remember, Buyers come to find their new home, not visit yours. Simple things can make a big impact on Buyers including:

  • Declutter. Too Many Items Distract from the Home and Can Make It Feel Small or Cramped.
  • Depersonalize. Put Family Pictures Away so Buyers Can Envision Themselves Living in the Home.
  • Clean, Clean, Clean. Make Everything Sparkle.
  • Routine Maintence. Replace Burnt out Light Bulbs, Tighten Door Handles, Have Rugs Professional Cleaned, Etc.
  • Paint. If You Paint Is Looking Tired, Nothing Helps like a New Coat of Paint.
  • Landscaping. With Our Outdoor Lifestyle, Make Sure the Landscaping Is Fresh.

Overwhelmed? Don’t be, we have a trusted team of contractors that can do it all for you including personal organizers, maid services, painters, plumbers, electricians, HVAC, carpet cleaners and much more. Many of our clients are selling second homes from out-of-state or have inherited a Saddlebrooke Ranch home and don’t have the time or the resources to do the work themselves. We have you covered.
