Buying a House


 If you have questions about affordability, credit, legal matters, or income, trust us to find you what you need fast. We make sure you feel confident and educated every step of the way.   

As part of the Sycamore Group buyer’s packaging, meeting in person or virtually with buyers two to three months before they are ready to jump into finding a home is highly recommended by Jodie Jo. This allows for the much-needed time to educate her new clients and acquaint them with the process of purchase.


It is also a vital time to get to know one another as anyone can retain the details of the ideal features a home buyer desires in their new home; however, Jodie Jo goes further to understand her client’s lifestyle needs. This is especially important to her out-of-town buyers and investors. The next steps move to speaking with a trusted lender or financial advisor to discover purchasing power. Being in the real estate business for the many years as Jodie Jo has, she has established solid relationships with many lenders she can recommend, if a buyer needs.


Once the pre-approval or proof of funds is retained, the house or property hunt commences! Jodie Jo accommodates home tours based on the properties identified by her buyers. Upon locating a property her buyers want to go after, Jodie Jo begins her due diligence on property value to craft the best possible winning offer. Guiding buyers through the negotiations of acquiring a home and then through the inspections processes. Her many connections with contractors come in handy during this period on the chance of possible repair items coming up.


Working with the buyers and sellers to come up with best-case solutions and move into closing. In the final days of the purchasing process, Jodie Jo prepares her buyers for the transferring of keys. Celebrating on the day of conveying keys is not the conclusion of Jodie Jo’s presence as her buyer’s realtor. She is your realtor of choice, welcoming all real estate related questions that come up down the road.
