Buying a home is one of the biggest and most important decisions—let alone financial transactions!—you will make in your lifetime. Having an experienced professional by your side is the only way to ensure you are making the best decision possible.
Owning a home remains a steadfast part of the American dream. What’s more, home ownership is an investment in your future: Owning a home builds wealth over the long term, and it provides significant social benefits.
At Beverly-Hanks & Associates, our goal is to make sure that you are able to make confident decisions. After working with tens of thousands of buyers, we’ve learned that there are three concerns that all homebuyers have in common. We call them the BIG THREE:
The best way to help you answer these questions is to make sure our agents are among the best trained and most experienced in the industry. Our professional real estate agents are uniquely equipped with evaluation techniques and market analysis tools to help you research and confidently answer these questions. Let’s look at each of them:
How will I know that I’ve seen all the properties that meet my criteria?
At Beverly-Hanks, we understand that 43% of buyers find the home they purchased online. That’s why we make sure when it comes to your home search in WNC, we make easy the name of the game. Our website shows you the most comprehensive selection of MLS listings in the area. But we go further by giving you relevant community details and market information, including local schools, area videos, market research, and related properties.

What can I do to be sure that I do not overpay?
Interpreting trends to establish reasonable market value is one of the most important services your Beverly-Hanks associate can perform for you. By its very nature, all real estate is local, but national and regional trends also impact value.
Our process begins broadly and narrows its focus until it is specific to you. We start with the FHFA House Price Index (HPI) and the Beverly-Hanks Quarterly Market Report. We then narrow down your search by examining our Vital Signs videos and scattergram. Lastly, we perform a comparative market analysis for your neighborhood, in which we evaluate similar, recently sold homes near the home you want to buy. Preparing a CMA for your chosen property before submitting your offer is one of the most valuable services your agent will offer you.
How can I ensure that I won’t buy a property in poor condition?
When you are prepared for the home inspection, there will be a lot less stress should one or more issues crop up. This is why a professional real estate agent can prove so valuable. After viewing hundreds of homes, Beverly-Hanks REALTORS® are programmed to be on the lookout for common issues that are uncovered by qualified home inspectors.
Real estate agents also work tirelessly to grow their vendor networks and build relationships with reputable pros and firms who know how to conduct business correctly and efficiently.
Don’t Take Our Word for It
After every home we sell, the independent company RealSatisfied evaluates our performance. We then make their results public, allowing you to decide if our combination of results and customer care are right for you. While there’s always room for improvement, we’re pretty proud of our performance.
