Oro Valley Real Estate - Submitting an Offer

Once we’ve found the right property, the next step is to make an offer to the seller. Here are a few things to consider and some ways I can help.

I will gather all the information available to help you make a good decision on price, including:

Comparative properties that have recently closed in the area

Current market conditions for the area

Current lending conditions

Automated Home Value estimates

I will help you with the things you might not think much about, like:

Items of personal property you want included

Warranty, inspections, repairs or other home enhancements by the seller

Closing date and possession

I will present your offer:

The seller will have three choices: accept your offer as it is presented; reject it completely or propose adjustments to your offer (make counteroffer)

Between your good decision making, and my knowledge of the process, putting the right home into escrow will be a sure-thing.


Oro Valley Real Estate - Escrow v Title

What does Escrow do?
Escrow is your main point of contact-they are the hub of the transaction bringing together agents, sellers, buyers, lenders, title and all the vendors
When your clients place the escrow company in the contract, you will open escrow by submitting your contract and earnest money to the escrow office named, and they will then open the order with Title
The Escrow Officer has the responsibility to remain as neutral as possible in a real estate transaction
Escrow should keep you informed as to what is happening in your transaction
Escrow handles payoffs of liens, taxes and insurance, prepare some documents, obtain signatures, coordinate services, disburse funds, prepare escrow instructions (when needed) and provide technical assistance
What does Title do?
Title is responsible for researching the public record, finding out what affects the properties, and in many ways maintaining the public records
Title issues a Title Commitment to buyers and lenders setting forth what needs to be taken care (Requirements) and what matters will remain against the title (Exceptions).
Buyers have 5 days to review and disapprove of any matters.
Title works with escrow and assist with any title matters on the Commitment needing to be addressed
Upon completion of the transaction (Recording) we issue a Title Policy to the buyer or lender


Oro Valley Real Estate - The Value of An Open House

Holding an open house can be a great way to bring attention to your property. Almost half of all buyers use open houses as an information source in their home search. 
We make Open Houses an event. Between our exposure on social media, numerous websites, and print advertising in the newspaper, our open houses are second to none, and are designed to attract big attention to your listing. I have access to a wide variety of advertising programs to promote your open house and the most recognizable open house signs around!
You will have a wide variety of people stopping by to learn more about your property, including your neighbors (remember, they may have friends and family who are in the market to buy a home too!) Here are some tips to a successful open house:
Have the house neat and tidy - free of clutter.
Have ample parking available for visitors. 
Turn on the lights and open the window coverings.
Refreshments are always a nice touch - especially in the heat of summer! 
Keep your home at a comfortable temperature.
Price your property right for your neighborhood and the market. 
Plan a good time to get maximum traffic.
I will utilize this network by sharing information on your home and open house for agents with buyers looking for just the right place to call home.
Open Houses are a Valuable Marketing Tool.


Oro Valley Real Estate - Pre-Approved v Pre-Qualified

A pre-approval letter from your lender can be an effective tool to help increase your negotiating power.
Real estate agents, builders and property sellers tend to take pre-approved buyers more seriously. You are able to negotiate with more confidence and in competitive offer situations, a true pre-approval may be the deciding factor to landing your dream home.
A full mortgage application has been completed with a Mortgage Loan Officer.
There has been a through review and analysis of client's credit report.
In most cases, clients have provided income and asset documentation to the Mortgage Loan Officer for evaluation.
A maximum loan amount can be defined and mortgage products can be identified to align with a client's financial goals.
In general, a full mortgage application has not been completed.
A credit report may or may not have been reviewed.
All information about income and assets is provided verbally.
The maximum loan amount defined is an estimate and it may be difficult to determine without thorough document review.
Please note A Pre-approval is not a commitment to lend. Changes in credit or financial status during the process could affect qualifying. Your Mortgage Loan Officer will guide you.

Client Reviews

Great job


Ian did a great job. On top of everything. Pleasing experience. Took away the stress.

John G

Ian sold a house for us back in 2000 in 18 days. This past January he did it again and believe it or not, again he did in 18 days. As the saying goes, we couldn’t have done better if we tried. But of course we tried very hard to make sure all went well and Ian performed an excellent five star ***** job to sell our house. Timing of sale was perfect for allowing us to move into the new house. His expertise and concerted approach was key to making the sale go through.

Robert C

Our experience with Ian Taylor was superb! He understands that he is a real estate agent and not a bank clerk as many people now treat this special but difficult job. He is very involved and helped us to keep on top of every situation. He shared all the responsibilities with us from the day we asked him to represent us till after closing. He worked hard to make sure that we (the sellers) and the buyers (with their agent) were treated fairly and respectfully. Because of his immediate and constant attention to the selling of our home, we got a buyer immediately, and through his diligence, all went smoothly. We can recommend only one other agent in our 2 decades of buying and selling houses and Ian is one of them. Thank you, Ian.

We have worked with Ian before. He is a top notch realtor. Honest, straightforward. Integrity. The Title company, on our last house sale made a mistake of $1400.. Ian took it out of his proceeds to make it right for us. I have never dealt with a better realtor.

Ian was a very patient realtor who worked with us for two years in our attempts to find a good winter home. We appreciate that he offered frank opinions of properties and took us to see primarily homes he thought we would like. We appreciate all the time he spent with us.

We purchased our townhome with the help of Ian Taylor. It was a very successful transaction with minimal stress. We would use Ian's services again and have recommended him to others.
