Of Course, You Have Questions
If you’re thinking about these questions, then you’re right on track.
How much house can I afford?
Your first step is to meet with a lender who can give advice on loan programs and monthly payments. Once you are pre-approved, we will help identify the best possible home while taking into account condition, commute time and resale value.
Do I need to be pre-approved?
Absolutely! The pre-approval shows the seller that you’re a serious buyer and puts you in the best negotiating position.
What are the representation options?
In Wisconsin, Realtors represent the seller by default. A buyer agency agreement with your real estate agent ensures they are protecting your interests. Check out the resources section for more on this topic.
What is the market like right now?
The market is ever-changing. Sometimes it tips towards sellers and other times it favors buyers. It can even be different for homes just a few blocks away from each other. Our expertise will ensure you get the house at the right price.

Switch to Beach Drive

“As young, first time home buyers Katie Gnau made us feel so calm in our search. We definitely took our time in finding the perfect home and Katie was so patient with us. She worked diligently to schedule tours to fit our crazy schedules and kept us level headed and realistic with each house we saw. We had so much to learn about the process and Katie responded promptly to every single one of our questions.” – Cassidy S and Jacob B
