I LOVE Real Estate! The best part of my day is helping my clients reach their personal goals regarding the purchase or sale of real estate. I have a strong customer service background which enables me to understand my diverse clients and help them with their specific needs. I worked in Title and Escrow for 4 years, which has given me a great background and understanding of real estate settlement. This is critical, because it helps me to identify issues during a transacation that can be proactively resolved leading to a smooth closing! I am also a licensed general contractor, this helps me help my clients when looking at homes because I am able to project cost and timelines for certain projects. I am a Family Man, so I know how important everyone’s time is especially regarding the largest transaction of a person’s life. I am organized, creative, and have great integrity! I would be honored to help you with your next transaction

Don’t Sell on Your Own Just Because It’s a Sellers’ Market

In a sellers’ market, some homeowners might be tempted to try to sell their house on their own (known as For Sale By Owner, or FSBO) instead of working with a trusted real estate professional. When the inventory of homes for sale is as low as it is today, buyers are eager to snatch up virtually any house that comes to market. Let’s unpack why that’s a big mistake and may actually cost you more in the long run.

What Credit Score Do You Need for a Mortgage?

According to data from the most recent Origination Insight Report by Ellie Mae, the average FICO® score on closed loans reached 753 in February.

What’s the Difference Between an Appraisal and a Home Inspection?

If you are planning to buy a home, an appraisal is an important step in the process. It’s a professional evaluation of the market value of the home you’d like to buy. In most cases, an appraisal is ordered by the lender to confirm or verify the value of the home prior to lending a buyer money for the purchase. It is also a different step in the process from a home inspection, which assesses the condition of the home before you finalize the transaction. Here is the breakdown of each one and why they’re both important when buying a home.

Testimonials

Mike is a man of action! He contacted us, paid a visit the next day, and got right to work, assisting us with getting our home ready to sell. He took care of the inspections, made recommendations, and was very patient while we moved out. He counseled us on proper pricing, and had 7 offers the first weekend! He worked with us through closing, keeping us informed and did his best to move the closing along when it got bogged down in “verification of funds”. Mike Martin is a man of action, I highly recommend him.
