”Samira was my buyers realtor when I bought my historic farmhouse. I first walked the property with her and fell in love with the beauty of the setting. From the beginning of the process to the end, it was fraught with challenges, one after the other. With each challenge that arose, Samira was focused and dedicated to make this happen for me. She did more than was expected and at the end of a very long and bumpy process, we both breathed a huge sigh of relief at the closing table!

Buying and Selling With Confidence

Buying and selling a home is one of life’s most significant financial decisions. Here are some of Samira’s home buying tips:

1) If you’re moving to an area that you have not lived in previously, try before you buy. Staying in a local Airbnb can allow you to experience neighborhood characteristics that you would not otherwise have known about. 

2) If you’re selling, make sure to stage your home. From adding a fresh coat of paint, to de cluttering personal belongings, staging your home puts more money into your pocket. Always make sure that closets are a maximum of 2/3 full- anything more may make viewers feel that the home has insufficient storage space.

3) Always make sure that your real estate agent knows what you are searching for in a home; she may be able to guide you towards lending products that are a better fit for your needs. Did you know that there are loans available that will finance the cost of your desired improvements into the loan itself, thereby saving you from the hassle of coming up with additional out of pocket cash?

Having previously obtained her license as a Mortgage License Originator (FL) Samira is familiar with an array of financial lending products. Her experience as a builder lends additional and invaluable knowledge to those evaluating historic homes.
