As you consider your real estate purchase, whether it is in Anchorage, Girdwood, Eagle River, or the Mat-Su Valley, we know you might have questions about the process. Here are a few common questions that our home buyers have, along with our answers. If your questions aren't answered here, don't hesitate to contact us. No question is too trivial.
Q. Where do we start looking for homes in the area?
You can start your search right here on this website, or of course, with a call to The Barrett Real Estate Group.
We are friendly, experienced, and in-touch with the current real estate market in all areas of the Anchorage, the Mat-Su valley, and other surrounding areas. We’ll ask about your plans, interests and price range. We’ll want to know if you prefer a neighborhood setting or acreage, a new/newer home or an older home, and other general information. Then we’ll arrange to meet you at our office, you home, or other convenient location. If you're out of state, we'll be happy to get on a conference call or Skype and begin working with you via using today's amazing technologies.
Q. How long does buying a home take?
We listen closely to you so we should be able to show you all the homes that fit your interests in a just a few days. But if finding the perfect property takes days and miles, that’s not a problem. The area is beautiful and we are delighted to show off our community. From the time you make an offer, it can take as little as 30-45 days! (Read closing info below)
Q. How do we get the best price?
We can help you plan and negotiate your offer. We know real estate values better than most agents, because we are involved in so many current sales.
Q. When can we close?
Most contracts close within about 30 days after execution. It’s possible to close as quickly as in a week or as long as 60 days (or even longer) if the seller agrees.
