We ask you questions and give you answers to help you understand the process from start to closing.

The home buying process may seem complicated and overwhelming, but your Mendoza Realty agent will be at your side each step of the way!

Buying a home in today’s market is more difficult than ever before, especially for first-time buyers whom may lack the experience of the full list of questions and concerns involved in home purchasing and home ownership. There are so many choices. There are hundreds of websites with homes for sale that can make things very confusing. Some websites are great and others provide information which can be inaccurate or misleading. There are many property categories such as Short Sales, Foreclosures or REO’s or Bank Owned Properties, New Construction, Pre-Owned, For Sale By Owner (FSBO), Auctions, Single Family, Multi Family, Duplex, Townhomes, Condos, and, Co-ops. In addition to the financing and construction questions, there are things to consider like seller representations, home inspections, the condition of the sewer or plumbing, the quality and accessibility of local schools, zoning restrictions that might have an impact on remodeling or adding on, neighborhood issues and organizations, the accessibility of public transportation, and much more. Mendoza Realty will research the subject property to gather data and comps (CMA-Comparative Market Analysis) to help you make an educated decision on a negotiating strategy, initial offer price, and where to draw the line. We will provide an answer to any real estate question you have. We are specifically trained and dedicated to making the buyer’s experience fulfilling and successful, and are especially attuned to the needs of first-time buyers. Our goal is to help you achieve the best deal that most completely meets all of your needs-from floor-plan to price range.
