Portola Hills Home Buyers Love our Property Search App

I meet so many people when I am holding open a home that come in from just driving around looking for signs of what homes are available. They may have seen online that a home was scheduled to be open but generally print out the details and walk in with a stack of paper and kinda lost at what home they are looking for or they have no information on the home they popped into. We understand that you as a home buyer want to do some research on your own and I encourage my clients to make sure if they are interested in a specific neighborhood to drive it...  I then send them a link for our custom property search mobile app.   Take a look... at our how to video on how to use the Property Search App. If you are interested in the App, reach out to us and we will send you the link directly.  As well, we will send you a our H ome Buyer eGuide.  It  is filled with useful information to help with maneuver through the home buying process.
