A Guide to Buying Real Estate with The Caton Team

We’ve honed our craft and developed some best practices during quarantine.

The Bay Area Real Estate Market is one of the strongest and most competitive markets in America. Only the MOST prepared buyers are successful. The market can move fast. Being prepared is key. 

Steps on How to Buy During Shelter in Place while Following Social Distancing:

  1. In order to gain access to show a home, our buyers must be at minimum Pre-Approved for their home loan(a pre-qualification is not sufficient). Be prepared to provide Proof of Funds for each offer we write (gather your bank statements). All funds for the purchase must be in your name.
  • However – to be the winning offer The Caton Team requests our client’s loan be beyond approved but Underwritten. This is a fully completed approval process with a lender COMMITMENT LETTER. This is BEST and it allows you to write the strongest offer and know their loan is secure*. As a Buyer, you will be in a multiple-offer situation with almost every home on the market – the strength of your Loan is key to success. Sellers will tally your proof of funds and speak to your lender directly. 

2) Reading disclosures, viewing homes, and preparing your offer – we’ll share out the secret to success when we speak…

Some Best Practices are: 

  • Be prepared to act quickly. Making time during the week will ensure your success. We’ve successfully represented several buyers and sellers during our 40+ year combined career. Each client is unique and so is our Real Estate game plan.
