Why Does Space Simply Exist?

"After almost 10 years as a real estate agent in Central Iowa, I got to the point where I could not justify charging people so much money, whether the house is $150k, $450k, or $900k+, the professional photographs cost the same, the paperwork is the same, and arguably the process gets easier with higher priced homes, so I felt like the feel when representing the seller should be the same regardless of price. Many homeowners want to sell their homes, but do not know where to start or don't have the contacts or legal resources at their disposal to do so. Space Simply was started to help those homeowners while protecting as much of their hard earned equity as possible. Space Simply simplifies and reduces the cost of selling your home, while maintaining a professional level of service and communication throughout the process."

Have a meeting with Cy to talk through the current state of the market. Share what you are looking for, go through what the current options are, and have Cy set up a detailed search so you can stay on top of the market.We will then pinpoint homes within the geographic area of interest you provide that will best match all of your needs and specific criteria, as well as any wants and wish list items.

2. Financing

Before you get too far into the home buying process, you will need to secure financing. Our preferred lender will take care of you from start to finish. You will need to communicate what amount you are comfortable paying every month and we can back into the ideal home. Once you have decided on a budget, and been pre-approved, Space Simply will find properties that fit your budget and the needs of your family.

4. Make an Offer

Once we have found the home of your dreams, it is time to get to work! The next step is putting in the offer. At this point, Space Simply will begin to negotiate the best price for your home. There are so many more considerations than just asking price when it comes to purchasing a home; we make sure that all of those unique elements are factored into the offer. Price, close date, lending concessions, included items, contingencies, allowances, etc.

5. Close

The last (and most exciting) step to the home buying process is officially closing on your home. At this point, Space Simply, with your guidance, will have negotiated your offer and final closing price for the home of your dreams. All that's left is to sign on the dotted line and enjoy your new space!
