The Buying Process

You might be asking yourself how you find the Realtor that will do the best job for you and will take you thru the home buying process with ease.

A few points to consider as you begin this process of discovery.

1
You want to see a house when
you want to see it.

Your time is valuable and you have schedules and responsibilities that need to be keep to an orderly timeline. Believe it or not, Realtors get busy.  If a realtor cannot show you a home on your time line because of previous engagements, they will reschedule for a later time. Working with the Jack McCarthy team, this will not happen as we provide you with 3 of the top Realtors in Northeast Florida, one of whom is always available to show you properties. What this means to you, is that you will never lose out by putting in an offer a day too late! Our business, like our inventory is always dynamically changing and today’s listing could be tomorrow’s sale.

2
You need a Realtor with market knowledge.

As you begin to ask questions about schools, cost to build on the waterfront, neighborhoods or commuting time you will know whether you have an agent with market knowledge. The Jack McCarthy team has sold homes in every neighborhood in Ponte Vedra Beach and its surrounding area. Our knowledge base and certifications keep us involved with the current market inventory in new home communities, resales, short sales, foreclosures and for sale by owners.

3
You need a Realtor who can negotiate strongly on your behalf.

A key aspect of real estate transactions is the ability to negotiate well. To do so, a background in sales can assist a Realtor in negotiating successfully the purchase and the price on your behalf.

Jack McCarthy has a background in sales and has been representing buyers for the past twenty years. He has 17 yrs. of teaching sales and marketing with 7yrs. spent as a sales training director for the Central United States with GTE.

When you hire the Jack McCarthy team, we become your advocate. Our job is to get you what you want. In doing so, we will always tell you the truth. You will be provided the information you as a buyer will need to make an informed decision.

Buying A home

When you are buying a new home you have 101 things on your mind and every detail is important. Having moved from New Jersey to Florida, to Texas and then again back to Florida, we understand the myriad emotions the experience of moving can bring about.

In 1995, we began searching and visiting Florida’s Northeast Coast. As with most people we were on a mission to find the very best place to enjoy living and raising a family. Like most, we too, began with a list:

1
For us, topping as #1 was schools. We wanted the best academic possibilities for our children.
2
We wanted a community where we could all make new friends. A child friendly community with bicycle trails, children’s activities, swimming pools and playfields.
3
We wanted an area with a low crime rate.
4
Recreational opportunities were also a big one for our family. We are a diverse group who enjoy playing tennis, golf, activities at the YMCA and walking the beach looking for shark’s teeth.
5
Access to cultural opportunities as well as close proximity to hospitals and airports made the list.

Everyone has their own unique requirements for their lifestyle and we are here to assist. We can answer your questions quickly, thoroughly and professionally. By doing so, we aid in eliminating as much stress off your shoulders as possible, so that you and your family can move thru this transition as quickly and efficiently as possible while accomplishing your overall goal, a new beginning.

Our son, Matthew McCarthy attended elementary, middle and high school in Ponte Vedra Beach.  A graduate from the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, he has been a licensed Realtor since he was twenty and is now a Broker Associate. Having played golf since he was eight and having played it competitively as a junior, he certainly knows his way around the local golf courses. Therefore, if you are considering a home in or around one of our many first rate golf communities, you need to talk with Matthew. He can describe each course and hole down to its minute details and can match you up with the course and home that best suits your lifestyle and game.

Our family will treat you like family! We will negotiate fully on your behalf, keep you continually updated and become your advisors throughout and after the process of purchasing your home. Once in your home we will be delighted to introduce you to your neighbors via a “Welcome to the Neighborhood Party” for you, optional of course!
