Ryan Finger is a top agent here at KW downtown. He was born and raised in Colorado Springs, went to college at UC Boulder, and he’s lived in Denver ever since. He has been in the real estate industry for close to five years now and loves his job because it’s allowed him to find great success. We decided to ask him a few questions in order to get his expert advice about the real estate market.
If I was a first-time homebuyer, how would you start the process with me?
“The first thing we do is create a game plan. You don’t know what you don’t know until you don’t know it. I like to work with my buyers to create a strategic game plan to find them the right house. Every transaction is different, so we want to go through as much information as possible in order to make sure we have the best plan possible. We also talk about the market and what that means. We have one of the hottest markets in the country here in Denver, but you might not realize how crazy it is until you actually get out there. That’s why we want you to be well-prepared.”
Finding a house can be challenging in this market. Tell me what steps you go through to help buyers get the house they want when negotiating.
“We’re going to find out as much information as possible before making an offer. We’ll talk to the listing agent, drill down as much info as possible, and figure out what we need to do to make the most appealing offer possible. When the buyer is more appealing, the seller is more comfortable. I’ve yet to have a buyer client who has made more than three offers to get a home under contract. It’s true that there’s not a lot available in this market for starter homes and that makes things more competitive. However, our strategy has remained successful.”
Tell us how you give back to the local community and how you exemplify our core values at the House Hunters Team.
“The last few years I have been the entertainment coordinator for the March of Dimes Denver. It’s a volunteer position that I enjoy. I’d encourage anybody who wants to volunteer to check out this link. I also do a lot of fundraising for the LLS Walk in Walsh Park in Denver. I love to fundraise because that’s certainly an issue that hits close to home for me. We have also partnered with a local church to help out a few elementary schools as well with toy and school supply drives.”
If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to give Ryan a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
