Mayo usually refer's their new hires to a Relocation Specialists in the area to assist you with your Real Estate needs. You are free to use any agent you wish and selecting an agent that you were not referred to has never been a problem. Mayo does not require that you use the recommended agent.
Most new hires are usually unsure and are feel compelled to use the agent that the Human resources staff memer or the new boss refers them to. Many of the Realtors referred are personal friends of the referring staff member and not formally endorsed by Mayo. I have been an agent on the receiving end of several Mayo referrals.
The current real estate market in Jacksonville & Ponte Vedra has not yet shown positive signs that the market is making a significant change. Experts believe that the Jacksonville market will stabalize sometime after the 2nd quarter of 2008 and that we will see the market rebound early 2009. You are in a perfect position to wait and monitor the local real estate market. You may decide after a short time to build a new home. Builders have offered some very lucrative incentives and discounts over the past few months.
If you were to interview and choose an agent to work with now, you could have that agent monitor the market and send you MLS data on typical homes in the area that are within your price range. Together you and your agent can monitor the monthly changes in the real estate market. You will become knowledgeable about the local market, types and style of homes and areas that are available to you, New home builders, and new home communities. After several months your agent may recommend that it would be in your best interest to purchase early or you may have received infomation on the perfect home or community. It will them be time to schedule a visit. Finding the perfect home will take only a few days if you have been doing homework for months.
Once the market begins to change it will take several months before any significant change will take place. You may find a home that appears too good to pass up and decide that you will make your offer prior to mid 2009. Working with an agent for several months or a year to become familiar with local real estate will certainly help you to make a more informed, efficient and lodgical decision when the time to purchase arrives.
If I can be of any assistance please feel free to contact me.
Best of luck to you and your family
Don't put yourself in that frame of mind. If you do you are assuming there is no chance of finding the right deal. I know better.....There is a home out there for you to buy right now that is in the right neighborhood, that meets your criteria, at the right price BUT......You need to find it!! Here's your assignment:
1. Qualify for a loan
2. Identify an agent
3. Find a home
Remember, regardless of the market, there are always great opportunities to be had....investors find them and you can too.
