Duncan Real Estate Buyer’s Guide

Your Key For Buying Anna Maria Island Real Estate And Surrounding Areas

The current economy and reduced real estate prices have created unique opportunities for buyers seeking a primary residence, second home, perhaps a vacation home, an investment property or a vacation rental property. In all these areas, Duncan Real Estate is experienced in guiding you through the process from first look to closing and every step in between.

There’s never been a better time to buy a home on Florida’s Gulf Coast where our white sand beaches are ranked among the finest in the country, if not the world. Excellent year round weather, memorable sunsets and a relaxed island lifestyle are part of our daily lives and are key reasons why Anna Maria Island and Gulf Coast real estate will always remain in demand. We invite you to enjoy them as much as we do.

Making correct decisions and buying the best property or home within your budget depends on hiring the right real estate company, a company that will advise you and be your partner throughout the process. At Duncan Real Estate, we’ve specialized in helping buyers of residential, commercial and rental/vacation property on Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key, and Manatee and Sarasota counties since 2001.

Darcie and her professional team at Duncan Real Estate (we refer to them as Team Duncan) understand the local real estate market and are positioned to assist you in every step in the buying process. We will earn your trust and make your buying experience seamless.

The Buying Process Begins With A Duncan Real Estate Associate

Finding the right property to meet your needs is our goal.

First, we conduct an in-depth interview to fully understand each buyer’s needs.

Next, we will be pleased to introduce you to local lenders who can assist you with all your mortgage needs. We’ll help you secure your financing before you begin looking at property so you’ll be a qualified buyer in a position to make an offer at will and, more importantly, so your realtor can negotiate thoroughly on your behalf.

Once we understand your needs and your financing is secured, we’ll select properties for your consideration on Anna Maria Island, its towns of Anna Maria, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach, Longboat Key and Sarasota and Manatee counties.

When your offer has been made and you’re at contract stage, your Duncan Real Estate associate will introduce you to independent home inspectors, closing agents or attorneys, and make sure that any issues are dealt with immediately and professionally to ensure you reach the closing table on your settlement date.

If you’re purchasing rental property and need assistance finding renters or even furnishings, Duncan Property Management and Duncan Vacation Rental Services can help. We’ll advise you on pricing and furnishing the property. We can also keep your property rented and supervise routine and regular maintenance to help you maintain your investment.

First-Time Home Buyers Are Always Welcome

Buying your first home can be overwhelming. To an inexperienced buyer, the time, effort, dealings with mortgage companies and lenders, and all of the other details involved in purchasing a home can be daunting. Duncan Real Estate’s associates are well-versed in working with first-time buyers. Our strong relationship with area lenders positions us to help provide creative solutions when it comes to financing and will guide you every step of the way.
