Resources for Home Buyers for 2020

Buyer Tips and Advice graphic

As a busy Carlsbad Realtor, I work with both home buyers and sellers, and provide a variety of resources and services to them depending on the needs.

I wrote recently about one of these resources, my 2020 Winter Buyer Guide (I provide a guide every season), and you can request a copy here.

Here are some other home buyer resources for 2020 that you may find helpful.


I created a video series for buyers on my YouTube Channel at HOME BUYING TIPS AND ADVICE. You’ll find 23 short (1 – 2 1/2 minute) videos on key things you will want to know as a home buyer. While it’s not everything that’s important to know about home buying, you will gain a better idea of what you can expect and a number of key questions will be answered.


I have created 2 questionnaires to help you think about the issues that may be important to you in your new or next home, including questions about your lifestyle (e.g., proximity to shopping and services). The purpose is to help you narrow down the list of things that you need in a new home so you know what’s most important when searching for the right property. Answering these questionnaires will help you focus on finding the right community and the home that fits your personal needs, lifestyle and budget.

My FREE Buyer's Handbook

It’s easy to download both questionnaires on my website, or by clicking on these links – Buyers What’s Important to You and a Buyer’s Lifestyle Questionnaire.


When we work together to find the right home that fits your needs and budget, I’ll also give you a copy of my Buyer’s Handbook when we get started. I also have several useful checklists to share at key points in the transaction (e.g., opening escrow, 10 days to closing), to keep you on track so you don’t forget anything.

I will be there for you every step of the way, to guide you through the transaction, answer all of your questions, and help you find the best solutions to any problems that might arise so you can make the right decisions.


If you have any questions about the local housing market, the home buying process, life in Carlsbad and nearby (I service multiple North San Diego County communities), the pre-approval and loan process, or anything else, I invite you to reach out by calling or texting me at (760) 840-1360, or emailing me at JeffDowlerSolutions AT gmail dot com. In addition to answering all of your questions, we will talk about your personal needs, timing, lifestyle, and budget. Then we can create a strategy to get you into a new home in 2020!
