Chase has debuted its Chase Home Center, a concierge homebuying resource, at the Scottsdale Hilton Village (on Scottsdale Road just south of Lincoln). “The Home Center is a new concept that connects local area home buyers with expert advice and state-of-the-art technology,” says Lawrence Bailey, head of retail sales for Chase Home Lending. “We know our customers, especially first-time homebuyers, need in-person advice, in a comfortable environment, from a trusted source. An educated buyer is an empowered buyer.” However, use of the facility is not restricted to Chase customers but is open to the general community. The Home Center is also an ideal location for realtors to host clients and take advantage of the facility’s resources.
The Home Center, located inside the existing Chase branch at 6155 N. Scottsdale Road, provides highly accurate, advanced and complete home search tools — even 3-D and virtual reality home tours — under one roof to create a convenient experience for the homebuyer, plus a team dedicated to helping them discover and close on their ideal home. Along with a comfortable lounge and meeting areas with monitors, Chase Home Center offers free Wi-Fi, a coffee bar and well-furnished kids play area.
The Home Center’s concierge services are available for extended hours to answer all questions — like how to choose a neighborhood, how to choose a home and how to start the mortgage process — drilled down to hyperlocal neighborhood information. There is even access to an underwriting department for a quick answer to questions of qualifying.
