As a Buyer’s Agent it is my job to know what your goals are in buying a home. What are the most important wants in your “new” home, what price range do you need to stay within and it is my job to listen and guide you through the process of buying a home.
With all the options a home can have – it is easy to get lost in the whirlwind and go completely over the top and spend too much. It is like a kid in the candy store and the want-want-want-want starts; it happens, know it happens. I believe it is my job to be that voice of reason and remind you of the goals you set.
Are you a Veteran?
Many times the goals revolve around a monthly payment, this is important. You need to be happy with your home but I believe everyone has a means and should buy a home in a comfortable range. I can help keep you on track.
Buying a home – Plan Ahead – Know what to Expect
Buying a home can be complicated and stressful – but it doesn’t have to be. A little planning ahead and knowing what to expect can ease your mind.
* You want to be pre-qualified prior to looking. * Be represented, a Buyer’s Agent has fiduciary duties only to you.
* Get to know the purchase contract prior to writing an offer; when the time comes to put an offer in you will feel more comfortable. * Learn about Residential Service contracts and what they do and do not cover – ask for one when buying a home.
* Read and reread the Seller’s Disclosure before placing an offer. * Know what the homes in the area have sold for and are selling for – review a comparative market analysis and make an informed offer. * Hire a licensed home inspector so you know what you are buying; do not skip this step. Go to the inspection, ask questions and learn about your potential home.
Buying from a Builder
Many times buyers think “I don’t need help if I buy a new home, the sales person will help me.” The sales person onsite IS there to “help” you but it is my job to represent you and work for you. There is a difference.
The salesperson onsite works for… the builder. The salesperson onsite has to answer to… the builder. I work for you.
When the price of the house is determined, the commission the builder (seller) pays to the REALTOR is figured into the bottom line. Why not let me represent you?
I will assist you through the new home buying process from the beginning to end. I will be there to show you the model and available lots. I will be there when it is time to go to the decorating center and pick colors. I will be there during the loan process. I will be there when it is time to close. Why? I work for you.
As your REALTOR® I will walk you through the process of buying a home – I am here to help you.
