Will you be seeking for your dream home any time soon or in the near future? I am sure you will ask yourself, “Should I get a buyers agent to help me?” As a smart homebuyer, your answer should always be YES!
Navigating a Real Estate purchase can be tricky and yes, the web has opened more opportunity for you to do much of the work, but there is no substitute for an experienced professional. If you are thinking of not hiring an agent buyer because you want to save money or don’t want to deal with an agent, ask yourself these questions.
Do you know everything you need to know to get the home you want, including getting a good price on it?
Do you know the paper work so that plans can go your way?
Are you up to date with the current real estate information and the current market?
Do you understand the procedures to follow?
Do you know how much the home is really worth?
See, the realtor has already learned all of this through education and experience, which will help you save a lot of time, money and heartache.
Most Buyer Agents can see a price on a home right when they set foot in the home. They can also help you understand how well a neighborhood holds its value through comparables. Although anyone has the ability to pull up information on sales of comparable houses, agents have the experience to keep you away from paying too much for a house and get you the best deal for your money.
Another benefit with working with an agent is their help with understanding how much you can afford for a new home and providing insights into neighborhood specific information and trends. One of the most important parts in using a buyer agent is during the closing of a home. This is one of the more complicated parts of a transaction because Real Estate contracts are intricately involved documents that require an understanding of not only the contract process but Real Estate law as well. In summary, agents can be invaluable in helping you understand all of the added costs of owning a home, such as: taxes, insurance, maintenance and will help you make the best and biggest financial decision in your time.
