Did you know that it costs you nothing to have an agent help you purchase your next home? The seller pays both sides of the commission when they sell their home. And it’s important to have someone on YOUR side. When you’re driving around looking at properties, the names of the agents on the For Sale signs are agents representing the sellers. They want to get the highest sales price for their client while making as few concessions as possible. Doesn’t it make sense to have someone representing you? For me, it’s not just about finding a house you’ll like, it’s about getting to know you and finding a home that fits your lifestyle. Whether you want to live near work, the hospital, or a particular school, close to hiking and biking trails, or you’re looking for a neighborhood with its own pool and parks, I’ll help you find it.
As a buyer’s agent, my entire focus is on servicing you, the buyer, educating you on the market trends and market conditions and finding the right property for you. If you noticed a lot of YOU’s in there, it’s because it’s all about YOU!
As your agent, here are some of the things I will do for you:
Listen carefully to make sure I understand exactly what you want in your next home
Diligently search for homes that meet your criteria (YES, even FSBOs!)
Immediately send you info on homes that match your criteria, including new listings and price reductions
Preview homes in advance to rule out overpriced homes and homes that don’t meet your criteria
Set up showing appointments and plan touring routes
Provide you with a market analysis of recent sales to make sure the price is right for a particular neighborhood
Explain the home buying process thoroughly
Negotiate on your behalf
Communicate consistently so you know what’s going on
Provide referrals to reputable lenders so you’ll know exactly what you can afford
