You Don’t Have to Pay Me!

Did you know that when you work with a buyer’s agent you don’t pay them a penny? That’s right. You didn’t read that wrong. You see, in the land of real estate, all commissions are paid by the seller. In no other path in life do you get a fully trained professional to assist you free of charge, or at least free to you.

You will find that in no other endeavor in life, certainly not one as important as this, will you have someone else footing the bill. So make sure you choose an agent that will work diligently for you. You need an agent that will go over all the documents for the transaction with you and explain them. The best agent for you will be easily accessible, be knowledgeable regarding the steps you must take to complete the purchase, be someone you are comfortable spending time with, and always guide you in what the best course of action is. When you work with a professional buyers agent buying your new home can be a true pleasure.

Choosing the Right Buyers Agent

You got your loan pre-approved and you’ve been window shopping for weeks before you had it. The houses that interest you the most are still on the market, and all the agents you called to get the information from have all been sending you emails about the homes on the market in your price range.

No one has told you anything about choosing an agent or how to deal with the 20 agents that call and email you daily. What next? Now you have to decide which agent will be the best for you. Here are some things to consider when choosing your agent.

Do you feel comfortable with this agent? You have to be comfortable when working with someone as you will be discussing your finances to a certain extent and will be resistant to that if you are not comfortable.

  • Has this agent been sending you properties that you feel will truly fit what you are looking for, or do you feel they are always targeting a higher price range than you specified?
  • Is it easy to reach this agent? You need to be able to get in contact with your agent. Good communication is urgent for a smooth closing when you decide on a home to purchase.
  • Do you feel the agent is knowledgeable in the area you are going to buy a home in?
  • Is this someone you like or just someone that was recommended? The right agent for your parents or best friend may be great for them, but not so much for you.

Choosing the right agent now will save you many headaches and heart breaks when looking for your new home. When you choose the right agent for you, you have already put yourself one step closer to finding the home of your dreams.
