Buying a home is an extremely important purchase, arguably the MOST important purchase you will ever make. Why? Because a home is where you go to relax, to rest, to be you. It’s a place where you will entertain friends, family, neighbors. It’s a place you will gather with loved ones and where you may raise your children. It has to be special, it has to feel right, it has to be comfortable and a delight to your senses. After all, you’re probably going to be spending a lot of time there. So, this is one decision you want to get right.
An important key to getting it right is finding a good buyer agent. Because, let’s be honest, buying a home, especially if you’re a first-time home buyer, can be an overwhelming process. There are so many things to consider, not least of which is actually finding that perfect place and then making a smart offer. Add to that the necessity of negotiating terms, haggling over the price, and asking for extra considerations, and you’ve got a lot of tricky back-and-forth on your hands.
That’s why using a buyer agent is such a smart move. Know that when buying a home you will be working with the seller’s agent and you will want someone in your corner who will advocate for you. As your buyer agent it’s my job and my pleasure to put your interests first and to ensure that you find a home you love at a price you love.
Part of the service I provide you is a detailed (and confidential) conversation about your finances and needs. This is a great benefit to you, for if you were to disclose this information to a listing agent they would be able to use that information against you. For example, if the sellers know how much you love the house or how much you make, they can use this info to their advantage. Using a buyer agent means you will be able to get a much better deal.
So if you’re ready to buy a home, call me today and let’s get to work!
