Buy a Home

When you are looking for a home, most people find that it is a good idea to find a REALTOR(tm) who can help them sort through the large number of houses on the market to find the home that best fits their needs. You are also best served by having a professional working with you who can assist you in the negotiations, make sure that you are getting a fair deal and ensure that your interests are being looked after when it comes time to make an offer and negotiate a purchase, and who will work side by side with you through the closing of your escrow.

The listing agent is working on behalf of the Seller, you need someone working on your behalf as well.  In fact, this service is usually free for a homebuyer since the agent who is working on your behalf will be paid by splitting the commission that the Seller has already agreed to pay to the listing agent.

What factors should you consider when choosing an agent to work with you to find a home?

Professionalism:  Is your agent a full-time, professional REALTOR(tm), someone who will represent you in the way you would want to be represented?

Market Knowledge:  Does your agent understand the market for the type of property you want to buy? Do they know the areas you are interested in?  Do they keep current on developments in the real estate industry and local, regional and national trends? Are they a true resource for you in your search?

Experience:  Does your agent have the depth and breadth of experience you need to assist you in your real estate transaction?  Do they understand all of the problems and pitfalls that can get in the way of a smooth transaction, and are they able to overcome them?

Tools:  Does your agent have access to the tools necessary to give you a complete picture of the market and make sure you are making the best decision for you?

Personality:  Do you enjoy spending time and working with your agent? You will be spending a lot of time together, it makes sense to be sure that you are going to enjoy the homebuying experience.
