What can a Real Estate Professional do for you?

  • Help you determine how much home you can actually afford.

A realtor can assist you in finding different sources to accrue the down payment and explain alternative financing methods. They will also introduce you to a mortgage counselor and arrange to have you “pre-approved” to improve your negotiating position and enable you to achieve your home faster and with less stress.

  • Providing client level services, your real estate agent will work for you as a buyer’s agent and help negotiate the best price and terms for you.  They may also serve as a disclosed dual agent acting as a liason between you and the seller to present offers and counter offers until an agreement is reached.
  • Assist to work out a realistic idea of the home best suited to your needs.
  • Provide access to all available homes in the multiple listing services (MLS).
  • Will suggest simple, imaginative changes that changes that could make a home more suitable for you and improve its utility and value.
  • Supply you with current real estate values, taxes, utility costs, municipal services and facilities, and may be aware of proposed zoning changes that could affect your purchase.
  • Familiarize you with the closing process and will obtain closing figures in advance of closing for your review.
  • Can provide you with a list of qualified home inspectors, pest inspectors, surveyors, and coordinate inspection appointments.

What is a Buyer’s Agent:

A buyer’s agent or buyer agency is the practice of real estate brokers and their agents representing a buyer in a real estate transaction rather than, by default, representing the seller either directly or as a sub-agent.

It’s important that you choose an experienced agent who is there for you. Your agent should be actively finding you potential homes, keeping you informed of the entire process, negotiating furiously on your behalf, and answering all of your questions with competence and speed.

He or she is also focused on getting you the lowest asking price and best terms.

Also, when you use a buyer’s agent, you will see more properties! As they will be accessing the MLS system and also actively finding homes that are listed as FSBO, or homes that sellers are thinking about listing to meet your needs.
