We live in the age of technology; smart phones are constantly at our sides and a wealth of information is at our fingertips that offers advice on every topic, with real estate being no exception. No wonder more and more home buyers are starting their home search online which, don’t get us wrong, is a great place to start–but that’s all it is–a place to start.
Despite what some may think, your real estate agent does much more than answer your questions and open doors for you with a special key. A professional real estate agent will be there for you every step of the way. We have the experience necessary to navigate the complicated, and sometimes stressful, home buying process and solve common hiccups that present themselves in every real estate transaction.
Our job is to be your advocate during the entire home buying process. We reach out to the other party’s agent as someone who will work with them to see the transaction through to a successful conclusion. We also come with a network of professionals who will work as a team to help you through the process. These include lenders, title reps, escrow officers, transaction coordinators, home inspectors, contractors and handymen, among others.
Most importantly, we are your ally. We negotiate on your behalf and are armed with experience and understanding of customary charges, costs and terms. We are here to ensure that the price you pay for your next home is fair for the condition and
neighborhood. We will negotiate repairs, if needed, and make sure you are protected with the proper contingencies.
The Internet offers a lot of great information, but the most important step you can take when buying a new home is hiring a local professional real estate agent. The knowledge and expertise we bring just be found by reading an article or two online.
