How much does it cost to use a buyer’s agent?
It does not cost you, the buyer, any money to work with a buyer’s agent. The commission comes out of the seller’s proceeds. It’s totally free!
What are the benefits in using a buyer’s agent?
An ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative), such as myself, is specifically trained to meet the needs of today’s buyers. Besides the benefits discussed in the buyer consultation, it demonstrates my commitment to providing extraordinary service to buyers.
Why should I choose you to be my buyer’s agent?
I became a Realtor because I saw a glaring lack of customer service. I have over 10 years experience in both the private and public sector and wanted to bring those skills to this profession. Part of that is delivering accurate information, quality referrals, making sure things get done when I say they will and saving you money throughout the transaction.
What are the benefits of getting pre-approved with a local lender?
Besides a seller not taking you seriously or potentially not even allowing you in their home, getting your pre-approval allows you the ability to negotiate from a maximum position of strength. Also, certain loan types have certain conditions on the types of homes you can buy. If your financial picture is clear, you’ll find your next home a lot faster and without surprises.
Why can’t we just go look at the homes I contacted you about?
While many agents will take you to a home without any questions, I want to make sure the home is right for you first! You definitely want a responsive agent, but if you never meet with them first, how do you know they are a quality agent or have your best interests in mind? The home search process can be exciting, but that quickly wears off when you are taken to multiple homes that don’t match what you’re looking for.
