Why should I use a Real Estate Agent to buy a home?
Your agent will give you their professional opinion regarding the price, location, and condition of any property that you are considering purchasing. If you are inexperienced in real estate, then you’re probably going to need a Real Estate Agent.
To begin, your Real Estate Agent can help you gage your buying power. Give your Real Estate Agent some basic information about your available savings, income, and current debt, and he/she can refer you to lenders best qualified to help you.
Next, your Real Estate Agent has many resources to assist you in your home search. Sometimes the property you want is available but not actively advertised in the market, and it will take some effort by your agent to find all available properties.
Finally, Real Estate Agents may assist you with negotiations. Here are a wide range of diversities that can affect negotiations when buying a home:
- date of possession
- repairs and furnishings or equipment
The purchase agreement should provide a period of time for you to complete appropriate inspections and investigations of the property before you are bound to complete the purchase. Overall, your agent can guide you through the closing process and make sure everything flows together smoothly for your buying experience.
