Using a Buyer's Agent
Buying a home is a huge commitment, and many start the process without the proper planning or preparation. An important step is having a buyer’s agent. Buyer's agents that represent you can be very helpful in house hunting. They will be aware of the local market and can help you navigate the process to pick the best property for you. Also, they can let you know when new homes are coming on the market.
Additionally, they can offer information concerning the pros and cons of various neighborhoods, as well as the taxes and local laws for various areas. As they receive part of the real estate agent’s commission, these services are free to you as the buyer. The seller pays the real estate agent’s commission. You as the buyer don’t have to pay anything for a buyer’s agent, so it’s in your benefit to have one.
Generally, a buyer's agent will aid with the following in the home buying process:
- looking for house listings
- setting up showings of houses
- asking and answering home buying questions
- offering pricing consultations
- negotiating with the home listing agent
- recommending other real estate professionals in the area
It’s important to be ready when you decide to start shopping for a home. A buyer's agent can help you significantly in getting ready for your house hunting.
