In this day in age with the online market you may think you don’t need a realtor when buying a home. However, there are several things that every real estate agent will do for you as the home buyer.
First of all, they will clarify what your exact wants and needs are so they can find the best options that are available to you. They will also advise you on the current market conditions. They will help you find a home by researching and guiding you through different neighbourhoods. They can help narrow your search to your top choices.
Buyer agents will show you properties by calling ahead of time to arrange the showing and make sure you know the location. They also usually prepare information packets for their clients about each home. They are there to guide you through properties, answering any questions you may have as you go.
They also save you money! Once you have found your home they will negotiate the offer. They will use the expertise to try to get you the best price for your purchase. They will have the knowledge to know the factors that affect the value of the home. They have the skills to communicate well with the seller’s agent and keep everyone informed. They prepare all of the necessary forms when making an offer, and they help you through to the end by being present at closing to ensure that all your interests are protected.
Having a buying agent will make the entire process go more smoothly as they will be your advisor the whole time.
