You Really Do Need a Professional When Buying a Home

Many people wonder whether they should hire a real estate professional to assist them in buying their dream home. Yes. In today's market: you need an experienced professional!

You Need an Expert Guide if You Are Going Down an Untraveled Path

The field of real estate is loaded with land mines; you need a true expert to guide you through the dangerous pitfalls that currently exist. Finding a home that is priced appropriately and is ready for you to move into can be tricky. An agent listens to your wants and needs, and can sift through the homes that do not fit within the parameters of your "dream home."

A great agent will also have relationships with mortgage professionals and other experts that you will need in securing your dream home.

You Need a Skilled Negotiator

In today's market, hiring a talented negotiator could save you thousands. Each step of the way - from the original offer to the possible renegotiation of that offer, after a home inspection, to the possible cancellation of the deal based on a troubled appraisal - you need someone who can keep the deal together until it closes.

Realize that when an agent is negotiating their commission with you, they are negotiating their own salary; the salary that keeps a roof over their family's head; the salary that puts food on their family's table. If they are quick to take less when negotiating for themselves and their families, what makes you think they will not act the same way when negotiating for you and your family?

Bottom Line

Famous sayings become famous because they are true. You get what you pay for. Just like a good accountant or a good attorney, a good agent will save you money...not cost you money.
