Talk To My Agent
Do You have a Real Estate Agent?
If you’re planning on buying a home, you may have already done some shopping around on your own. May be visited a few open houses or called the number on several For Sale signs to schedule a viewing of a property.
With enough time and expertise you can do all of that on your own. It becomes a second full-time job even while in pajamas at 2:00 am searching in circles on dozens of real estate advertising sites. However, each year national associations release statistics to prove that you’ll be more successful in finding your dream home at the right price when you're represented by an agent.
How A Real Estate Agent Works for You
A real estate agent, especially one who knows the local market (like a Pro), can help you find, buy home and make the entire process go smoothly for you. Being represented by a real estate agent helps you get the inside scoop on that property, so you know the full story. Your real estate agent can also point out desirable features, keep you on-track with your goal and potential “issues”, that you might otherwise miss.
Feel confident that you have the right amount of privacy by sharing your financial purchasing abilities with only your real estate agent to prepare, present and negotiate on your behalf. Did you know, if you don’t have a real estate agent representing you, you would have to deal directly with the seller’s agent, who represents and works in the seller’s best interests – not yours.
Bottom line: Your own personal real estate agent is there for you, every step of the way.
