Why You Should Hire A Buyer’s Agent

So you wanna buy a home…

You know every detail this home needs, from the square footage, to the extra room you want to use as your home office/yoga studio/place of solace from your crazy kids. So with the research done and a budget set it’s time to hit the streets and turn this goal into reality, until, reality hits you in the face. You can’t find the home with your special room, your offers aren’t being accepted, and the original budget you set for yourself isn’t working out. PAUSE. This is where we come in, and when I say we, I mean buyers agents. And guess what? You don’t have to pay us a dime!

Here are 5 reasons why you should use a buyers agent when looking for your new home.

1) Searching during high volume periods

During these periods, (typically spring/fall) there’s an influx of inventory to choose from which can be daunting to many people. An agent will have the most up to-date information of what’s currently on the market and can filter through the properties that don’t fit your criteria.

2) Area expertise

Good agents are experts on the various neighborhoods throughout your county. They can give valuable input that you might have overlooked due to the stresses of your home search. Your agent can give deeper insight by providing comparable properties, pros & cons of each neighborhood etc.

3) Write offers and negotiate with confidence

You can feel more confident when negotiating a fair price for your potential home. This is a skill that a buyers agent has continuously worked on and has mastered. Your agent will help you come up with a strategy and implement that strategy to ensure your success.

4) Workflow/Paperwork

There is a TON of paperwork and due dates during a real estate transaction, and much of it can be confusing. An agent will be able to break everything down for you and make sure you don’t overlook the more important documents. Be confident that you will have a smooth and steady transaction.

5) IT’S FREE

Last but not least, hiring a buyer’s agent is free to you. We can’t tell you how many people don’t know that we get paid from the seller of the property. So with no cost to you, it should be a no brainer to hire a buyer’s agent, to have proper representation and to make sure you are getting the best deal possible.
