We are living in a buyer’s market, or so they say. Now is a better time than any to purchase a home. Having a real estate agent on your side is going to be the smartest way to not only find all the homes in your price range, but to save you time, potentially large sums of money, and a long list of hassles. Here are a few reasons why hiring a realtor is going to help you out on your journey to buying a home.
1. First off they will sit down with you and establish the type of home you are looking for and how much you are willing spend. Budget, wants, and needs are three of the hardest things to determine. Number of bedrooms, bathrooms, central heat and air, pool, second floor, basement, and more are all things that need to be considered prior to looking for a house.
2. They know the market and they have studied the prospective areas. Meaning, as a first time home buyer they are not going to walk you through the process, as someone approaching retirement they will find homes that will allow you to live a comfortable lifestyle in a manageable home, and as a family they are going to find you homes with good school districts or away from busy streets. They are trained to not only find homes with great deals, but homes that are going to fit your needs and personality.
3. Realtors will help you get the most out of your purchase. Remember, they want you to get the best deal as badly as you want it. They will stay with you from beginning until end until you are happy with your new home. They are going to look at more than the appearance of the home and warn you of the septic tank problems (or that there is a septic tank!), or mold issues shown on the inspection.
4. They will send you lists of potential properties for you to view and will set up home tours. It is really great the way they can work around your schedule and do all the home shopping for you while you decide which ones you like and do not like.
Buying a new home is an exciting experience. A real estate agents knows how to enhance that experience by not only helping you get the most out of your money, but by finding you what you are looking for by doing research on the location, home history, and more.
