Buying a home is one of—if not the—biggest financial decision you can make. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or you've bought and sold property once or more, it's important that during the home-buying process you work with a competent and reliable real estate agent you can trust.
A discerning real estate agent can provide invaluable services to home buyers, such as:
- helping you locate properties in your budget that fit your search criteria;
- scheduling showings to visit and view the properties you've selected;
- presenting your offer and/or counteroffer(s);
- negotiating the terms of your offer as a result of issues uncovered during a home inspection;
- anticipating potential issues and promptly addressing concerns to minimize any adverse impact on the real estate transaction; and
- assisting you through the final walk through and closing.
Also, a skilled real estate agent should be able to provide you with resources on where to find quality:
- mortgage brokers;
- home inspectors;
- real estate attorneys; and
- general contractors, plumbers, and electricians.
