Because we are a real estate agency, it goes without saying that we would recommend hiring an agent to help you find your new home. But you don’t have to if you prefer to go to open houses and look through a plethora of homes online. Mostly, an agent will save you time and cost you NOTHING! Some of the things and agent can do for include:
- An agent can send you listings directly from the MLS that fit your specific parameters.
- Agents often know of new listings coming up that are not yet on the market.
- Agents will preview homes for you.
- An agent can generally spot overpriced listings and advise you accordingly.
Additionally, just because you may feel restricted by price ranges — especially if this is your first or second home purchase — don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t afford to be choosy when looking for a home to buy! You are unique. You have needs and wants for your new home that are different from everyone else. With that in mind, let’s define the process and some of the home buying parameters.
You may need to pay over list price in a seller’s market, especially if many buyers are vying for the same inventory. Your agent can give you a reasonable price range and help to manage your expectations. A good buyer’s agent knows there is always more to an offer than its price, but price is paramount.
