Why do I need a real estate agent when I buy a home?

Working with a real estate agentEver wonder why you need a realtor when you’re ready to buy a home?  Traditionally the Real Estate Agent works for the seller and looks out for the seller’s best interest. The listing agent can schedule and show the home but ultimately will do what it takes to sell their client’s home.

When you hire a buyer’s agent to represent your interest, in a sense, you level the playing field…bring a little balance. Your agent will work for you and look out for your best interest. From finding the home of your dreams to getting you to the closing table, the buyer’s agent is all in for you!!

A few things you can expect from a buyer’s agent (your realtor) when you’re in the market to buy a home — she will….

  • help you get started with the prequalification process by getting you in touch with a reputable lender in the local area
  • prepare a list of homes that fit your search criteria and get you scheduled for private viewings of the homes
  • negotiate a fully executed contract that looks out for your best interest in the purchase of your new home
  • schedule home inspections and appraisals, if necessary, and negotiate repair requests through the seller’s agent
  • work with the title company or closing attorney throughout
  • the entire process to ensure a smooth closing

I would love the opportunity to talk with you and answer any questions you may have about the purchasing process.  You can contact me here or just give me a call at 901-496-4565.
