What a REALTORⓇ Can Do For You As A Buyer

When we think of selling a home, the services a REALTOR® can provide usually seem worth the cost of their commission, but what about as a buyer? What can a REALTOR® do for you as a home buyer? Here are five great reasons you should hire a REALTOR® when you are in the market for a new home!

1. REALTORS® Can Help You Determine Your Budget. With a few simple pieces of information, a REALTOR® can help you pre-determine what kind of budget you may be looking at for your new home, and can match you with potential lenders that are right for you.

2. REALTORS® Have Access To Resources You Don’t. While a lot of real estate listings are available online, there are still resources and listings that are only available through a REALTOR®. If you are looking for something very specific, having their insider knowledge may be crucial to finding that perfect home.

3. REALTORS® Can Read Between The Lines Of Listings. There are a lot of catchy phrases that often appear in home listings, and your agent cantell you what they really mean.

4. REALTORS® Increase Your Negotiating Power. A REALTOR® cannot only increase your ability to negotiate things like price, they can also give you advice and help guide you though the contracts and required paperwork. A good REALTOR® should assist you with all aspects of purchasing a home, whether it is helping to co-ordinate inspections and surveys or working closely with you and your mortgage provider to ensure everything is ready by your closing date.

5. A REALTOR® Can Help You Navigate Through The Closing Process. The closing process can be complicated and a REALTOR® can make sure all the details are addressed.

Purchasing a home is a huge financial investment, and having a professional REALTOR® looking after your interests through the process is important.
